New England Track Championships – August 5th & 6th

Via Bostonfixed

Next Tuesday and Wednesday (august 5th & 6th) are the new england track championships at the new england velodrome in Londonderry, NH. Tuesday is for A,B riders and Wednesday is C,D and women.

Gates open at 4, racing starts at six.

Events are a match sprint, kilo, and a points race. it’s an omnium set-up – you score points in each race that you place in, and whoever has the most points at the end of the night wins for the category. top four finishers get points – 1st gets 5, 2nd 3, 3rd 2 and 4th 1.

YOU SHOULD COME.

it’s really awesome that Tony, Laurie, Dick Ring and whoever else involved are pulling together a New England championship. you can go race other regional champs. and feel fancy. we should support this. we’re part of small niche of people that already own track bikes and we should be reppin’ harder. Rides can be worked out, and usually depart around 3/3.30. post up if you want to go and which night you would be going. (go to forum to actually post)

Just think. YOU could be a new england champion by this time next week!

Sounds like a fun time, you should all go check it out.
