    So hot. Does a good job conveying exactly what it feels like riding the pine. E-ticket all the way.

    It raised my HR even though I was in a chair.

    I saw that video around the Olympics last year. I tried to count the revolutions and I come up with 140 rpm which seems a little high but it is definitely around 130+. Also, the exchange only takes 3 seconds. Man, I have to work on my spin.

    Great stuff. Speaking as a spectator, the team pursuits are my favourite track event.

    Really brings home what fascinates me about cycling - such a simple machine, yet you can go smokin' fast and/or huge distances under your own power. Never ceases to amaze me every time I roll off!

    I'd love to get a chance to ride on one of those tracks some time...

    Can't be too far away. I love riding the velodrome in Cleveland.

    Here are the USA Women practicing in Mallorca Spain before the Olympics. MEA and I have been to Mallorca and plan to go back and ride the new Velodrome.

    And NO ONE is a bad ass as the three men doing team sprint in the start of this video at Velo Sport Center at the Stub Hub Center last year.
