Here are some of my favorite photos from the Los Angeles Velodrome Racing Assn.’s Winter Classic.
Here are some of my favorite photos of pain and determination from last year. Many are from Elite Track Nationals at the Home Depot Center Velodrome, where the intensity was amped up more than any other race of the season. Other photos are from Master’s States in San Diego, LAVRA and juniors races at the HDC Velodrome, and the Encino Velodrome.
One of the most thrilling races at elite track nationals was the battle between reigning champion Giddeon Massie and Michael Blatchford, who came out of retirement this year. Both are Olympians who are likely to compete in London next year. Blatchford won the race for gold.
