INTRO TO TRACK RACING BEGINS MARCH 6th 

The popular six-week class returns to Encino Velodrome in one month.  This course will be six Wednesday night sessions from March 6th to April 10th and taught by yours truly.  If you’re interested in getting into track racing, check it out.

The program is perfect for novice track riders who wish to learn the rules of different track events as well as experienced racers who want to stay in top form. Each night we’ll focus on a different event or discipline. First we learn the rules and strategies of the race and then riders get on the track and give it a go. Encino Velodrome has one of most welcoming atmospheres in the track scene so if you are stoked on racing but a little bit intimidated to hit the banks, this is the place to come. A lot of advanced riders also attend the Wednesday night sessions to get some practice and sharpen their strategies and they always have good tips to share with the noobs.

Speaking of noobs, if you haven’t ridden on the track before, you MUST complete the Encino Velodrome Beginner’s Class prior to taking this course. The next class is on Saturday February 23rd at noon. This will get you certified to ride the track so do it!

So how much? Each Intro To Track Racing session is ten bucks (so bring cash) or you can pre-pay all six sessions for only fifty bucks. Space is limited so pre-paying is the ONLY way to reserve your spot in the class.  Just smack that Paypal button below (by the way, ALL the money goes straight to Encino Velodrome, a non-profit volunteer-run organization). Pre-paid riders are also invited to attend an additional Wednesday night training session for FREE on either February 27th or April 17th. That’s seven sessions for fifty bucks— what a deal!

SUMMER RACE SERIES: BRING ON THE RIVALRIES


Almost a year ago, we documented a dramatic altercation between two local teams: The Juice and Chain Gang TO. Well, the tension has never died down since that fateful Wednesday night. In fact there are a lot of team rivalries out there and I’m asking all those teams to come and settle it at Encino Velodrome during the RTBL Summer Race Series.

The prestigious and soon-to-be-legendary Team Trophy will be the only overall series award. It will be granted to the club or team that earns the most points over the course of the five-night race seres. Points will be awarded for placing well in races and participation (details HERE). The trophy is being fabricated right now by Warren Holzman at Iron Studios Ltd (thanks to Woody at GSC for hooking that up) and it will be awarded to the winning team on the last night of the Summer Race Sereis (September 7th).

So I’m challenging all teams and clubs out there to bring out your teammates and prove that you are the fastest, the strongest, the biggest and the bestest team IN THE WORLD!

CLICK HERE for more information on how points will be awarded. Don’t forget that the Summer Race Series starts on Wednesday July 6th with the H&S Time Trials Night.
