    Russian Sprint?

    I just watched this vid:https://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&f...&v=Y-tqvMunn0E and could not figure out what the Russian Sprint is all about except for the 'going fast' part....

    anybody?

    Just looks like a flying 200m as a group rather than individually?

    I know the guys in that video.

    Basically, it's a Flying 200M with a lead-out for the first part of it. Which means you don't have to break the wind on your own till you are at max speed. It's basically "poor man's motor-pacing".

    I think it's actually two-man teams spaced out, if I remember correctly.

    Exactly!

    I think it was worthy of a Youtube video because they did 3 pairs at once.

    Basically, the second guy in each pair is the one getting the benefit. The first guy is simply the "lead out man".

    Think of it as a 2-man lead-out drill...as a Flying 200M.

    If the first guy were on a motorcycle, then it would be a standard Motor-paced Flying 200M.

    Back in the olden days, it just meant riders had to take 5 shots of wodka before a 5-lap scratch.
