    Bromont Velo

    Any Quebec track racers here? Would like info on the Bromont Velo and what kind of license I would need as an American to race there.
    I've been on the track in Moncton.

    Thanks for the input. Just ordered carbon tubular 60's. Final big decision was matte vs glossy. Went with the matte finish. The builder is a proponent of tape.
