Just a reminder to all velodrome users that this Saturday will be our Collegiate Track Cup races and certification class.

Anyone notice the lack of fire ants on the infield of the velodrome this year? Well, courtesy of Amdro® Fire Ant Yard Treatment, they're all under control:
SEASON-LONG FIRE ANT CONTROL. SEASON-LONG PEACE OF MIND.
Made for broadcast application, this product lasts all season and a 5 lb. bag covers up 10,000 square feet. Once spread, worker fire ants from visible and hidden mounds will take it back to the queen. Once the queen eats the bait, she’ll meet her demise — and it’s curtains for the colony. This bait also prevents the formation of new mounds. You want mass destruction of fire ants? You got it.
Courtesy of John Dowd, here are time splits from all of the timed events on Saturday.
Thanks to all of our volunteers who made the event go so smoothly, mother nature for co-operating, and of course all of the riders who showed up and raced.
Due to the impending weather, we will be starting the afternoon session 1 hour earlier than planned, so the revised start time will be 3pm.

As part of our work to grow and expand our programs at the velodrome we are adding an expansion to our Youth Cycling League program with Youth Race nights to be held on the first Monday of each month. Racing will begin at 7pm on those Monday nights (after 30 minutes of U16 youth cycling session) and conclude around 8pm. Racing will be open for all Youth Cycling League eligible riders, we will categorize all of our youth into one of 3 categories, A, B or C, and we will score and track results in our website results system. We are excited for this addition to our programming and are hoping that we will be able to feature some great racing amongst all of our youth. The first race night will be this coming Monday evening, August 4th.
