WHAT’S THAT ABOUT THE APPLE AND THE TREE? 

I just read this great interview with track legend Jack Simes on Velo Veritas.  In the article, the multiple National Champion and former six-day racer talks about his whole career riding velodromes in the sixties and seventies.  Of course, Jack Simes (the rider in the left photo circa early 1960’s) is father to young Jackie Simes (the rider in the right photo circa 1998) who currently races the six-days in Europe.  What I love about the Simes family is that Jack’s father (the holder in the left photo) and even his grandfather before that were also bike racers.  That’s four generations of bike racing!

Read the whole interview and check out more photos on Velo Veritas.
