Each track has it's own culture...even for warmups. At DLV there is usually a 20 lap paceline that will sometimes get progressively faster. Sometimes too fast for my tastes. Afterwards, there are 3 x 100M "Jumps". A jump is a rapid acceleration. In warmups it's used to get your fast-twitch power muscles activated.
They are done in this order:
: Accelerate in the saddle from at or before the Oz Pizza sign.
: Stand and accelerate from at or before the Oz Pizza sign.
: Get a head start and come into turns 1 and 2 faster than normal, similar to the flying 200m windup, hence the name. Then accelerate out of the saddle at the Oz Pizza sign from the higher lead-in speed. This should be the fastest of the 3 efforts.
