Di'ya see this:

It's a trailer for a program about Keirin in Japan, a more gladiatorial sport than at the Olympics. For those who don't know what keirin is, it is endurance racing on retro bikes in purpose-built velodromes in Japan.

Great to see the BBC do something really interesting. One must admire the discipline and high professional standards of the Japanese. But I can't imagine NASCAR, one of the most strictly managed sporting regimes in the world, imposing such a monitored hall regime, never mind the blazers at the UCI getting away with it.

Missed the beginning first time round so thanks for the link. Nice to see the steel bikes in action.
