The 13th of April was one of the most anticipated days in the world’s mini velodrome racing calendar. The MET Fixed Adrenalin Tournament is a unique track event for fixed gear bikes. A wild ride that takes place on one of the smallest velodromes in the world. Fearless cyclists face a demanding test of mental and physical strength and technical skill…
I personally had a blast (even with a crippled back) and definitely drank to many Redbull’s. On top of that it was super cool to meet so many nice people including a brief chat with Andy from Fixed Mag and many other riders from all over Scotland, UK and Europe.
The racing action was good and the minidrome felt really nice to ride… although I think for me a bit more practice and a different bike setup would work better for next time… anyway I was so stoked to have raced and to have made it to the quarter finals, but when I saw on the big screen I was drawn up against the record holder and the overall winner Toms Alsberg of Latvia I felt my time was up. A sick day by all and I look forward to the next one!
