Hard harder exhaustion
Race to be, be racy
Velodrome desire round the oval
A chase, spirit sprint rubber pitched to the floor.
Ramp up and down single cog spinning
Weighted legs, burst lungs, fixed on time
Ahead, behind, the last push to line.
A simple track, bike and no hills
Headwinds your own making and draft
A subtle change detected and off
Pound push, pull, pick the line
Pedal feet, head, shoulders, legs
It takes it all to fly and fly alone
Win or loose, an oval all desire to race.
