The best looking riders in the country were probably at the Schwalbe Track Bike Criterium race at the Nocturne Series 2013.
Fortunately the riders’ performance are as impressive as their dashing jerseys. If you love high-speed cycling action, this is the race for you.
The first place winner is Wayne Crombie from East London Velo. At second place is Alessandro Bruzza from Cykeln Racing Team, and at third place, Giovanni Luigi Bocchi, also from Cykeln Racing Team.
Track bikes have one gear, no brakes and designed for maximum speed at the velodrome.
In Japan, male riders must ride on steel frame track bikes at the keirin races. Only female riders are allowed to ride on lighter carbon fibre frames.
