Junior Track Championships
Saturday May 31st, 2014
Coming back for 2014 and the fifth time that we've ever done it, we'll be hosting a Junior Track Championships. This race day will follow a format with some similarities to the Junior National Championship events for each division of Juniors. State Championships will be awarded for Georgia Omnium Champions, although the event will be open to all riders from any state.
Important Notes About The Event
1. This will be a USA Cycling sanctioned event. All competitors will need to either have a USA Cycling license, or purchase a one day license for $10.
2. Field limits are:
10-12/13-14 – 14 Riders
15-16/17-18 – 18 Riders
In the event we exceed the maximum amount of riders in a field, the omnium standings will determine riders who will compete in the mass start events for the 17-18 and 15-16 aged categories. 10-12 and 13-14 races will be split into 2 groups and race 2 scratch races with the top 14 advancing to race the points race.
3. All riders competing must have ridden previously at the Dick Lane Velodrome or another velodrome, to be eligible to race. A DLV beginner’s class or a minimum of four Youth Cycling League sessions must have been completed for riders aged up to 16 years of age and a beginner’s class must have been completed for riders aged 17/18. Any riders with questionable equipment or riding ability will be asked not to race at the discretion of the head official. USAC rules apply.
4. Velodrome bicycles will be available for use during this event. We do have a limited supply of bicycles, in the case that we run out of bicycles, riders will be asked to share their bicycles with another rider in order for everyone to get the chance to ride and race. It is the responsibility of the rider to choose a bicycle that has the correct gearing for your category.
5. Georgia State Championships will be awarded for the Omnium Winners in each of the available categories. State champions will receive medals and a jersey.
