DC: 140 on the front straight (indicated). Only for a second before nailing the brakes.

Badjuju: Errr....well, ok, so I was passing on the inside and outside, but only because passing on the outside only was impossible unless I went into the dirt. Slower riders should have been staying off line, but when they were on the line what do you do? I expected to get chastised by the organizers (or get a B sticker), but the instructors on the track themselves would point me around riders and give me the 'go' signals. (I wasn't the only one passing on either side.) In person it didn't seem so extreme, but the video makes the speed differentials seem a little absurd and dangerous. In my defense, though, it still was my first track experience on a bike, but in hindsight I should have gone up a level.
