Fourth Tuesday – Sprint Night
Open to all categories! On this night we’ll do a 200m time trial to seed everybody before moving into some group sprints amongst riders of a similar speed. Top 18 will “qualify” for 2 or 3-up sprints while the rest will race in larger groups of up to 5 or 6 people.
1: Selected last Tuesday’s of the month are used to hold our Working Man’s Two Day.
2: The Track Records page under Results has DLV Lap Records. The Dick Lane Velodrome was build as a 5 laps to a mile track and predates UCI velodrome meter distances; therefore, it’s 323.4 meter measurement makes it unique. Unfortunately, this creates odd starting places for metric distance events. It is very difficult to officiate a timed race where the starting location is different then the finish location. Also, racers not starting in the middle of a straight away is awkward and not like other velodromes. The most logical answer is to use laps instead of meters. With the current belief that the DLV is 6% slower then the velodromes in Colorado Springs and Los Angeles it is very easy to estimate your metric distance time by the DLV lap time. Each year the velodrome offers a record day where racers can attempt a metric distance or hour record.
