If you were at Derby you may have seen the show put on at half-time by Steve Slade, having a shot at the lap record for the Arena. Steve's fastest lap was 13.05s.

Although the coaches couldn't say if this was a record for Derby, Steve was only 1.45s outside the official British record for the flying 500m held by Chris Hoy:
Unpaced Flying Start 500m
13-May-2007  Chris Hoy      La Paz, BOLIVIA  24.758s
19-Aug-2017  Steve Slade  Derby, UK            26.21s
Steve's times were recorded by our timing system and the results are here:

[PS: Lap 5 + 6 = 26.21s]

And if my geography is correct Derby is a LOT closer to sea level than La Paz, so I reckon our Slasher is a lot closer than at first it looks!
Ian, not so ex racer but still of dubious capability

Does this not mean that he now has the Unpaced Flying Start 1,000m, currently held at Derby?

Quite right: 53.34s vs 57.412s for the British record (and 56.303s for the world record, although that could be standing start).

Just spotted the mini-write-up that the Derby Telegraph did on August's indoor velodrome antics....

Hi all,

After quite a while, I've finally got my footage from the days events together. Just the on-bike footage from my handbike though. Plus, you all get to see what it's like to rollover on a handbike. Possibly quite similar to that of a kind fellow who kindly decided not to run me over when I blocked his path on my side!
