    On the Track - Photos

    Place to post photos of you racing or training on the velodrome.

    Victorian Club Teams Premiership last Sunday - Yearly competition where clubs across the State compete against each other racing the Team Sprint and Team Pursuit.

    Photo of me on the front racing the Team Pursuit. We ended up winning the Masters division. Qualifying first with a 2:18.024 and winning with a 2:18.524 (for some bizarre reason this year they had us only riding 2km! )

    Tony's flyin' the club colors! And it's nice to see that they're finally issuing regulation size numbers. Wasn't substandard numbers (size and color) one the problems that led to the dismissal of the officials on Tuesday nights? Can't say I didn't tell ya so!

    Yep, sucks! My dad is moving this month to Cocoa Beach, FL though. Not sure if there is a track anywhere near there. But if so I may try to get my Dolan out there before May.

    The velodrome at Brian Piccolo park between FT Lauderdale and Miami is about 3 hours away.

    They actually started racing today: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...-Racing-Seires

    I forget about the snow and cold you guys have to deal with. How many indoor velodromes are there and in which States?

    There are only two indoor velodromes in the US.

    One is a standard 250M in Carson, CA (near Los Angeles): http://www.lavelodrome.org/
    They recently hosted the UCI Paralympic World Championships this month. They have also hosted at least one UCI World Cup event.

    Boulder Colorado has a 142M track: http://www.boulderindoorcycling.com/

    Dick Lane Velodrome is in Atlanta where the winters are moderate. The outdoor track is available year-round for training and the race season runs a full 6 months.
    http://www.dicklanevelodrome.com/

    Baton Rouge, Louisiana has a velodrome, but it is a newly renovated 333M outdoor track in a very warm part of the country, but the track scene is largely inactive. I'm not sure why, but it's certainly unfortunate.

    I think you spelled that wrong: it should be, "some FAST guy".

    Forest City Velodrome isn't too far away, but they are in a Provence (Ontario) not a State. I guess the new temporary velocrome in Chicago is planned to morph into an indoor velodrome if the plans come through.

    All of you guys are monsters. If I race track and get pics taken, I will look like a feeble little *****.

    There are lots of skinny punks that race here. A few massive legged guys, but probably more little spinny legs.

    I'm excited to get started up once the season kicks in. You racing this year? Post your bike or a link so I will recognize it.

    I'm pretty good on the road and I've never ridden a drome. Would ~80gi be sufficient for a first timer? If I get my crankset on in time, I'll be around 85gi. I definitely feel like I can handle the increase on the road, but I'm not sure about the increased difficulty in skidding. Especially since I'm running these tiny BS plastic clips until I get some large Allcitys.

    I am 100% serious, and I tell you this all the time. Hit me up whenever you want to go to the velodrome. Its always better to be on the track learning rather than online.

    For a starter 80 is on the lower end of something that should work, 85 sounds a bit beatter. But it is widely dependant on who you are and how you ride. I have a spare 14 and 15 cog if you want to try some different things out. And on racedays there is a ton of gearing options around. Stephen who runs the track progam is a professional mechanic for SRAM neutral support, and has tons of great knowledge and gear.

    Hit me up some time, we will go riding.

    Turns out I don't know how to link to a Picasa album photo, so let's hope this works. In the back in orange:
