Encino Track Racing

Recently, Predator Cycling sponsored a track race at the Encino Velodrome. Thanks to everyone who came out, it was a great time!

Prior to the event, a few of the guys and I had been talking about mounting a few cameras to our bikes to see if we could capture the essence of track racing.  Tim ended up racing with cameras mounted front and rear, while I ran one in front. Before you’re too critical of the footage, just remember that this was our first time recording a track race! Even so I think it turned out pretty well.

The first part of the video was taken during Tim’s first Keirin heat race, then a section from the Keirin finals, the points race and the Belgian Win-and Out.

We did our best to set up Tim for the win, but it just wasn’t to be. Check out the video, it gives you a pretty good idea of what a points race looks like from inside the pack.
