Burnaby Velodrome Summer Challenge!!
In just over a month, the Burnaby Velodrome will play host to the BVC Summer Challenge. Starting on Friday night, May 4th, and running through Sunday afternoon, the Challenge will feature mass start racing, madison racing, sprint racing, and a fixed gear challenge!
In addition to the individual mass start race omnium for the A, B, C, and Womens categories, the A and B categories will each have a separate madison omnium, featuring six madison races for the A group, and three madison races for the B group. Add to this a hotly contested Sprint Omnium featuring the exciting Keirin race and the popular Match Sprint round robin, and it's easy to see why this event is a must for any track racer!!
And if all this racing isn't enough to get you counting down the days, a minimum of $2000 in cash and $3000 in prizes from our sponsors will be awarded!
The growing list of prize sponsors for the Summer Challenge include FSA Full Speed Ahead, Saeco Canada Ltd., ATAC Sportswear, Karma Metalworks Ltd., Naked Bicycles & Design, La Bicicletta Proshop, and South Shore Cycle! Interested in joining this list? Contact the Race Organizer (contact details on website) for a list of great sponsorship opportunities!

Admission is by donation, spectator seating is available, and a race announcer will be onsite, explaining the ins and outs of the event, all weekend long. And to add to the experience, beverages will be available on Friday and Saturday night, brought to you by our sponsor, Red Truck Beer.
