This track is at 8500 feet of altitude and is crazy fast - no huge surprise that he took a few seconds off of his WR. In the women's flying 200, 3 riders went under Vogel's previous WR time, with Kelsey Mitchell riding a 10.154 for a new WR. and in the Men's, Nico Paul rode a effing 9.1, with Jair Tjon En Fa also riding a time that beat Pervis's previous WR (set at Aguascalientes, of course). and hell, Canada's men's TP team came within 2 seconds of a WR, too, and Georgia Simmerling came within .2 of a WR in the women's IP. absolutely crazy times... can't wait to see what happens in the kilo!

I'm a bit surprised the elevation isn't having a negative effect on performance. I've heard that generally, one can arrive at an elevation like that and perform well for a day or two before the effects kick in. But maybe some of them are conditioned for it.

From what I can remember from Tournant's and Hoy's record attempts for the Kilo, you basically have about 5-7 days before your body starts to really dial back because of the altitude. Ideally, you would try to attempt a record on day 3 or 4.

Lambie spent the last month sleeping at 2500m (and training at 1600m).

Hoy wrote about how much he was suffering from altitude in his first attempt in Bolivia - in an outdoor velodrome.

This makes a lot of sense.

I’ve known Ashton for a long time, and this is just so much fun to watch. Aside from being a monster on the track, he is just a good guy – enjoys all aspects of cycling and helping other people to get on bikes and ride. No snobbery at all.
