But if you don't push him really hard, you'll never turn into an annoying sports parent. Living vicariously through your kids is where it's at.

Well, I gave it a go today. Riding the other way round a velodrome, I mean. It was, um, interesting. Things just felt slightly wrong. I reckon doing a flying 200 or something would be even more interesting.

i went backwards after training one night

didnt get above the blue line... worse than the first time riding the track

Well, think of the likely carnage if some of the racers were going the other way. :)
