Beginner Vs Amateur Vs Olympic Champion | How Fast Are Pro Track Cyclists?

Riding the boards of a velodrome is a cycling experience different to any other. Fixed gear bikes, steep bankings and incredible speeds in close proximity to one another make track races some of the most exciting bike races to watch. But just how fast are Olympic trackies compared to us mere mortals?
