Well I’m in the middle of one of my heaviest work weeks of the year at my “real job” so I haven’t been able to post much lately. I will be trying to catch up on everything over the weekend. I promise!

In the meantime, the Golden Saddle Grand Prix last Wednesday was nothing short of AMAZING. We had over 60 racers and almost 200 spectators at Encino Velodrome and everyone had a great time. The races were fast and exciting, the grill was serving up delicious food and there were tons of prizes going out to both racers and spectators who bought raffle tickets. The boys at Golden Saddle Cyclery really hooked it up and made this an event to remember. Their raffle alone raised nearly $1200 for the velodrome! We are all astounded at how the event turned out and want to give a huge thanks to everyone who came out to support. I will have a full race recap coming shortly plus lots of photos.

This video was the Crawl Race between all the sprinters who didn’t qualify for the tournament. They had about two minutes before they were allowed to cross the finish line and then it was a one-lap sprint for the win. Thanks to Pat Benson for filming.

If you weren’t able to make it out last Wednesday, you can still show your support by grabbing a Save The Track Bike t-shirt available in BLACK or WHITE.
