Chariot Races at Hellyer Velodrome, San Jose, CA
This race is a standing start. The guys behind are actually pushing the riders into their starts. Unfortunately, Gio, the holder on the left got a little overzealous and pushed Alicia right into Jenny. Fortunately, these ladies are calm and experienced and they just bumped and rode on.
The competition amongst the holders is almost as fierce as the riders.
