    how are these times?

    hi guys, i`m new to the world of track cycling, but i went down today for just the second time to my local keirin track (i live in japan), and did a 1km and a 3km run.

    i got 1.20.10 for the 1km, and 4.05 dead for the 3km. it was windy, blustery, and i was on my road bike. is that any good? thanks...

    its a little hard to say. track times are based on fixed gearings. Did you change gears at all from the moment you first started in either run?

    That's a decent kilo time. At the regional championships here last year the Senior men ranged from 1:11 to 1:25. Your time would have put you tenth out of fifteen.
