Filed Under: Bike

Riding the boards of a velodrome is a cycling experience different to any other. Fixed gear bikes, steep bankings and incredible speeds in close proximity to one another make track races some of the most exciting bike races to watch. But just how fast are Olympic trackies compared to us mere mortals? We sent our very own Alex Paton to the Lee Valley Velodrome to meet up with a track cycling beginner, and multiple Olympic gold medallist Ed Clancy, for a race. Who will win? Nobody knows!
