Bicycle speedway/grass track racing

by TRs Blurb n Blog   April 17, 2009  

Has any body on this forum done it? I'm thinking of giving it a go for a bit of a laugh and an excuse to build up another bike. Is there anything I need to know?

I'd like to have a go too. For me, hills are not easy, but I can motor along on anythings else, especially if I suspect someone trying to get past/trying to get away!

I didn't have a go but it did look like fun. A top tip would be not to take your best togs and maybe wear something that you don't mind rolling about on the floor in!

It's not just about the size of your cog.
