Training Sessions

Our training sessions for Juniors are generally offered during the summer months. Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced levels provided. The time is reserved so that young riders can have uninterrupted track time, and have access to rental bikes and coaching. Information and times will be released Spring 2018. Have any questions in the meantime? Email juniors@velodrome.org to get in touch with our Youth Director, Amara Edwards.

Beginner Training

Intermediate Training

Wednesdays 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Beginners ready to make the jump to more intermediate racing (considering competing in Cat 4) should consider these training sessions!

Monday Night Racing

Monday night racing is the workhorse of our racing schedule! Mondays host Category 4 Men, Sprinters, Madison, 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.
