Newby at the track... looking for work outs

I just started riding at the velodrome, and was wondering what kind of work outs people do when they are training. I am not preparing for any specific event, but know my sprints are extremely weak and need a lot of work. does anybody have any workouts/routines I can do at the track so that i'm not just wasting time there.

thanks

What workouts you should be doing depend on what you're trying to acheive. Is you sprint limited by strength, recovery or pedaling technique?

Hey guys,

I found this a while ago. It's a got a lot of basic track info, as well as a few specific on-track workouts you can try. Enjoy:
