New Event Coming Up!

Thought i'd share this for those interested. Sounds fun. "I'm very excited to announce that we will once again hold track classes at the Huntsville Speedway/Velodrome. There will be three classes, starting at 6 p.m. and concluding at 8 p.m. The dates will be July 24, July 31, and Aug. 7. These classes are for any cyclist who wants to try something new and have some competitive fun. We are also aiming to prepare folks for the upcoming Alabama State Track Championships, which will be held at the Dick Lane Velodrome in East Point, GA, on Aug. 11. The events we will do at the speedway will be like those that will be part of the championships at DLV, including scratch and point races, match sprints, individual pursuit, team pursuit, and team sprint. There's no license required, but a donation to offset the cost of the speedway would be appreciated. Bring your road bikes and if you have a track bike bring that too. If you are interested in purchasing a track bike the local shops can set you up. I will be around the SCRD Rocket City Omnium this week- end to spread the word, and answer any questions you might have about these classes. While these are classes, we will indeed race, and keep results, including an omnium across all three classes. You don't have to attend every class but certainly want to see a good turnout for the first night so please put it on your calendar. The speedway is on Hegia Burrow Road, which is off of Hobbs Island Road near Ditto Landing"
