Cycling Inside 2011: Lviv Velodrome Jan 26, 2011

Arty velodrome videos will never get old. Just look at the patina on those boards!

“Lviv velodrome is the only indoor cycling track in Ukraine, and its banks are among the steepest (or coolest) in Europe. European Track Cycling Championships could be held here, but the velodrome is built with columns that hold the roof and they obscure part of the track for cyclists, so this jeopardizes their safety. For certain reasons these columns are wrapped with mattresses for padding in case of accident, just like ski lift consoles at the ski resorts, and you can see traces of dried blood of fixie riders smashed against the padding. (Lviv mattresses are so severe that kill the cyclists on the banks).”

God, I hate the Klaxons though!
