I love track racing! Today was my first day taking lessons at the velodrome.

It was like riding a bike for the first time. Adrenaline was really pumping. After I finally got used to no brakes this was the most fun I have had in a while.

If anyone has a track nearby you must try it!

I will be building a Dura Ace track bike this week. Defiantly better than the 15 year old miyata I used.
Same feeling when I tried it this season.hrv

The velodrome is about a 1 1/2 hour drive but it was worth it. I only did it once but plan on doing more next year. Probably will take another class or 2 then start racing in the 4/5's. My jaw dropped when I saw the 43 degree banks for the first time. After a few laps got used to it, though.
