Top stuff. Great pic of big Dean Taylor barging into Adrian Hansen.

I took a mate from work - first time he's seen the track cycling - and he loved it.

Yep. First race of the night on about lap 2. About six riders came off in a motorpaced race. There wasn't enough pace on, riders were 3 or 4 wide and someone must have fallen over the wheel in front.

Must be about $1000 of useless carbon there. Should post it on the road forum. alanbikehouston will have something to spout off about.

Nothing. They just all fell over. Nobody got hurt or hit the inside barricades or the ballestrade that I could see.

You shtstirrer.

I've smashed normal aluminium rims at least as bad as that, although I did hit the deck pretty hard.
