ANALYSIS OF A SPRINT


Mark Buckaway has been shooting POV track footage up at Forest City Velodrome for a while now. In his latest video, Mark narrates a Match Sprint between him and Jim Morrow.

Since the track is so short — 138 meters, the shortest velodrome in North America — the Match Sprint is five laps long and the sprint is often engaged with two laps to go. Must be pretty crazy to hit those turns at speed — just look how steep those banks are!

Mark cites Victoria Pendleton as his sprinting inspiration. The only diference is Vicky would usually win… except if she’s up against Anna Meares.

Thanks for sharing, Mark!
