This weekend at Hellyer Park Velodrome!
VeloCity Tour hits The Bay Area featuring track races for messengers and urban cyclists! Messengers will be competing for airfare to the 2010 Cycle Messenger Worlds Championships in Guatemala.
The competitions will be in an “omnium” format. The track races will be:
5 -up chariot heats — a standing start one lap race, winner goes to final, 2nd to rep round
20 lap scratch — after 20 laps the first one across the line wins
Miss and out — every lap the last rider to cross the line gets pulled from the race until we have 5 left and then there’s a 3 lap race for first through fifth
20 lap Point-a-lap — every lap a point is awarded for the leading rider to cross the line. The rider with the most points at the end wins.
Australian Pursuit — riders are spaced equally around the track and the race starts from a standing start. The objective is to pass all the people in front of you and not to get passed yourself. Once you are passed you are out of the race.
