    Some of you may be familiar with the bike race The Little 500 and the movie it inspired "Breaking Away". For every one else the Little 500 is a 200 lap (50 mile) bike race held on the cinder race track in the Bill Armstrong Stadium at Indiana University. Founded in 1951 this is the 63 running of the race. The race is a relay style race with 33 four man team of students. This years race was won by the pole setters team Beta Theta Pi in a white flag lap sprint to pass returning champs Delta Tau Delta to take the checkered flag by .319 seconds. rounding out the top 5 were Phi Delta Theta (3), Cutters (4), and Black Key Bulls (5)

    Super group on pics. Looks like a lot of fun. We did something very similar when I was in college at Morehead State University around university circle. Lots of bloody knees and sore legs, but tons of fun.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Nice set! I especially like the panning, crashes, and bike swap shots. I have never attended the event but loved that movie as a kid. When I was a young teen I visited a friend in Bloomington and got to ride a lap on the track and take a swim in Icebox Quarry.
    Thanks for sharing those!

    OP, thanks for sharing these photos and thanks also for the trip down memory lane. This race has evolved to the point where it has almost a cult following of sorts. I was privileged to see it in person almost 25 years ago. Great job!
