Dick Lane Velodrome: Wednesday Night Racing Vol. 1
Category: Journal

This past week, Dick Lane Velodrome opened its gates for the 2011 weekly racing season. 39 riders came out to race across three categories. The first race of the night was the chariot race, which is a one lap drag race. Here is a shot of Faster Mustache rider Brian Tester sprinting to his first win of the season in the A’s Chariot Race:

Next up was the win and out, one of my favorite races. I made a move at the bell and opened up a small gap

however, I was edged out at the line by East Point Track Club rider Jardslau Mol. Speaking of the East Point Track Club, here is a shot of one of their new riders, Stephen Touset, riding across the line to take third in the C’s win and out.

The last races of the evening were the 5, 8, and 10 mile record attempts. While there was strong racing in all categories, no records fell. Here is Scott Patton of Fixed Gear Fever fame doing some work for the B group’s 8 mile attempt:

The weather was perfect all night long. A small but vocal crowd was out to cheer on the racers. Overall it was a a great kick off to what should be another amazing season of racing at Dick Lane Velodrome. I’ll leave you with a shot of the A’s field mixing it up in the Win and Out.

Lookout for regular race recaps and features as the season heats up!

    I know I look menacing in that photo, but that’s apparently just the face I make when I’m breathing so hard that oxygen is being forced through my facial pores.
