Track cycling magazine?

Does anyone know of a specific magazine for track cycling with the US fan in mind? That might be asking a lot, so if not how about just English speaking fan.

There isn't one.

Also, magazines are being replaced by blogs and other similar websites for numerous reasons.

You might be able to get your fix by finding the right mix of websites to follow.

The worldwide track blog (fixedgearfever) is about to shut down. Mostly pushed out by facebook, I think.

This is a very interesting blog: http://thefixedgear.wordpress.com/

From the "About" page:
Quote:
Just like what’s said in the About and Welcome page, we are Kean and Anna. Of course, we’d like to keep a lot of details under wraps since we’re dealing with a presumably sensitive site. We love sports, and we love athletes. We love working with them. We have joined several teams as sports physiologists and physical therapists. We have majors in physical therapy and sports physiology and nutrition. Our studies major in cycling, both road and track cycling although we fell in love with track cycling the moment we laid our eyes on it during our time in school.

Kean did studies on cyclists thigh muscle recruitment long ago and used that to pursue postgraduate studies on sports physiology and track cycling. Anna meanwhile did a study on endurance and performance patterns between novice and elite cyclists and used this to pursue postgraduate studies on sports physiology and endurance sports. We’re not a couple as some would like to believe. We’re both straight and have reasonably happy relationships. Kean was born on 1983 while Anna on 1984. We were both born on Colorado, USA but have since then moved from one state to another.
They stopped updating about 2 years ago, but there is some good info in there and LOTS of photos. A good read for a few days.
