    Flying 200 strategy

    I would like some different prospectives on how to properly perform the flying 200 , to give yourself the best chance to reach your potential fastest time ie; track position , speed at entry etc.

    Good read as a starter... http://upupup.aboc.com.au/the-book

    I would expect track position etc will be velodrome specific - i.e. lines on a 250m or 330m track, angle of banking etc.

    The short answer is: It's complicated.

    Although they all look the same, there are several variations on how to approach the flying 200M. I think the #1 factor in lowering one's F200M time is to practice it. #2 is to follow different people and experience the different nuances of their approach.

    The flying 200M is a lot like sneaking up on a chicken.

    Ask the riders at your track. And depending on the track the fastest guy may not have the best stratigy. So find a bunch and try them out, see what works for you.
