GRAND PRIZE FOR THE NJS KEIRIN TOURNAMENT 

Check it out!  City Grounds is hooking up a huge prize pack for the winner of the Japanese Keirin tournament at the NJS Bike Show this Sunday at Encino Velodrome.

Here’s the track program for Sunday.  It will be split into two parts:

NJS TRACK SESH PART I ($5) — Group warm-up, motorpaced paceline, Encino-style Flying 200m TT’s.

NJS TRACK SESH PART II ($5) — NJS Keirn Tournament, Non-NJS Keirin tournament, Women’s Keirin Tournament, Riser Bar Chariot Races.

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.

Chariot Race — A one-lap sprint between 2-4 riders from a standing start.  The chariot races on Sunday will be open to bikes with risers, or flat bars ONLY.
