Track Racing at Ed Rudolph Velodrome


News

4/28/17 - The 2017 race calendar is up! We're merely two weeks away from Opening Night and so much is on the horizon. Monday and Tuesday night clinics are already underway, Kevin Perez's upgrade clinic is next Saturday, May 6th, and our swap meet and number pickup is next Monday, May 8th. If you're interested in upgrading and learning more about track racing, do not miss out on Kevin's clinic! Also, information on the 2017 Youth Cycling League is posted which includes training (Wed) and racing (Fri) throughout the summer for our younger riders.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Intro to Track Racing Clinic at Rapha and the Women's clinic, we're looking forward to seeing your faces at the track this summer!


3/22/17 - The 2017 season is right around the corner! We hope you're as excited as we are about another year of racing at the Ed Rudolph Velodrome. As you may notice, we're in the process of updating our website to hopefully be a bit more user friendly. Second, we are finalizing our 2017 sponsors for this year and will then soon have a final calendar. This year we are also going to do a full season racing calendar, which will identify the specific races for each night in addition to the nightly theme. 

Notably, for 2017 USAC has introduced many rule changes including the introduction of a category 5 for women. In light of this, and feedback from past seasons, we are again streamlining the upgrade process (more to follow). Men will continue to have separate cat 5 nights.  New cat 5 women will race with the cat 4 women in a combined cat 4/5 field, however the process to upgrade will be identical for both men and women. We are working out the final details of this but believe our new procedure will give racers more options and ease the upgrade process, specifically for the category 5 men.
