Since we can't get enough fixed-gear racing action from just one short racing season, the MVA is hosting another set of Roller Racing events during the off-season to get us all "geared up" for this summers high-speed action. You can find us at three different upcoming events, and we hope you'll be able to make it by to visit us at some or all of them!
What is an off-season clinic you say? An opportunity to sit down (with the option to have an alcohol drink in hand) and learn from the best. Our two experts will be Jennie Reed and Zak Kovalcik who will be presenting in their areas of expertise (sprinting and endurance). The presenters will go over basic and advanced tactics, stories, videos and have a section for questions. After each of these clinics the party will continue at Element Cycles with our Roller Racing and Track Standing competitions starting at 6pm.
Show your love by volunteering!!! As you know any great event or organization needs amazing volunteers. And this year the Marymoor Velodrome Assocation is trying to sweeten the deal! For every 4 hours that you sign up and volunteer at an approved volunteer opportunity you will get credit for a FREE regular race night (value $25-$30). To check out the upcoming volunteer opportunities please click the link and add your name and email to the available spots!
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!
