Racing Weekly

Every Friday from April until September the velodrome is host to our Friday Night Racing series. These fun, competitive races feature our newer riders and grass-roots racers as they gain skill and experience on the Velodrome. Don't let the above sentence fool you, these races are exciting!

 

Structured as a development series, races are varied from week to week to allow the riders broad experience with all in velodrome racing. As new racers gain sufficient skill, fitness, and experience, they may be upgraded to race at TNR, while others will enjoy continuing to race at FNR with no intention of upgrading.

Want to see how the season is going? Check out FNR race results and standings on the Race Results page.

Advanced track racers, please check out TNR. Women+ racers please also see our Women's Racing page.

Want to start racing? Completing our Introductory Class is the first step.
