Theo Bos


For those of us limited to an urban track bike experience it’s pretty impressive learning a bit more about the movers and shakers in the world of organised track racing. Velodromes just seem palatial and futuristic (and fearsome) to a street rat like me. So when I see clips of people like the flying dutchman Theo Bos I am seriously impressed. There are a stack of youtube clips but this clip was on taken at the 06 Keirin Champs- Check this guy in the sprint and how much of a lead he gets.

This one is Theo in 06 racing Keirin racers in the circuit in Japan. He’s in the yellow jersey.

………yeah that’s pretty much like us on the sprint on the roads in Unitec (ahem…)
