Just wanted to let everybody know that we had a theft from a vehicle last night during our Wednesday night racing. A broken window and a missing purse was the result of the break-in. Just want to let folks know to please be aware of any valuables that are in your car, and if at all possible, please do not leave them in there. Secondly, we've swept up the glass as best we could, but please be aware of any residual glass that may be in the area. The break-in occurred by the light pole on the velodrome side of the carpark, so definitely don't ride your bike through that area, and carry it even if your walking through there. We are looking into our security options to try to prevent this from happening again.
The Dick Lane Velodrome would like to welcome Zipp Speed Weaponry to our growing list of great supporters and sponsors. As part of the support from Zipp for this year, they have donated a bunch of prizes and will also be donating a set of Zipp wheels that we will be silent auctioning in the lead-up to our third and final Pro Race Series event of the year, when Thomsen, LTD. presents 'The Madison'. We thank Zipp in advance for their most generous support and look forward to a great relationship for the future. Click below to find out more about them and their products:

I big thank you goes out to all of our volunteers, racers, sponsors and spectators for making Outback Bikes presents 'The Omnium' a great event. Who'd have thought that we would have ended in a 3-way tie for the victory, but some great riding by all those involved made it a great weekend of racing.
