Giro d'Italia delle Piste

Tuesday night I went to see my first track racing since arriving in Italy. The event was part of a series of track events underway around Italy named the "Giro d'Italia delle Piste".

Being at an evening track event reminded me of the fun evenings at Trexlertown with the Bedminster Flyers . The track, located in nearby Pescantina, is 340 meters long, cement based, with very steep ends and slightly sloping centers. As always, the racing was intense with the highlight of the evening seeing World Champion Vera Carrara win the women's point race.
One big difference between Pescantina and Trexlertown was having risotto rather than a hot dog!
