  • track temperature and track surface age might also play a factor.

    Definitely. I could ride so slow and upright around meadowbank that I had to lean the bike over a bit when my inside pedal was at the bottom of the stroke to avoid it hitting the track.

  • The weathered afzelia surface on Meadowbank gave significantly more traction at lower speed than an indoor Siberian pine surface velodrome, however when you did slide off you certainly did not slide as far as you would for any comparable speed on an indoor track .... and the splinters were harder to remove in one piece :-(
