Encino-style Flying 200m TT — A 200-meter solo time trial with a flying start.  All riders ride around the top of the track at a slow pace and one by one, each rider takes off from the group for one warm-up lap followed by the 200-meter effort.  Make sure to get off the track as soon you’ve finished your effort!

Keirin — An 8-lap race between 4-9 riders.  The first 5.5 laps are paced by a motorcycle or bicycle and the last 2.5 laps are all-out sprints.  Winners from each heat will advance to the final round.
