CMCW - TRACK DAY ON THE NATIONAL VELODROME
Some riding at the Pruszkow Velodrome during the Cycle Messenger World Championships in Warsaw last week.
La Ocho is dead. Long live La Ocho!
Tropical Storm Hermine wreaked havoc across Guatemala over the weekend and early this week, causing landslides and floods and creating a national state of emergency. But even Mother Nature can’t stop the toughest cyclists on Earth for the Cycle Messenger World Championships.
La Ocho, the figure-8 dirt velodrome built in Panajachel for CMWC was partially destroyed during the storms. So in order to keep the race going, La Ocho 2 was created. Still a figure-8 but this one is flat with painted lines outlining the track.
Found on TOLA.
Speaking of CMCW, one of the last remaining chances to win airfare to Guatemala is about a week and a half away when the VeloCity Tour hits the Bay Area — more specifically, Hellyer Velodrome. I just checked the program and it looks like it’s gonna be an awesome event. Check the details here.
