The Chariot Race Breakdown

Jon at TwoToneATL just wrote up a nice play-by-play breakdown of the chariot race — one lap around the track from a standing start. This is such a fun race to run with your buddies. It’s all about how fast you can get up to speed (and hold it for the remainder of the lap). Short and sweet! Nothing too serious so it makes a great race to run with your buddies whenever you’re hanging around the track.

Check it out at TwoToneATL.

These are some of the racers competing this weekend at Dick Lane Velodrome's The Omnium.  Great preview!

Also check my preview of Encino Velodrome’s Attack Of The Track People for more track racing action going down this weekend.

A few scans from Dick Lane Velodrome's very first race day program way back in 1975!

This is from DLV's grand opening event called Meet Of Champions on March 23rd, just over 35 years ago. The program includes velodrome info, race outlines, racer bios (one of them being a young Roger Young of LA Velodrome), a bunch of totally 70’s ads and even a blank page for autographs. All sponsored by Pepsi-Cola. So rad!

It’s really a great piece of track racing history. Download the full program here.

Racing at Dick Lane Velodrome in the 80’s.

Look at all those spectators!  From what I’m hearing from John at TwoToneATL, the crowd at DLV race days are almost to that level again.  Track racing is blowing up!

Congrats to Dave Espinosa (in the rad helmet) of Affinity Cycles on winning Ethic Inc’s The Keirin last weekend at Dick Lane Velodrome.

And for setting a new 200m track record!  Amazingly, the record will be held jointly with Andy Lakotash who tied Espinosa’s 11.03s 200m time on the same day.
