The track needs you! We could use a few good WO/MEN to help out at the Velodrome Cup presented by Third Eye Software on August 27th. Set up is at 9a.m. so if you are racing you'll have time to put your feet up, cool down and also pat yourself on the back for making a different at the DLV before you snooker the competition later in the day. We need help setting up for the Need for Speed Sprints presented by Bike Law the night before as well start at 4p.m. please email [email protected] or call 404-594-1789 if you can help out. Volunteers help us to keep Turning Left at the World Famous DLV.
Our Second Annual Dick Lane Velodrome Record Day will be October 1st, 2016. Below is the sign up form for Record Day. We are doing something a little different than just having it be all Hour Record. We are also going to allow for record attempts at the distance you wish to go. These are the actual metric distances of the track and not laps as programming is currently run.
First some rules:
After you reserve your place. You will have one(1) week to send in the fee to confirm your slot. Hour Record slots will be $250 and other record attempts will be $50. If you do not confirm your spot within a week, your slot will be made available to others.
Yes. Record Attempts are age graded.
You will get only one(1) attempt at setting the record for the distance of your choice per time slot. Make sure your 6 P's (Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance) are in order for your equipment, clothing, nutrition and body. No re-rides.
You are allowed to attempt multiple distances. But you will have to pay the fee for each attempt. If you wish to have two attempts at same distance you will need to reserve two slots and pay for both. Only one attempt allowed per time slot.
No warming up on track while other's attempts are in progress. You should plan to bring a road bike, trainer or rollers to warm-up on until it is your time for the attempt. All riders will get at least 5 laps on the track to make sure they are sorted and ready to ride.
No audio equipment of any kind can be worn while on the track.
Please be on time. Missed start times will not be re-run.
If all the slots are filled for your desired attempt please put your name on the waitlist to see if slots open, or we add slots on Saturday.

still working out the bugs and rain damaged our cam
We need a few good volunteers to help out with our Pro Race Series event The Omnium on July 9th. Racers, you can still help us out, and earn rider of the year points by appointing a stand in to work for you. We need help with set-up, gate control, merchandise, bike valet and tear down. All shifts must be at least 3 hours and must be signed up for. We need to count on folks, so while we love the help at tear down, no ROY points for spontaneous sense of good will. Just adoring praise. But, helping us set up before and tear down after could be considered a shift. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. It's what makes these races happen!
2016 DLV State Championships
If an official sees lightning or rain there will be a whistle to close the track. Racers will safely slow down and come onto the apron and then the warm-up track.
We currently have a tree down near the entrance of the velodrome. The tree landed on the power poll across the road from the entrance. It is currently being removed we have back-up power for everything but the lights.
Currently the only way to enter the track is coming down the hill from the ball fields on Lexington.
The forcast calls for a 50% chance of a shower at 5:30 then clear the rest of the evening.
The track takes just under an hour to dry. We will make annuncements of the earliest the track could re-open. We will then have a 15 minute warm-up period.
Any questions please email: [email protected]
