Pro Race Series

Saturday May 9th 2015 Hagen-KenBikeLaw present The Keirin

The Keirin

Back for 2015 is Dick Lane Velodrome's Pro Race Series(PRS). These events will continue the PRS tradition, bringing to the fore-front the best of the best riders that the US has to offer. They'll be pushing the envelope of speed and danger in both hard charging sprint events and grueling endurance races. Experience the thrill of the two-man Madison, comparable to tag-team on bike, where teammates exchange postions into the action at 40 mph using the dangerous Madison hand sling. Catch the fast-paced Keirin, an Olympic event where riders are paced up to maximum speed with a Derny bicycle (a motorized bicycle) until the final lap and a half when they tear up the track to the finish. The Omnium will also be a featured event. Riders will compete throughout the evening in a series of different events to be claimed DLV's best all rounder. Also back again in 2015 will be the Velodrome Cup, an event styled after the "International Omnium" event held at the 2012 Olympic Games.

Enjoy a great night out with the family as you get up close and personal with cycling's top athletes!
