Racing at the first big omnium of the season, the
Kautsky Memorial, Cyclisme racers found themselves in
total amazement immediately. Like gladiators arriving
in the greatest coliseum of them all, we humbly took
our place on the infield.
With rollers stations set up under our blue pop-up
tent, we were ready to brace ourselves for the cruel
lesson about to be revealed by the Gentle Lovers.
