We are going to have to cancel our Youth Cycling League for tonight. The rain is moving out slower than expected and we don't think the track will be dry in time for this evening's sessions. Please don't forget about Saturday's events that are welcome and free to all of our YCL riders! See you then!
in light of the bad storms already moving over the track and a solid mass of green stretching way back into Alabama we are going to cancel Sprint Night for tonight.
Just wanted to send out a reminder about our Women's & Juniors Velodrome Challenge this Saturday. This will be a great day to get in some extra racing for our regular participants and we'll have a special Women's D category for all of our newcomers. So I hope to see a lot of folks out for a great afternoon of racing. We'll have some light concessions & snacks available from the Mission-Source Juniors team as well so if you want to come out and spectate that would be awesome as well.
All details and the flyer can be found: http://www.dicklanevelodrome.com/pages/juniorwomenschallenge.html
There will be no Youth Cycling or Monday Night Trainjng Tonight in observation of Memorial Day.
Well, it was a good run of dry weather, but unfortunately we are going to have to cancel the remainder of our YCL sessions this evening as well as cancel the Monday Night Training this evening.
Flyer is now up for the Jr. & Women's Challenge.
This will be different than our event last year since the Junior State Champs races are now combined with State Champs in August.
We have done away with Women's age graded races and will have just regular category racing, A-Cs and Ds.
New this year, we are also adding a Swap & Shop to our Pro Race Series Events. This is open to shops and individual sellers.
Shops space 10Wx10D: $50
Individuals space 5Wx5D: $25
You will need to bring your own table/chair/blanket/salesperson/tent and methods for accepting payments. DLV cannot make change or accept credit cards for you.
If you are interested please email [email protected]
Spaces are limited and reserved on a first come first serve basis. Payment required upfront to reserve your spot.
Collegiate and High School Track Cups Dates have been announced for Saturday August 22nd, 2015.
The flyer will be posted as soon as we have it, but the date is firm so you can go ahead and get your funding requests submitted to your respective schools.
It will follow a similar format to last year.
Seeing as the track is already wet and there is a big mass of rain moving in, we unfortunately are going to cancel our programming for the evening. Next week is looking much drier so cross your fingers.
Attention all Juniors! USAC Regional Track Camp Opportunity!
The event will be held June 7th – 11that the Velo Sports Center in Carson, CA
Benefits of attending the camp.
1. The kids that attend the camp will become familiar and comfortable with the 250 meter indoor track, the only one in the U.S.
2. The kids that attend the camp will be put on the radar with USACycling for the future – Jr. Worlds and other international racing.
3. The kids will be able to meet other junior trackies from across the U.S. – they will be able to develop friendships, could develop pursuit or team sprint teams for Jr. National and gain additional race experience.
4. And have fun!
In addition to great coaching from Suzie Goodwin, BrianAbers & Andy Sparks; Sarah Hammer will be present to motivate and inspire the young athletes. We will also offer Nick Fischer, a dietitian, who will be cooking and instructing the juniors on how to prepare meals that offer the nutritional power that an athlete’s body requires.

I hope to see your juniors at the camp.
Have a good day,
USAC Track Camp Manager
Would you be willing to set-up your spare guest bedroom for a couple of nights for some of our visiting Keirin racers? They just need a quiet comfortable place to rest their head and access to a bathroom and a fridge. They will be responsible for providing their own food and transportation. Host housing makes the cycling world go round at the Elite levels and it's a great way to get to know some of the upcoming riders before they go on to bigger and better things. Please email [email protected] if you are interested.
April showers might bring may flowers but it certainly keeps the bikes off the track.
Reminder: Beginners Certification Classes This Saturday and Sunday 11th-12th. This is our final spring weekend class (next class is on Thursday's weekly in May). Read more about the classes, what you need to know/bring and the class schedule here: http://www.dicklanevelodrome.com/pages/beginnerprogram.html
There was a brief rain shower that just passed over the track, don't think it will dry up before next wave moves through. Cancelling, training for the evening. Sorry and we'll try again next week.
