Our training sessions for Juniors are generally offered during the summer months. Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced levels provided.

Monday Night Racing

Monday night racing is the workhorse of our racing schedule! Mondays host Sprinters, Beginner Men and Women, and of course the Junior riders. This is typically where our junior riders come weekly to develop racing skills, work on their race awareness, and build speed while competing against their peers.

Weeknight racing requires registration and race fees - check out the dedicated page for Monday Night Racing to learn more.
