New Tuesday Racing Category

We are adding a new category to our Tuesday massed start racing night. The new category will be a Restricted Gear category and will be open for all riders in category C and above. The category will have gear restrictions for B and A riders and they will be as such:
A Riders: 79" (47x16 or 50x17)
B Riders: 84" (47x15 or 50x16)
C Riders: Open gearing

We will make any necessary gearing adjustments based on need as we get a few race nights under our belt. So the Tuesday massed start racing categories will look like this:
D/Women C
Masters/Women B and A
Restricted Gear

A Category Masters will continue to be eligible to race in the masters category, with a reduced gear restriction down to 79"

Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation Grants $5,000 For Our Youth Cycling League

The EPVA is proud to announce that we have been granted $5,000 from the Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation(AFYF) to help support our Youth Cycling League program. The support from the AFYF will allow us to keep up with some the costs of operating the program and purchase replacement equipment and clothing for our kids, to keep them riding and enjoying their track cycling. The AFYF has been great supporter of the EPVA over the years(including granting directly to our youth program in 2013, 2012, 2011, 2007 and 2006) and it's great for us to be able to work with them again this year. Huge thanks to the folks over at The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation and the AFYF, and we're sure that their support will enable us to continue to grow the program throughout the year.
