You are Invited!
Special Kick-Off Day at the
7-11 U.S. Olympic Training Center Velodrome
Colorado Springs, CO

The Colorado Velodrome Association (CVA) is very excited to invite track cycling enthusiasts from around the region to our “Opening Day” this Saturday, June 6th at the 7-11 U.S. Olympic Training Center Velodrome in Colorado Springs, CO. The Velodrome will be open for training from 9am until 6pm.

The CVA would especially like to invite those riders who have experienced the new Boulder Indoor Velodrome to our facility here in Colorado Springs. The Boulder facility has been a tremendous success and has introduced hundreds of cyclists to track riding in only its first year. Our facilities are very different and as such we believe that the riders in our region have a unique opportunity and can really benefit by utilizing BOTH of these great cycling facilities.

Requirements:
Riders must hold a 2009 USA Cycling Racing License and will be asked to sign waivers prior to riding the track. Any riders under the age of 18 must have a parent and/or legal guardian sign these waivers to participate. If you don’t currently have a USA Cycling license you can apply on line at HYPERLINK "http://www.usacycling.org" www.usacycling.org.

Only track bicycles will be allowed on the velodrome during this training session and all riders must wear an approved cycling helmet. CVA has a limited number of track bicycles for rent at this time so please email us to reserve a bicycle for this session. CVA representatives will be on hand to answer questions regarding the 2009 racing season, training sessions, and CVA membership.
