Also check my preview of Encino Velodrome’s Attack Of The Track People for more track racing action going down this weekend.
The second installment in Dick Lane Velodrome’s Pro Race Series is going down this weekend. Everything starts out with the “Need For Speed” sprint tournament on Friday evening. Then on Saturday, “The Omnium”.
Judging by DLV’s season so far, you can expect to see a lot of action there this weekend. T-shirts with the above print will also be available for sale!
For more information check the full schedule of events.
A few scans from Dick Lane Velodrome’s very first race day program way back in 1975!
This is from DLV’s grand opening event called Meet Of Champions on March 23rd, just over 35 years ago. The program includes velodrome info, race outlines, racer bios (one of them being a young Roger Young of LA Velodrome), a bunch of totally 70’s ads and even a blank page for autographs. All sponsored by Pepsi-Cola. So rad!
It’s really a great piece of track racing history. Download the full program here.
Found on DLV’s new History Page.
And for setting a new 200m track record! Amazingly, the record will be held jointly with Andy Lakotash who tied Espinosa’s 11.03s 200m time on the same day.
