BBQ at Encino Velodrome TONIGHT!

I’ve been developing a track racing clinic with Jared Thayn from Encino Velodrome and for the past month, every Wednesday night, we’ve been running a four-week version of the six-week course. We’ve had a great turnout with about 22 students and I want to thank all of them for coming out! It’s been a great time and I think everyone is having fun learning about different events, tactics and of course racing.

The course is basically an introduction to track racing events directed at those who’ve ridden on the velodrome before but aren’t exactly sure what they’re doing on race days. It also makes a great program just to practice racing so we have folks of all different experience levels from riders fresh out of the beginner class to Cat 2 racers from T-Town. I’ll keep you updated as to when we are starting the course again and how to register.

We focus on a different event each week and tonight is the “final exam” for our current group in the form of an international-style omnium:

-Flying 200m TT
-Scratch Race
-2km Individual Pursuit
-Points Race
-500m TT

The session will be closed to riders who haven’t been taking the Wednesday-night course so far -BUT- we’ll be having a BBQ and giving out prizes and having a good time. So come out and cheer on the riders and bring something to throw on the grill! The Valley Bikery will also be hosting a bike repair clinic on the infield so bring anything that needs fixing. The session starts at 7:30pm and will go until about 10:30pm.

Hope to see you there!
