    Sample video footage of a typical race

    For the new racers:

    This is a Category C race at Duncan Gray Velodrome in Australia.

    This is a "Miss & Out" also known as "Elimination" or "Devil Takes the Hindmost". The basic rule is that it's race where the last person in the pack is eliminated every lap down to 3 riders. With 3 guys left, then it becomes a 2 lap scratch for the finish. So, the fight is to not be last.

    This video contains real-time:
    - Cadence
    - Speed
    - HR
    - No power

    It also shows how close the riders are and how they safely behave.

    Pay particular attention to the fact that for 4 minutes, once the rider is up to speed, his cadence didn't drop below 100RPM and peaked out at 130RPM making speeds of 45-55kph (28-35mph). I would estimate his gear to be 50/15 or 47/14.

    My home track, I live 10 minutes from it and race there year round. Our summer series finished last night, the program for which included an elimination, one of my favorite events. Night and season ended with a 50 lap points race.
