This year's opening round for the WeFXD Ultraman Uphill Sprints is definitely one of the craziest, most intense rounds we have had in the history of the series. Over 500 in attendance, 104 registered racers, 8 qualifying heats, one neck-to-neck finale. Round one was stark raving mad, one night could not handle all the insanity.
Alleycats, drag races, urban criteriums, uphill races. These are competitions that are usually organized to cater to the re-emergence of the fixed-gear culture. Rarely do we see track bikes running a proper track where cyclists can ride and race safely without obstructions, vehicles, and potholes. But once every blue moon, we also get a chance to ride the only cycling track in the Philippines: the Amoranto Velodrome.
