Yes, that is a week before school starts, but you’re going to race anyway! It is a full day of racing with all types of events: time trials, team pursuits, match sprints, mass-start races. You can do them all, or you can pick and choose. Your entry fees will be paid by the team, and you can rent a bike for $5 for the day if you need one.
What, you’ve never ridden a velodrome before? I plan to ask for a short track lesson for those new to velodromes before racing starts, so we can get more racers out. Don’t be scared off. Devin and I raced track for the first time 2 years ago at Matt Hatt’s insistence… you won’t believe how much fun it is!
What do I need from you? I need to know:
1) if you plan to race
2) if you’ll be carpooling with the team
3) if you’ll need to rent a bike (tell me your road bike size)
4) if you want a short track class beforehand
If you want to race, we need you to fill out a new AOR for this year – we’ll get this sorted out soon.
