LA Velodrome Friday night Fight pics

Finally went to the Velodrome and watched the races. Wow, very cool. I really wish I was closer. I will eventually go do a beginner course, its on my radar now. Should be a great experience.

I was racing Fri night (and getting my butt kicked), but it is a lot of fun. I highly recommend it!

45 degree banking might as well be vertical when you look down from the top!

I know one of the guys in the pictures. If its not too far for you, you should come out to the encino velodrome. Its a bit easier to get on that track then the one in LA.
