Amateur track racing in Japan

I thought you guys might like a few shots from a recent race I did. The tracks still impress me just to look at here, beautiful.

I came 4th in the kilo (despite pulling my foot at the start!), but got spanked in the keirins and a scratch. Third in my keirin repechage was the best I could manage, it was downhill from there.... Still tons of fun.

Yeah, it was run in the rain. That's how we roll here. (the track is not slippery in the wet at all)
