    On the track videos

    I tired out track racing last season, had a blast but needed to end my season short. Picked it back up this year and as my fitness + time on track are coming around having a lot of fun. Been running a camera under my saddle for kicks, some of the videos are fun to watch post race. Here are a few from last week, I managed to win the Cat 4 omnium and got upgraded to Cat 3. Raced Cat 3 for the first time Friday night and realized how much I need to figure out.

    These are from Marymoor Redmond Washington, it's a 400m track.
    8 Lap scratch race:

    Unknown distance scratch race:

    5x4 points race:

    I had my camera lens off by 90' for these races, so I had to edit for rotation.

    I have my parents Brit dry sense of humour, don't take any of the comments on the video's too seriously

    I hope you don't mind that I edited your post to embed your videos. I kept the links, too.

    No worries, I was trying that last night but the pop up box to embed the video url was hanging.

    Mr Crampy's, I'm much more of a Triathlete. Got into track a little bit last year as a means to get in interval work and bump my threshold up. Plus it's warmer, drier, and closer than Cyclocross

    great videos and thanks for sharing! I'm the CycleU guy that excels at finishing 6th. Didn't realize you had a camera or I would have put on my best Tommy Voeckler face. Guess i'll need to cat up to see more

    cheers, Travis

    Ya, about Cat'ing up... I need to move my camera to the front of the bike to record action in Cat 3. Everybody is fast and all of the little mistakes get gobbled up....

    Cat 3 6x5 from last Friday

    Hey, thanks for posting the vids, I hopefully will start racing after the new year and this has give me some sort of insight of what the events are like. I thought there would be a rule/regulation specifying that cameras weren't allowed (one more thing to fall off the bike?). Anyway, watched them all and learned a fair bit, thank you!

    I hear that there are a lot of people in GB who want to start track racing after this summer. :-)

    Yes, local tracks may or may not have regulations on putting extra stuff like videos on the bike. Depends on the venue.
