Your video clips are always entertaining, but I don't think that's a velodrome. Though to be fair I don't know if it would be completely legal to ride a unicycle on a velodrome. Does show what the difference in acceleration and top speed between wheel sizes.

Oops! I didn't realize "tack racing" referred only to velodrome. I have thought about trying it, but there's no way a unicyclist could stay on the banks without falling! Bikes have the necessary speed and configuration for it.

As said, still cool to see the actual difference in top speed and acceleration.
