January 10/13 18:40 pm - Racing Resumes This Weekend at Forest City Velodrome

Posted by Editoress on 01/10/13

After a break over the holiday season, the Forest City Velodrome is the place to be on Saturday night, as a evening of exciting bike racing will hit the boards of the 138m Velodrome in London, Ontario.

"There will be racing for every taste", said Bob Schelstreate, the FCV track announcer. "From the Future Stars to some of the most exciting Madison racing will hit the boards at 7:00 pm on Saturday night."

"We are expecting a big turn out of riders as the push for the spring road season kicks into high gear," said Schelstreate.

The FCV continues to bulge at the seams, as the introductory clinics (Track 1) have been sold out for months. The Track 1 sessions continue to be sold out into late February.

"We have expanded our riding hours to accommodate the extra demand for track time," explained Scott Matthews, one of the Velodrome's many instructors. "We are not sure if the increase in riders is due to the Olympics, or Milton affect [but] whatever is causing more riders to come and experience the FCV we hope it continues straight into 2014."

Racing begins at 7:00 pm on Saturday night, general admission is $10.00, Seniors $5.00, Kids are always FREE.
