Revolution 5

 Introducing the teams
 Glasgow. The Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome  ...still a job to think of him as"Sir" !!
 Cat and Mouse in the Match sprint
 We could only get standing tickets between turn one and two, above the steepest banking
 The Pirate, with crinkly beard...he is getting used to it!

 The Man in Black....on the derny for the Kierin race...starting
 all on, and jockeying for position.... and the pace gradually rising until he reaches 50 kph and comes off the track with two and a half laps to go
 then it is down to them....and sometimes photographers get too close...
 and over the line to finish
Out into the cold and glad the roads were clear of snow...and a clear run for the hour and a quarter drive home.

The derny riders have always fascinated me. Are they all ex-racing men?
