How lucky can you get! Monday morning and we are at the Sydney Velodrome for open training. There is one other rider on the track plus Chris and me. $10 entrance fee.
A good day to pick gears for the upcoming Clarence St Carnival which will be inside so no rain outs allowed!!
We do about 15 minutes of warm up when a derney fires up and Ben Kersten, Aussie Olympian, comes out to do some motor pacing.
A little different than back home, the slow riders ride below the blue line and Kersten and the derney ride at the blue line.
He is out for a few sessions but bascially, we have the track to ourselves for about 2 hours when we finally tire and decide to leave.
