Your tires should be pumped to the required amount and the tire should not have wear or tear. Your brakes should be in working condition. You should have all your spokes. If you are missing any of these

Maybe install some brakes so you can stop.

There are not any 5000 pound Buicks on a velodrme track, there are on the street. Just saying.

start by lowering your ratio. I started with a really high ratio and it took me a really long time to pull off a skid stop

What gear ratio's make it easier to skid? Also just a side question, has anyone ever tried to skid with a belt drive? Curious about how that would work
