Ah, Friday night racing at the track. It’s a great place to have a picnic with the family and see bike racing up close. Dreams of glory are dashed and fulfilled. And that’s just the Kiddie Kilo!
Of course, the Marymoor Velodrome Association is much, much more, including races, camps and classes. If you think you’ve got what it takes to help the MVA programs be successful, throw in your helmet for the new Program Director position. While the Director does not have to be a bicycle racer, the MVA says that a working understanding of track cycling is a big plus.
