That looks nuts! I'm guessing there must be plenty of stacks.

Cheers for commenting.

There is a bit of pushing and shoving with the U16, but at senior level it gets rather physical.
More people falling off than I would have expected too.

Now that takes me back. Must be 40 years since I saw any cycle speedway. Always exciting. Nice shots, Mark.


Age is a state of mind, and I don't.

Thanks

There must be a track near you ;), I was a little surprised at the distace some had travelled to take part and how wide spread the sport is.

whiteflyer hope you don't mind me posting pictures in your thread.:)

I watched the Findon Skid Kids today selecting riders for the World Championships coming up in the UK.

I used the 18-55 kit lens and 75-300 I took many more but only so much space.
