What’s different about the Advanced Class?
More racing, faster upgrades, for experienced cyclists only! You must have a current USAC license and be a recognized road Category 4 or higher to participate in this class. Participants will be brought up to speed on the specifics of track racing while tailoring the content to riders with more racing experience!
As with all classes, the priority for this class is ensuring that track racers understand the rules and requirements for safe racing on the velodrome. In fact, the only way to upgrade from Cat 5 to Cat 4, is to show safe racecraft. Fitness plays almost no part. The strictness on safety is something everyone benefits from. In 2019 there were only 2 crashes in the 200+ races that were held at JBMV.
This class will spend less time on drafting and pack concepts, as participants will already have that knowledge from road racing. There will be a greater emphasis, however, on variations of track races as well as the tactical differences between them. Best of all, you’ll get to try lots of them!
What comes after?
After the Advanced Class:
Racenight certification – on Monday Nights, race a regularly scheduled racenight of three races to reinforce and demonstrate the safety skills from the class. Typical minimum of 1, included in Advanced Class fee. Then:
Cat 4 Racing: From this class, start with 5 of 20 upgrade points already. Racing on Wednesdays, every other Friday and select Sundays, maximum of 5 points per night (doable in 1 week if you are the fastest!)
Cat 3 Racing: Eligible to race the big show on Friday Nights. Upgrade points on Fridays and select Sundays.
You can read all about upgrade info HERE!
The $40 class fee includes:
- 4 hour class with loaner bike (if needed)
- 1 FREE Beginner Night Race entries ($10 value)
- Discounted JBMV Membership for the Current Year ($10 instead of $20)
Offer only available for beginners and first-time participants. And what a deal this is! You get a lot of bang for your buck when you sign up for an adult track class at the Velodrome.
