Weekly Racing

Here is the breakdown of our normal weekly racing activities. Entry fees for the events are $10 for all of our Tuesday night racing and $15 for our Wednesday night racing. Wednesday nights racing will include one prize for one race per category for the winner of the chosen race. All of our weekly race nights kick off at 7pm with an organised warm-up paceline of 20laps per category. Racing will begin once all of the warm-ups are completed(roughly 7:30pm). Weekly racing is free to watch, so bring your friends and family down to enjoy the racing. Here's what it all looks like:

Note that there are usually two fifth Tuesdays during our season and we will be running races on those days. The fifth Tuesday's will be the first day of our two day Working Man's Two Day. More info on that here: http://www.dicklanevelodrome.com/pages/workingmansmadison.html

Wednesday Night Racing

presented by Andy Bailie, Re/Max Metro Atlanta
Our Wednesday night racing is our normal categorized racing for A, B and C categories. We will be running a 4 week rotation of races and have a great variety of races throughout the scheduling. The races will rotate constantly throughout the race season. New for 2013 is that we will be running combined categories unless we hit a maximum number of participants per category. We will split the B category and have some riders race with the C's and some with the B's. This will give folks the opportunity to race with larger fields and make the racing more competitive. Field will be split into 3 groups if either of the fields are over 20 riders. Here is what each night will look like:
