Carson velodrome/UCI track racing

Last night a few of us rode down to Carson for the UCI worlds that comes to L.A every January. After stopping off in Compton for tacos and beer in the park (the true sign of an athlete) we got to Carson and set up at turn 4. It's always a lot of fun to watch the track racing, to be able to sit only a few feet from the action, and only a few seats away from riders like Shane Kelley who I have been watching race since I was a kid. Australia cleaned up on a number of races, and Sunderland took a track record in the kilo. Then people looked in disgust on as I sat through my own country's (and many others) national anthems...
