Heartrate while on track?

Any of you track junkies ever monitor your heartrate while on track? I tried it today while riding a supermoto practice day. When I'm pushing hard, I can only do about 5-6 laps before I have to back down, so I figured my HR was kinda high. I was wearing my chest strap, with the readout watch strapped onto the handlebar pad so I could glance at it on the straights. results we're actually higher than I expected. 170+ bpm when I was pushing. 160+ when maintaining a fast, but comfortable pace. No wonder why I'm getting tired!

the highest I saw was 173, which is about 91% of my max HR.
160-165 is my anaerobic threshold.

Interesting...I might have to try this tomorrow at New Castle, and maybe on the road courses too. I don't think my HR gets too high roadracing, but supermoto is a bit more of a workout.

I usually wear one while mountain biking but I also tried it while downhilling too. Even though there is not much pedaling my HR was above 170 many times. Never tried it on my motorcycle for racing but I bet it would be similar.

I believe the movie Faster touches on heart rate, on the same lap, same track, they compared Rossi with Biaggi (I think). Biaggi's heart was racing furiously, while Rossi was calm as a kitten. Guess who is faster...

I'm Mr. Ice on the track. Then again I am putt putting around like a grandma.

Actually, I remember reading that the pro-racers ride bicycles to get their heart rate up so they can get use to thinking while their hearts are pounding out of their chests. Actually it was on science channel, The Art of Going Fast on Two Wheels.

I don't know about my heart rate, but I'm breathing pretty hard in the turns and my back is usually screaming by the end of each session.

Rossi's was 125, Biaggi 175.

they kind of played this fact up in the movie to go along with the whole hero vs villian rivalry thing. yes, Rossi was the better rider, and seemed to ride with a lot left in reserve. but I wish they would have talked about their overall fitness levels, including resting heartrates, instead of just trying to make a sensational point.

Just because someone's HR is higher doesn't necessarily mean they are working harder, though a 50 beat difference is pretty big. I seriously doubt Rossi's HR was 125 in a race situation, I think they used that figure to make the gap appear larger than it is if at all.

they could also have a huge difference in their resting heartrate. ave. for a male is 72 bpm. so say Max is average (he's probably not, but just for argument sake). and on the other hand, Rossi could be some kind of genetic freak with a huge heart (think Lance Armstrong, Secretariat, etc) and a resting HR around 30 bpm. now the delta in their active HR isn't so impressive.

then again, if Rossi is normal, and his on track HR really is 125.... pretty amazing.

So at BHF on the 26th, for the last 2 sessions of the day i put on the HR mointer.

both sessions i saw 195 max, and 160 avg.

now i never the whole time felt like i was over working my self, or anything, i actually felt calm, i was sweating my ass off trying to run with Thorny and SuperDave. but i never really felt overworked.

If I Can figure out how to work the one I have, I am going to try this at the Putnam weekend in October. I figure since this is a track I have never been to before, it would be a good starting line for me to see how I manage myself between Saturday morning and Sunday late afternoon.

I was with Mopar the day he brought his to the track. When he told me 190, I didn't beleive him. He did not look like someone who's heartrate hit 190+ per minute when he exited the track.
