Weekly Challenge 3: Circular Motion

On a certain rough horizontal circular track of Radius R having a constant coefficient of friction, the maximum attainable speed for a cyclist is vo. A cyclist begins to ride on this track in such a manner as to attain the maximum possible speed in shortest possible time. What will be ratio of his initial tangential acceleration to his tangential acceleration at an instant when he  attains a speed of vo
