Although Tennessee was part of our state track championships last year, it took us a little while to get confirmation from them that they will once again join us to hand out championships for the best track riders from the volunteer state. More info about the championships over here: http://www.dicklanevelodrome.com/pages/statechampionships.html

Due to the weather we are cancelling both Youth Cycling League sessions and Monday Night FIT for tonight.
We are featured in Bicycling Magazines "Dizzy Dozen" velodromes, a story of 12 of the most colorful and unusual velodromes across the US:
They did get our distance wrong, and missed a few of our other quirks, but we're glad we got a mention!
The race flier is done and loaded up online over here: http://www.dicklanevelodrome.com/sites/default/files/13theomniumflier.pdf for Outback Bikes presents 'The Omnium'. The action will be fast on the track, spectators will be tweeting #outbackomnium and everyone will be having a great time. And once again Outback Bikes is cooking up a great ticket deal for the event, which we'll have details for in the coming weeks. Getcha popcorn ready!!
