Fred’s Race was established in 2012 as a way to honor and remember local cyclist Fred C. Rehberger. “Fred would go” became the motto and the spirit of the race – sign-up and race, no matter what, and enjoy the great community of riders. Fred embodied that friendly and supportive spirit, and it is remembering him that we continue to invite all to come out and compete at the Northwest Regional Track Cycling Championships, “Fred’s Race”.

The Jerry Baker Juniors with the team Trophy in 2018

Though there is a lot of prestige in winning medals for individual events, perhaps the biggest prize (and certainly the biggest trophy!) is the Team Trophy, awarded to the team that performs the best overall. Individual results are calculated from all events, including time trials, sprint tournament, and every mass start race. By the end of the weekend, the team with the most medals gets the trophy!
