Years Riding: Dunno, awhile?
How you found us: DML
track riding you're using your legs alot, moving around on the bike. Calves to some extent, but if you do a LED track event or a few days in a row, you'll mostly feel it in your quads. Strength isn't really an issue but endurance is.
Your groin muscles are another point to work on. Sounds silly, but alot of times you'll be thighmastering the tank. A strong core, particularly spinal erectors will help when you start braking later and harder. Being able to brake hard and keep yourself steady with your legs and core, and your weight OFF your arms (and thus the clip-ons) is a good thing.
Cardio is a good thing too. If you're doing half-hour sessions at 90%, you want to be able to keep your heart rate low the entire time. If it's going crazy, you're more prone to mistakes.
