World's first night report
wow. my first track races i get to see the world champions crowned. last night was so cool. i was amazed at how fast these folks ride, and how steep(!!!!) the track corners are!
the points race was insane, 160 laps of lactic acid, i swear you could smell it in the air. the polish rider crashed, got back up and still finished ninth. afterward i saw him on his road bike with a backpack on riding back to the hotel( i assume). poles must be on a budget.
it was hard watching the canadian and japanese guy get chewed up and spit out. kinda nice to see the pros are still human though.
if any of you guys can go, do it. there's no bad seats in the place and you can get close to the action. they even raffled off a felt road bike!
anyone else there last night?
