Velodrome drills for track sprinters
In pairs, motor paced entry, riders in line, second rider tries to pass lead rider before finish line (200m) - emphasis - high speed accelerations
Motorbike accelerates at every corner for two laps
Motorbike at 35km/h drops sharply into lane at 200m from top of bank, accelerates hard and keeps accelerating for 200m
Motorbike starts at ~35km/h in the lane, gradually increases pace for specified number of laps. Emphasis on legspeed
Rider rides a flying 200 line (entry)
Rider follows motorcycle for the windup, the motorbike rides an entry line but stays above the lane and the rider dives under just before the 200m line and rides the effort unassisted.
Various distances - emphasis on strength
in pairs, one rider ~7m ahead (held) of gate, one in gate. Gate started rider tries to catch held start rider
various distances, from a rolling start (generally 10km/h)
In pairs or more, chasing the lead rider. Lead rider crosses pursuit line and accelerates, each rider starts to accelerate at the pursuit line, NOT reacting to the rider in front
Entry in a line, team sprint formation, riders pull off after either 1/2 or full lap aka a team sprint with an entry instead of a standing start
Motorbike rides on blue line at low speed (30-35km/h), rider dives under bike and accelerates, rides for variable distance depending on drill.
Rider follows entry line on motorbike, bike accelerates hard off the bank, rider must give space and then overtake the motorbike
Rider follows motorbike on blue line, at ~80m before finish line mbike jumps from 35-65km/h, stays on blue line, rider should catch mbike by about 150m, rider then recovers behind bike for ~100m, rider then dives under bike into lane at 20-30m before 200m line and sprints 200.
In pairs (usually) - following rider rides 2-3m behind and 1m above the leader. The leader controls the position on the track, the follower determines the speed.
In pairs (usually) the following rider sits some 2-3m behind the leader while the leader laps on the blue line. For the first lap the follower rides 1m above, for the second lap, 1m below and for the third lap the follower can duck and dive. The leader must watch the follower all the time.
