My flying 200m was 16.23 sec and the next slowest person would be .5 sec faster. Even in the 4000m I would average over 22mph and still dead last. So I'll just root for the kids from the sidelines, my oldest will make it your way this winter I'm sure but will be doing nationals in TTown this year.
You don't necessarily need to race in order to ride on the track. Many people do it for fun and a way to safely get a workout without the dangers of riding on the street. Personally, I wouldn't want to race without being competitive, and it takes a lot of time and effort to get good at it. You need to do specific training to develop power and lactic threshold in order to succeed on the track. It's not easy.
