Bike Porn at Keiren Race: Bright Colors and Big Guns

6/22/11 #223

These photos are from the flick photostream of y.hayama, taken on a trip to the Hakodate Keirin Velodrome located in Hakodate (City), Oshima (Subprefecture), Hokkaido (Prefecture), Japan.

This article gives an overview of Keirin racing at Hakodate. This is a Chicago bike tourist's report on the races.

The monocolored outfits look much better IMO than the multicolored, frenzied NASCAR-sticker-crazed kits the European bike teams are wearing.
