Tickets are several times more expensive than I paid for the Los Angeles World Cup earlier this year.

Mathilde Gros (FRA) simply came out of nowhere and is killing it in sprint events.

Her first Jr. World Championship was just over 2 months ago. She won Jr. Euro Championship Sprint and 500M in 2016.

Even then, that doesn't guarantee success at the Sr. level. Most Jr. World Champs still have a hard time competing against seniors.

Gros just won 3rd in Sprints after qualifying 3rd with a 10.739 in her first ever World Cup. She just won a ticket to World Championships and valuable Olympic points.

Not bad.

We’ll be there for the Friday evening session. It’s going to be one of the last major events there before the track is relaid.

Friday tickets now 2 for 1. (Ticketmaster Code AD241) Lots of spaces especially on Friday AM session.


Great that we get a new track to play on. Downside is 12 weeks of closure come March 18.

Yikes.

Any video of the crash? I'm hoping that it wasn't her inexperience that led to the wreck.

I was able to watch the Womens Omnium points race on YouTube. Granted, I think it's in Polish.


SPOILERS IN THE TITLE! Same for that accounts other videos, just beware.

Yeah, that's nuts.

He's using that super deep position:



From this camera angle, that position looks suspiciously like the forbidden "superman" position. Any one got any pics from the side?

As he's already huge, how is he not way outside the UCI box here?
