That's it - I'm hooked. 45 minutes on the new Boulder Velodrome has convinced me that riding the track is one awesome sport! Kevin - you are right.
Dan grabbed a picture of Mike and myself to prove that Blue Sky Velo was one of the first teams on the track.... well at least in the Infield.
I got one picture of Mike on his rockin' new ride before his seat started slipping and no more track for Mike... at least last night. You know he'll be a regular from today on though.
Not only is riding the track far superior to being outside in the 6 degree temps, but it's an incredible workout. Check out 20 minutes of my heart rate - very easy to peg it without hardly pushing. Click for TrainingPeaks file viewer.
To give you a feeling for the corners, here's a picture of my co-worker Dirk going into Corner #3 - oh yeah, you stick, but it's scary... the first time. After a couple times around you don't even notice the banking. What you do notice are the G-forces!
So get over there and try it out.
