    stayer racing pics from Nürnberg

    Hello.

    Just wanted to share some pictures I took at a stayer race last May in Nuremberg, Germany. Stayer racing is not very well known in North America.

    Wow, those guys/gals must really fly with those chainrings and no wind. What kind of speed?

    Wiki says avg speeds in the 60-70 km/h with max speed at about 100 km/h

    very cool. what is that along the edge of the wheels? it looks like tape between the tire and rim to prevent rolling a tire, maybe.

    Speed:

    Wiki’s are not always that accurate. Olympic track sprinting is 60-70kph.
    Lets see: 70t x 14t = 108rpm at 70kph.

    As for the tape on the wheel: Look at the full size original picture. The tape looks to be bridging the gap from the tire to the wheel to smooth the potentially turbulent airflow in that tire to wheel transition. (it will make a difference at those speeds) Take a look at the full size picture of the front wheel – the tire wheel transition gap is taped there too.
