    Today was pista turn. Zagreb had two or three pista in hystory (I think :fp), even wooden covered one :fp but tha was in K&K monarchy. Today just one and this one is dying, it is 330m, and football club want to get bulldozers there 8). First was 14 laps scratch race, and then 20 laps points race.

    Stadium enter


    North curve


    South curve


    Final sprint, scratch race


    You see how bad it is and scary too.




    Inside lane is insane :wave, there is no room for mistakes

    Does anyone had a flat on pista? I just made it, luckily (swear I used it first time this word) it was warm up session. Oh btw, I race with some Yankee dude who must be doped coz I never met sober Yankee , he is fast as hell, and does not understand a word of local, unfortenatelly he understand rules ;D about point race and it was hilarious when judges called for him, "number 108 out ;D" pure gold.
    Judges should speak on Croatian, that would be gold to see him racing 100 laps alone ;D, he is doped anyway.
    First time I see Ultegra Di2, bulky machine it is ???

    Today was city Hillbilly ;D championship, London road race candidate won on 4,7km long and some 8-9% gradient, time 12min20sec. Mine time just suck, beaten by kids, girls, overweight, even MTB, just bellow 20min, it is just for compare pro and amateur time, any pro tour guy would go under 10 min for sure. 
    Tomorrow Grand Prix again ::) 30km criterium (20 laps of 1,5km), but going with bike to start and home, all in all it should be around 110km.
    Monday pista turn, tuesday I am dead as old horse ;D.
    But I peak for 08.06. World UCI tour amateurs race in Ljubljana, 18,6km cronometro :win, of course I will not peak with junk food 8)

    Careful, if they test for jelly belly you could fail first try, and then hashish and every other drug.
    All that doesn't matter, are you allowed to go to Slovenia? ;)
