    In a word, all I can truly say about the place is that it is FAST.  Really fast.  Crazy fast.  What makes it stand apart from other locations, for me, is that there is little to no effort needed to glide around the track.  In other words, you don’t fatigue as quickly which allows you to train for longer periods of time.
