With one week of May left, it's time to turn up the action at the Velodrome! After several weeks of pre-season (aka, getting the kinks out), the MVA is about to dial in the regular racing season, bringing with it a host of exciting changes for this next week. Everything you love about the Velodrome will be back and better than ever, so head on out and watch, cheer, or race your way through summer!
All this talk about racing and starting the season has got me slightly parched. I mean, don't get me wrong, I like a good track race, but I must say the days can often carry on well into the evening, and I'm a fan who just needs a BIT more incentive to come out to the track sometimes. If only the track could offer me, a loyal fan who is definitely not the Web Admin writing in a strange disembodied first-person voice, some adult refreshments to wet my whistle.
Well thirsty "fan", let's see if we can satisfy your craving.
For the 2015 season the Marymoor Board of Directors, Program Director, Race Commitee along with the support of our local officials have decided to enforce a gear restriction for all Category 4 and 5 Men and Women. This gear restriction is going to be a 48x15, roughly an 86 inch gear, and more specifically a roll out of 22'3". Before you jump up and down in excitement I would like to fill you in on the reasons we made this decision.
For the 10th edition of the Marymoor Grand Prix we have decided to go BIG - say hello to the UCI. We are going to run a Men's and Women's Omnium, Keirin and Sprint Tournament as UCI Class 3. With the Olympics coming up quickly we should have a huge international attendance with the precious UCI points on the line.
Supplementary USAC Men's, Women's, and Masters races will be included as well. And don't forgot the original "Longest Lap" - The Marymoor Crawl will be run both of the night sessions.
More details will be announced soon, but until then SAVE THE DATE - July 24th & 25th!
