Just a friendly reminder to all of our racers for this weekends Pro Race Series events, PLEASE READ THE RACE FLIER!!

Flier is published on the Pro Race Series page and can be linked to directly by clicking here.
We are still looking for a couple of volunteers to help out this coming Saturday for Outback Bikes presents 'The Omnium'. We have a variety of jobs that we need some help with, so if you are willing, able and available, please let us know and we'll put you to work!
Email us, firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you can help.
We were recently featured in the hard copy of Atlanta Magazine, which as picture form the Keirin and short story about us. The story has subsequently made it onto Atlanta Magazine's website, and you can read all about it here:
In addition to the lack of Bicycle Little League on Monday, advanced training will also be cancelled due to the holiday.
Due to the holiday weekend we won't be holding our Bicycle Little League program on Monday, 7/5. We'll resume the program as per usual next Thursday.
Weather is looking good here at the velodrome at the moment for tonights Day 2 of the Working Mans Madison. Keep an eye on twitter for more info as we get closer to race time.
With the increased popularity of our Bicycle Little League program putting somewhat of a strain on our equipment stores, a short discussion with the folks at Shimano North America had some new spd clipless pedals and cleats in the mail. A huge thanks to Shimano from the EPVA and our Bicycle Little League kids and program for their generous support in keeping our kids feet on the pedals, literally and metaphorically!
With Day 1 of the Working Mans Madison in the books, we're looking forward to tonights action to finish off the 2 days of racing. We'll have the Working Mans Madison T-Shirts available for sale tonight for $15ea. Supply is VERY limited and will be first come first serve once registration opens. Huge thanks to SfattoClothing.com for getting them printed for us. Check out the design:
We've got notes about next weeks Working Man's Madison posted on the Working Man's Madison page here: http://www.dicklanevelodrome.com/pages/workingmansmadison.html . If you have any questions or if something doesn't make any sense, drop an email to email@example.com . Be sure to get your teams set-up before sign in on Tuesday so you'll be able to score up on some points. We'd encourage the use of the forum if you don't have contact details for someone.
Just a reminder to all of our D/Beginners racing group riders that there will be no racing for you guys on Tuesday 6/29 in lieu of the Working Man's Madison. D racing will resume on Tuesday the 6th of July.
With the Working Man's Madison coming up next week: http://www.dicklanevelodrome.com/pages/workingmansmadison.html we're going to be running a madison practice session this Friday for those folks who wish to race in the madison category next week to brush up on their skills to get dialled in before the race. We have a 10 team field limit, and with that many teams on the track it'll be very important that everyone is comfortable out there amongst all the exchanges. We'll kick the session off from 7:00pm and will run 3 x 15-20 min race simulations. We'll expect the group to mostly stay together for the duration of each session.
Thanks to SBL President, Wallace McRoy for drawing our raffle winners. Drum roll please......

We'll be attempting to get in touch with the winners over the next couple of days, if you are one of the winners we'd love to hear from you.
First off, the DLV would like to thank all of the riders who came out on Sunday for our first ever Century ride. The turnout was better than we had expected and the tremendous support for the velodrome was great to see and definitely much appreciated. Thanks also to our volunteers on the day, it was a hot one and to everyone who braved the heat to help out, and huge thanks.
We know that there were several areas that could have been better in planning and implimenting the ride and that more than several people didn't have a great experience on Sunday. We do apologize to those folks who didn't have the ride meet their expectations. Please know that as part of our organizations goals, we hope to run great events that people will enjoy, and return to because of that. For next years ride we will only be moving forward with it if we will be able to gaurantee that we'll be able to run the event in a way that will provide not only a positive experience, but one that will have the riders hoping to do it again soon.
