On September 29th 11-2 you can support the MVA by eating at Where ya at Matt (http://whereyaatmatt.com/) which will be located at the F5 Networks HQ on Elliot Ave, all the proceeds will go to the velodrome! This seems like the perfect pairing: Eat Great Food = Support the MVA! Thanks F5 for supporting local non-profits!
The schedule for the finale is one you DON'T want to miss (http://velodrome.org/mva/content/friday-night-schedule-0).

It's that time of year again when the crazies (read: Cyclocrossers) come out to play on the weekends and make a big mess of everything! Ok, sarcasm aside, this is one of the most entertaining events you can attend all Summer long, and it's coming to Marymoor this weekend.

Plus, you get to hang out with myself and the illustrious Matti Herz!
Masters Nationals came to a close this past Sunday, and it was a long week filled with great successes and awesome racing action. Many of those awesome victories went to local Washington competitors, perhaps none more exciting than Ian Mensher's super close photo finish in the 35-39 Scratch Race (pictured in this article, credit GC Racing for the photo).
As many of you know, there has been a passionate debate about MVA Board decisions over the past two months...particularly with regard to moto usage and Board structure. In the absence of information, it is human nature to write a negative story. In an effort to break this cycle, the Board will hold a Town Hall on Thursday August 14th (details below). We will provide a summary of the Board's responsibilities, the actions it has taken to meet those obligations and provide an open forum for members to voice questions, concerns and
