Hi all, here’s an update on track usage for this Fall and Winter.
King County Parks got in touch to inform us of a significant amount of damage that has been done to the track property during a recent cyclocross event. Additionally, a lot of the repair work that the Park did after this event has already been negatively affected by further bicycle, vehicle, and rugby use. In light of this, King County Parks has decided to close the velodrome for the Fall/Winter to allow for proper seeding and germination of the property grounds.
It's time to introduce the 2015 season MVA Board! Along with introducing those that will be leading us bravely into a certainly awesome future is our request for you to get involved! Several committees exist that seek member involvement in order to help shape the 2015 season.
The 2014 season saw yet another great year from our local coporate sponsors. As a non-profit organization, the MVA is always looking for help to offer up quality racing and training programs throughout the year, and our sponsors were awesome enough to step up once again and make it all possible. Time to put our internet hands together and give our supporters a massive round of applause (or a cheer of course).
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).
The fastest weekend in the Pacific Northwest has come and gone faster than a Keirin final. Now seems like a good time to look back at some snapshots of the action and reflect on the great accomplishments of everyone involved. Read on for a wrap-up of the Grand Prix and to get a quick look at some of the highlights.
