Hellyer: The "Other" Bicycle Racing on NBC

NBC Bay Area is running a slideshow on their website about Hellyer Park Velodrome, track racing and its growing populartiy with urban fixed riders (the guys from SJFixed get a good feature).

It’s a pretty cool photo essay and worth checking out even if the captions are written for total newbs. I hope this major media coverage helps to bring more people out to the velodrome. Like Felipe Buitrago (pictured) who was riding fixed as a messenger for years before getting into track racing, maybe they’ll see how easy it is to get started (and become addicted).

See the slideshow at NBC Bay Area.
