Definitely looking like Summer has arrived at Hellyer Park Velodrome's last of the Get Ready For Summer series.

Now time to get ready for Hellyer's Testarossa Velodrome Challenge (formerly known as the American Velodrome Challenge) which is right around the corner:  June 10th to 12th!

It’s gonna be a great weekend of racing and I’m planning on being there.

Judging from the field size, it looks like Hellyer Park Velodrome's Friday Night Races are really showing up strong.

I had to work so I wasn’t able to get up there and get one of their awesome new posters but I’m still gonna try to make it up for some racing one of these days!

Prints of this gorgeous poster will be on sale at the races tomorrow at Hellyer Park Velodrome.  You’d better get there early if you want to grab one because there’s just a very limited run of 25 available.

I love it and I’m actually thinking about making the trip from LA to San Jose just to get one.  Ha ha!

Hellyer: The "Other" Bicycle Racing on NBC



NBC Bay Area is running a slideshow on their website about Hellyer Park Velodrome, track racing and its growing populartiy with urban fixed riders (the guys from SJFixed get a good feature).

It’s a pretty cool photo essay and worth checking out even if the captions are written for total newbs. I hope this major media coverage helps to bring more people out to the velodrome. Like Felipe Buitrago (pictured) who was riding fixed as a messenger for years before getting into track racing, maybe they’ll see how easy it is to get started (and become addicted).

See the slideshow at NBC Bay Area.

Hanan’s HotLinks are now available beyond Hellyer's infield.

What are they?  Earrings, pins, whatever you want them to be!
