Looks...dangerous. Do I need tatts to enter? Who was this event sponsored by again?

I love it when the rider falls in front of Danny MacAskill and he just rides over the top of him and keeps going. Legend.

Here's an example of UCI regulation one (smallest Velodrome).
(FME these size tracks are an experience to race on in a big bunch 8) )
Regione Lombardia ... The 166m velodrome. :mrgreen:

Bit of research, ron king velodrome muswellbrook is 165m, don't think it's still going. :?:

Let us know if there is one in Newcastle. Not too common in Oz.

Seems the track was 125m, and they were lapping at best around 11 and a half seconds. 8)
Passing was on the down run, and falls occured there. Would have been quite a buzz to be
changing from left to right track, and some G forces. :wink:
