1990 Match Sprint World Championships

This is for Becca. If you ignore the fact that it is 1990 and hence the steroids are practically dripping out of these guys (especially Mr. East Germany), this is a good example of match sprinting. It's got a little bit of everything.

That was excellent. :-) "Weight training is much bigger part of sprinting" Uh yeah, it's all those bicep curls with the syringes. We couldn't figure out if all the digs about going to the gym and Rocky 6 were the announcers acknowledging how roided up the guys were or what. Now I just need to figure out the difference between a kieren and a madison.

There are some wild keirins on YouTube (just remember e before I when spelling a weird Japanese word). Very little that really show the magic that is Madison. I'll have to look elsewhere...
