The rider has just over 1 lap to get to speed before the start of the 200m
after finishing the effort the rider has to quickly exit the track! often coming into the warm-up circle "HOT" but it is necessary because the next rider is now executing his 200m....
Its not an awful way to get through a bunch of 200's on a track that has shallow enough banking to allow for the on deck riders to make it through the turns at a slow pace... It can be a little annoying if you run a big gear- because you have less time to get it up to speed.
