Getting Started In Grasstrack

Grasstrack is a type of bike racing that today usually happens on a leveled track comprising of two straights, and two curves typically set up in a field. It is a long-established bike sport in the UK that originated in 1920. The Grasstrack season in the United Kingdom more often than not begins around the Easter festivities in springtime and goes through the summer and autumn. You can find cool raincoats here and protect yourself from the rain. A similar sport is called Long Track Racing in Europe, and has the very same structure as the British grasstrack but, has longer tracks of 1000-1200m.
