The Velodrome Featured in Creative Loafing

http://clatl.com/atlanta/east-point-college-park/Content?oid=10785061

"The early mornings bring them to Sumner Park off Headland Drive and Lumpkin Street, right next to the famous Dick Lane Velodrome, which was developed by residents and city officials who came back inspired after visiting the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich.

At the time of its construction in 1974, the Velodrome was one of only two tracks of its kind in the United States, and served as a training facility for cyclists at the 1996 Games. Currently, the track is the second steepest concrete race track in the country and hosts women's training sessions every Tuesday from 5-8:30 p.m. Howard's family frequents the Velodrome for the competition, but stays for the crashes."

A great day was had by all for our first ever Junior Track Classic. 28 juniors took to the track in their respective age devision for the afternoon of racing. And the racing was great with some hotly contested races, between the time trials and sprints and the massed start events. Thanks to all of our riders and parents who came out to race, and of course our volunteers for their efforts in the sweltering heat. Here's some podium photo's, and more on flickr: http://www.flickr.com/groups/dlv/pool/

A Night at the Bicycle Races

We made it onto NPR news!! Here's what they said about us:

It’s national Bike to Work Week, and despite its reputation as a car town, Atlanta is actually a popular destination for pro-cyclists, since it’s home to one of a handful of bicycle racetracks in the country.

Kate Sweeney went to the races at East Point’s Dick Lane Velodrome on a recent Saturday, to find out what makes the place so exciting for cyclists and bike-civilians alike.
