I doubt the issue is the track - I think the issue is likely comfort, fit, and experience in the aerobars.

Practice isn't the same as competition. You need to be comfortable when you're going...

Yeah, I mean - this is the sort of thing that rings true. I don't know if the daily mail would be able to come up with "super bike isn't beefy enough for sprinters" on their own.
