the 'drome

last update to the 'drome: 8/26/2008

If between New Years and March 1 you had trouble accessing velodrome.com
it's because cyberpirates in Russia temporarily took control of the domain.
I've regained control, and the process of bringing it up to date is underway.

Sorry for any inconvenience.


Rest In Peace

How to Acquire Images

Special offer for racers only.  When you're ready to purchase images, I will gather together a package
of every shot I have of you from an event, burn your images on CDROM and charge you a single
research and usage rights fee of $50 per rider per event (for example: World Masters is an event.
The Kilo is one race within an event).

I usually shoot big events pretty thoroughly. As such, it's very likely there will be good images of your
efforts in my archives. How many images I have of each rider will vary depending on the events you
rode. If you entered every race allowed at a regional, national or world level event
- there might be 20
or more images
in my files, or if you rode only the 200m sprint qualifying or the 500m TT - a minimum
of 1 or 2
.  Even if you only ride one lap - I may only have that one lap on file. Regardless - under this
special deal for athletes, I charge for my time doing the research - not by the number of images you
end up with.

When you are place an order, do us both a favor and send all the info I will need to identify you from
what may be thousands of images shot at the event. Pay the $50 (in US funds only please) by check,
Postal Money Order or PayPal. The fee is all-inclusive - covering shooting, research, mastering, CDROM
media cost, shipping & handling.
When the funds clear my bank I'll send you the CDROM disk.

Our CDROM disk is guaranteed compatible with all popular operating systems, and comes with PC
and MAC OS viewers on the disk to facilitate image viewing immediately upon receipt.

Instructions for placing a CDROM order:

  1. Send an email message to mike@velodrome.com with ALL the pertinent information necessary
    to identify you (images are culled by sight from the archives). Do whatever it takes for clear identification.
    Your age group, event, days, sessions and times of competition, every bit of clothing you were wearing,
    what kind of bike you rode, wheels, shoes, helmet, your placing and if you made it to the awards podium.
  2. Include the postal shipping address you want the CDROM sent to.
  3. When I send an email response back saying your CDROM is ready, send $50 (in US funds only please) either
    by check, Postal Money Order or www.PayPal.com (my ID is mike@velodrome.com) to:
                Mike Gladu
                5914 Greenmont Drive
                Houston, Texas, USA, 77092-2330
  4. CDROMs are shipped USPS Priority Mail to domestic buyers, and USPS Global Priority Mail for international
    sales. Express international shipping is available for an additional fee.

All photos sold by Mike Gladu on CDROM are copyrighted, and released only for personal, non-profit use.

Release of copyright for other uses (commercial/for-profit) negotiated on a case-by-case basis.

Track Coaching Registry

I'm frequently asked to recommend a track coach. I know quite a few. Rather than play favorites,
Someday I'm going to put together an online list for folks to pick their own. To meet that end, I'm collecting
contact info from track cycling coaches, trainers and directors of rider development programs worldwide.

Interested? Go to the Track Coaching page and play.

I've probably got enough info from coaches to go online with Version 1.0.
I'm terribly behind on doing this, but it will get done. Keep the info coming!
