Post your best times

I am trying to collect personal times to compare one track to another.
What are the records at your velodrome?
What is your personal best?
If you have ridden more than one velodrome, post both.
(example: 4K time on 250 track indoor at LA, 4K time on 333 outdoor altitude in Colorado, and 4K time on 333 outdoor at Trexlertown, PA. Then, I can help others to gauge what their times may be if they travel to LA or Colorado.)

I am very curious about times on 500 tracks and small indoor tracks at 134.

I have basically only ridden on 4 current velodromes in the US
Encino which is my home 11.2 for 200
I can't remember specifically but at Major Taylor in Indy i was maybe 11.4
at Kenosha & San Diego I couldn't even break 12
those have so little banking it felt like if i wound it up i would go flying off the track :eek:

I guess I'll have to look for a velodrome in the Philly Pa. area. I've never ridden one and would love to give it a try. When I do my local 12 miler I try to set time goals but there's traffic, pedestrians in the park loop and so the time never seems to improve. One ride gives me an old cesna landing strip that is great for a straight run sprint. Anyone know of any tracks in Philly area?
