What is Track Cycling?

Friday Night Racing
Racing happens all week at the track, only taking a break on Tuesdays. However, Friday Night Racing (FNR) is the main destination on our weekly race calendar. The "Big Show" combines our fastest racers, great local beer and wine, food trucks, and a whole bunch of spectators to create one of the Pacific Northwests' absolute best ways to spend a Friday evening.
Friday Night means we bring out the good stuff. We have a rotating spot for local food trucks to stop by the track and make sure you've aren't cheering on an empty stomach. And if you need a little extra for your evening, OS Winery, Mac & Jack's Brewery and Locust Cider are always cold and ready to serve in our beverage garden.
Watch the Best!
The last day of the week is when all the fast riders come out to play. Our most experienced riders, Cat 1/2 Men, Cat 3 Men, and Cat1/2/3 Women, dawn their gear and put on the "Fastest Show on Two Wheels". Come frequently and you'll find your favorites. Riders not only compete for each individual race, but are also competing for the season long omnium points.
We think you'll really enjoy your time at the track - bring your family, friends, co-workers, dogs, everybody! You might find you enjoy racing so much that you're going to want to sign-up for a class and try it yourself! Friday Night admission is $5 per adult at the front gate. Interested in just checking it out? Stop by Monday/Wednesday for free and see what racing is all about.
Racing typically goes from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM, and admission is only $5 for the whole evening!
Here's something to get excited about - Track Cycling includes a whole bunch of different types of races! On an average evening, you'll see each category compete in three race formats each.
We could take a whole bunch of time to introduce each of these formats, but instead we thought'd it would be fun to share these excellent videos made by Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), the governing body responsible for international cycling competition. There are more than what's listed here (we even have our very own race, the Marymoor Crawl!), but this is certainly enough to get any fan started.
