. . .they go around and around and around.   That is what track racing is all about.  Today pursuits. last night was points races and elimination races.  Tonight, scratch races, TT and some sprints.  It has been an interesting couple of days.  Not over yet, but it has been nice.    I have to be back in an hour, so I just wanted to put up something quickly today.

This is Glen O’Shea, great rider to watch.  Rides for South Australia and, at the time of writing this, was leading the Men’s Omnium.  I took this shot this afternoon.  Low shutter speed.  No idea have fast he was travelling, but it would have been fast.  I like it when you can get a shot like this and the face is in focus.  I tried to get a close up of his face towards the end, but just could get a good one of him gritting his teeth.  I will get details, if you want them, and put them in another post.

Tomorrow night Madison.  Have I mentioned how much I love the Madison.  It is one of my favourite races to photograph.  Looking forward to trying some new stuff and seeing what I come up with.
