My son won Gold in the USCF Jr Regional in '86 on the Velodrome at Cal State Dominguez Hills as a 9 year old.

Try point racing on the olympic track in Montreal 58* banking, I've crashed on the road but nothing like at that spin-cycle set gear biked track.

Joe, sorry to say, but they don't do much bike riding where he is now .... it's a long sad story. I'll tell you about it one day.

Oh yeah, I am old

I didn't mean to dis' track riders. I had my son training on the Encino Velo, but I never tried the track .... very hairy ride with no brakes and no freewheeling

My comment was strictly for the road riders
