Wow, that was fun! I got to watch Cat 1-5 racers sprint against each other tonight at the National Sports Center Velodrome in Blaine, MN. This was the first time I've ever seen live bike racing and it was such a rush that I plan to rent a "fixie" (cycling lingo for "single, fixed gear bike") and take a spin around the track myself. There were four crashes, which I must admit was kind of fun, but even more fun was watching the best sprinters in our state generate enormous power on their bikes in what seemed like an instant.
Can't wait to go again!
