    There's definitely an awkward chicken or the egg thing.

    But there are places where track spectatorship is decently high, in the USA. Here in Minnesota, local suburb families come out for a night...

    I've had a good look inside the finances of a few velodromes and I won't mince words: they hemorrhage funds. Or, rather, they require an influx of money. I would be very surprised if any track in...

    Excellent sentence and I can't stress it enough.

    As an example: a friend of mine is in her second year of racing and she is already one of the standout riders at our velodrome. She has a wicked...

    Buy something stock, have a bike now, and spend the rest of the money on, like, upgrading over time. Or, better yet, race entry fees. Experiences > things.

    No need unless you don't like the bike. Your Vigorelli has track-specific geometry. Some people prefer the 74-degree angles and accompanying low-rake forks that tend to be found on spring bikes, but...

    Spinning a low gear will help you get comfortable at a high cadence. But there are a lot of components to power at the end of the race - putting down power while at a high cadence, for one; and...

    the flip side of this is that it positions your front axle to ding your disc right outside of the hub. non-offset ones can be a tricky but they stack the two wheels axle-to-axle which helps protect...

    Just about wheelbag will work, as long as you're careful. I have a Zipp padded wheelbag, and some FFWD much-less padded ones. Both work. One has more padding than the other. Shrug.

    Everybody I know who has used gatorskin tubulars has found them to be a much crappier ride even than modern Sprinters... and not particularly flat resistant, to boot.

    Last night at the track we ran a Ten Mile Final. I view this as a quintessentially American event, and at a lot of tracks, it's timed and the track keeps a record of the fastest event. So it's a...

    I train like a crit racer. I'm a meh cat 2 crit racer, and a decent cat 2 enduro. A lot of my weeks wind up being about 12 hours, with a couple as many as 15 when I'm loading up in the spring. Once I...

    Thanks! No secret sauce here. I was on a 93 (48x14) for the scratch and points races, and a 92 (51x15) for the madison and elimination. That's within a range of being pretty similar to each other,...
