The article is old, but Florida velodrome association shared this today: https://www.archdaily.com/261889/lux...charles-wagner

It reminds me of those concept bikes designed by design students who have never ridden a bike.

It's interesting to see the social media strategy that Beat Cycling Club has employed. They tweet...A LOT. Lots of coverage of training and events and behind the scenes stuff. It's really enlightening and enjoyable.

I can't say that I've ever seen a track team do this. Not sure if road teams are doing this. Pretty cool way to embrace technology.

Their instagram is also fairly lit and pretty entertaining.

I just saw a Facebook post from SRM where they are doing some aero testing at the velodrome in Pruszków, Poland. In one of the pictures, it looked like they were testing a new Origin version of their track SRM. The Origin arms use the Look pedal system to be able to be changed to three different lengths. It would be pretty convenient if they had arms that could be 165, 167 and 170.

I know the track design itself is suspect - (figure 8's -- really? ) But the concept of a multi-use facility would better justify the existence of some of the tracks out there that are or have been struggling to stay afloat

It would be hard to get Loggins & Messina out to the Superdrome to play in the infield for instance , but other community park type events would be possible to work in around the riding schedules

A BMX track would even fit comfortably in the infield of a lot of tracks ---- would serve the purpose of introducing young people to our sport, --- and dads and moms too nervous to bust out double jumps may feel more comfortable trying their hand on the boards as well

That’s awesome. I recall seeing the road version on their website with mention of a track version.

Milton has two (maybe three?) basketball courts in the infield that get used for badminton and volleyball as well. Seems to to work.

Yeah, a multi-use facility seems to be the best model. LA has a gym and (I think) movable volleyball courts in the infield.

I think if it's planned as a multi-use facility from the beginning with a clear plan on how that would work as well as protect the surface of the track, then it could work.

This is Track and Field (Athletics).


More than 30 Russian athletes participating in Siberian Indoor Championships last weekend abruptly withdrew from competition when drug testers arrived at the event.

According to the Russian sports website Championat, as many as 36 athletes cited various illnesses for withdrawing from the competition at the city of Irkutsk.
https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-...testers-arrive


This is getting weird:


In 2016, one Russian athlete tried to bribe a drug tester and another ran out of the stadium during her own race to avoid being tested, the World Anti-Doping Agency says.
But, it's being handled internally, so nothing to worry about:


The Russian track and field federation "has started an internal investigation" into the incident,
:D

Haven't been here for a while, but fondled a team Aus BT Ultra today with a lot of our secret squirrel stuff, very cool bits going on and will post pics when I'm on the computer

Are the Aus sprinters on Ultras as well? I was considering picking up a BT but couldn't decide between the Edge and Ultra. What do you think of the dropouts on the Ultra?

I think they switch between them for different events, looks like the ultras are used for timed events more than the edge where they'd probably want the slightly faster frame aerodynamically.
More traditional than the edges so might be easier to source but I'm sure both are more than adequate. If you're undecided maybe ask BT for a geo chart as I think there are subtle differences between the two, one being pursuit oriented and the other sprint.
