Mansker sets track record at 2011 Fixed Gear Classic

From Project London’s Facebook page comes a link to this video of highlights from the Fixed Gear Classic at the National Sports Center Velodrome in Blaine, Minnesota. The 2-minute collection of clips includes Kevin Mansker’s track-record run in the Flying 200 meter. Mansker, a two-time Savage Sprints competitor, is an avid SVVA supporter–he recently drove 1100 miles round-trip to compete in the championship event which he won. Mansker is interviewed in the video at the Fixed Gear Classic, part of the Nature Valley Bicycle Festival.

“If the weather was any colder or any more windy it wouldn’t have happened,” said Mansker who set the new track record at 10.50 seconds.

Project London is an elite track cycling team with the ultimate goal of competing in the 2012 London Olympic Games.
