The group started by learning to ride a fixed gear bike. Fixed gear means that always when bike goes forward also the pedals are rotating forward. For that reason the bikes doesn't have a brakes, you slow down by pedaling slower. After few try outs we got to go up on the velodrome. Well, ofcourse over there we started practicing on the flat part. That was good place to learn to communicate with other while passing. After that we moved on the beginning of the veldrome. Still almost a flat, only thing what changed was the color of the floor, but I was scared as hell to get up there.
Before riding at the velodrome I were 2 hours on BMX track. Joined Matt Cameron on gate practice with timing system. That was awesome. Then hit the first jump few times with full speed. What a day!!
