WOW!!
 
Fantastic Neil.. I'm sure we can get a team of timers/observers together.
 
The only velodrome BHPC have booked this year is Scunthorpe I think - maybe that would give an opportunity (either early in the day or after the normal BHPC races?)

Reading is easily accessible and if not pre booked can be used for a few quid for a couple of hours. Had wasp round it a few times. Not too bumpy (been on worse) and good for testing.

Remember as a kid there being a test track at the ford research centre in Essex (dunton) that had banking a long straights. Was fun in transit van 😄

Great news.

Is the new bike called Ristretto by any chance?

Best peddling wishes to you.

As well as going for the UK record, would an extra 400 metres earn warrant a BHPC HR record?.

What you mean you won't have to slice skin and bleed everywhere?  Doesn't sound like you Neil, I thought you enjoyed the pain, suffering and picking the scabs later!
