We'll be hosting our post-season work day to get things ready for the cross race, so pull on the work clothes and come down to give us a hand to make our place look great. Saturday October 10th 9am, till things are looking great!!
Lights have been fixed so our final week of 2009 racing is a go
Due to last weekend's rain out of Thomsen, LTD. presents 'The Madison', the conclusion of the South Eastern Women's(SEW) cycling series has been switched to our first ever cyclocross race at the velodrome, Psycho Cross on Halloween, Saturday October 31st. Updated race flier is posted : http://www.dicklanevelodrome.com/pages/psychocross.html and you can find out more info on SEW cycling here : http://sewcycling.squarespace.com .
Due to the velodrome lighting issues our Tuesday and Wednesday racing and Thursday night beginners classes are cancelled this week.
Some great video's from Lee Amlicke from Friday night's Need for Speed sprints.
After much deliberation and much to our chagrin, we have decided to cancel today and tonights track racing events. Two factors came into determining the decision, the obvious wet weather and it's lack of clearing is a major factor, but last night our lighting went out and due to the rain, we aren't able to repair the lights to be able to hold races at night. So unfortunately we will have to cancel the racing altogether.
Seth Snyder of Snyder Cycles.com recently donated a custom built 56cm frame, which was hand painted by artist and cyclist Quenton Colby for the Wheels in Motion Art Auction. It didn't sell so now's your chance to have a shot at buying it. Starting price is $500.
The Auction goes live Sunday night, 9/20 at 9pm EST and will conclude in 7 days, on Sunday 9/27 at 9pm EST
Yes it's raining. And yes it is raining really hard. At this stage we still believe that it will clear up later on this afternoon. Our plan right now is to stick with our original scheduled start time of 3pm. If it doesn't look like we'll start the afternoon program at 3, we will then make a decision to still stick with our 6pm evening start time, with a program that will be condensed with some of the afternoon races for the lower categories. If you were planning on racing at 3pm, please be here and be ready to go, if you were planning on spectating from 6pm, stick with your plan to come out and enjoy some great racing action. Please keep an eye on this space for updated info, and if you are a tweeter, please ReTweet this info to get the word out about what is happening.
Due to the awesome weather Bicycle Little League is cancelled tonight 9/17.
Due to the current state of the weather tonights Beginners Class(9/17) will be postponed until next Thursday evening(9/24).
Due to the thunderous storm coming down right now, racing is cancelled for tonight.
