Thanks! As I have decided to get back into the sport this coming year, this is actually VERY useful for me as I'm looking to get on a training platform to work out with indoors.

You're welcome! Don't hesitate to toss any questions my way. I am very familiar and have current subscriptions to some of these apps: TrainerRoad, Rouvy, BKOOL, and ZWIFT. I have yet to find a single program that meets all of my needs, but Rouvy is probably the closest -- if they would just improve their workouts so that the instructional text is more apparent. So currently, I use Rouvy for my endurance rides and TrainerRoads for my interval training and structured workouts.

I just learned that Kawasaki keirinjo (Urban Bank) has a pretty excellent English language webpage with a very clear schedule of races, something I wish ALL keirin tracks had. Also handy guides in English on how to bet:

There doesn't seem to be any video content when I visit these links. What am I missing here?

The first link is over - live coverage finished.
I can still obtain the second link.
Maybe one has to be an xfinity subscriber to view it.

You know what's weird?

There's been ZERO ****ing coverage of the fact that Madalyn Godby won the keirin at the Berlin World Cup. Nothing from USAC, news outlets, nuthin'. It was an amazing sprint too.

Agreed. Can track get at least a condescending pat on the back once in a while from US media or even the USAC? For ****'s sake. Can anyone remember the last time a US rider won a sprint race at that level?

Wow.

1: Congrats to Madalyn.

2: I believe that meets the criteria to qualify for the highest tier of financial support from USA Cycling.

3: WTF, USA Cycling?

I wanted to see some racing when I was in Japan in 2015 but without any Japanese friends was totally out of luck with schedules etc.

Yeah this thing is super helpful. I've been here for years on and off and I still know **** all about how to actually go watch it live in person. Having a schedule in English is massive. I wish all the tracks ad this!

Live stream of the Swiss Track Cycling Challenge, i dont think it is geo locked https://www.tissotvelodrome.ch/home/rennen-live-stream/

John Archibald done a 4.10.177 in the IP this afternoon. Second fastest time ever and would be the sea level record (if 450m is considered sea level). Like Ashton Lambie he is in his late 20s and a relative late comer to track - it was only just over a year ago he was doing his first races at the Glasgow track league.

Training software program to practice 500m and 2k IP

What is the best way to practice 500m and 2k IP on training software like Zwift, Rouvy etc? Is there a way to create exact distance like 500m or 2k to time oneself? I have both a Tacx Neo and Elite Real E-Motion Smart rollers I want to use for this during the winter.

I heard there are new track frames listed on the UCI approved frame list. I can't find this list on the UCI web site (or anywhere else) - where is this list?

The UCI web site is a very poor site imho!

Google got rid of their site hosting. I just put it up on GitHub, so it's available again. And anyone can download it and modify TrackBikeGraphData.js to add bikes. Feel free to contribute back too. And if anyone is in need of a javascript project, modifying the chart code to allow the label legend to expand past the height of the graph would allow for more models to be displayed at once.

I made a training video for easy access and I will be uploading more programs from @upupup.
This is my first time making a video, so please feel free to tell me how to improve this video.

Thanks

The program is from upupup.
If this video violates anything please tell me

The video is a good idea but needs tweaking to make it user friendly.
At the moment you couldn't run it without having the UpUYpUp plan open in-front of you as well. It doesn't say what gear you need for some of the intervals until you start it.

For example at 14.06 it goes into a rest period and just says "next, seated rolling", but nothing about gear selection. That only appears once the interval has started.

Hope that helps
