• Two groups of 30 riders in a single heat with the top 15 from each heat going into a 30 racer final.

    Only the strong will survive.

    Registration will open mid March.

    I'll update this post when registration details and any other news comes in.

  • I'll be racing (DFL most likely) and marshals will also be needed. List time:

    Racers

    1. Butters

    Marshals

    1. Sally

    Spectators don't need a list but are obviously very welcome. I'd bring plenty of beer and something really noisy.

  • Awesome.

  • Nice!!! let the hunting begin!

  • Saw this a few weeks ago via LCEF and awaiting it's arrival here...so in. First prize is a trip & place to the Red Hook crit!

    Also a good warm up for the ladies track meet in June I reckon.

    Am intrigued though as it states track bikes only - they saying no brakes, track gearing or just something fixed? Hillingdon has hills an' that kinda scary shit!

    Will fight you for DFL!

  • I think the rules are no brakes and no gears, but I'm sure the organisers will explain all when registration opens.

    Here's a Facebook page that will be updated as we get closer:

  • IN (for watchingz). Sounds like it could be good for an afternoon of lol

  • No brakes seems a bit idea in a crit. but what do i know.

    Will definitely sign up if people have a brakk. (viaing for DFL)

  • Oh yeah!

    I seriously doubt it's "no brakes" besides being a road circuit, it's also a public park which means anyone can "use" or cross the track at any time.

    I'm pretty sure the facility will require a working front brake on fixed wheel bikes.

  • judging by the recent spate of fixed gear criteriums, I would bet money that it require no brake.

  • That's funny. This claims to be the first in the UK.

  • No brakes for extra hipster points

  • Why not just grow a pair and race on a proper velodrome?

  • because that isn't what the cool kids in america are doing. And you would need to train for that.

  • That's funny. This claims to be the first in the UK.

    There have been a few in New York, Milan, One in Rotterdam (I think) and the far east recently. Each with a bunch of videos uploaded.

  • there was one in spain too I think.

  • Why not just grow a pair and race on a proper velodrome?

    Why ride around a playing field repeatedly rather than proper XC trails?

  • Why not just grow a pair and race on a proper velodrome?

    Am doing both! I'm seeing this as a warm up to VeloJam.

  • Why not just grow a pair and race on a proper velodrome?

    Because youre not allowed to skid in a velodrome

  • What's a chipotle? I thought it was a kind of sauce

  • I was considering this when I first saw it, sure there was something putting me off.

    Is the entry fee expensive?

  • Also is there a minimum age?

  • It's not the first in the UK, we have done it loads of times. We just didn't tell anyone!!!!
