The races last night were sponsored by Golden Saddle Cyclery in Encino, and were part of the Summer Race Series. There are two more Wednesday night events on the calendar, and shouldn't be missed if you have the opportunity. Not only do you get to see some good racing, have a fun evening (a trip to the velodrome was one of the first dates I had with my wife, back in the day), and you help support a worthy institution and volunteer organization (who by the way did a great job of keeping things lively and moving).
Some highlights, well the sprints for one - there were some ripping fast circuits being ridden. One guy, don't know his name, but he is a familiar face at So Cal races, road and track, pulled out of his left pedal while flying around the track, and finished up one legged, managing to control himself and his bike. The organizers let him go again later. Then as we were headed out, my wife kindly picked up one of those cool Save The Track Bike tee-shirts for me.
If you want more, follow the link, or better yet stop by the track during the final two events of the series, August 24, or September 7.
