Velodromeshop.net Winter Track Racing Series


Winter has arrived in Queensland, Australia so acclaimed Australian Coaches "Repsych Cycling Development" and British company "Velodromeshop.net" are proud to announce the start of the 2014 Winter Track Racing Series.

The racing is aimed at all track riders from junior to masters levels who would like to race in a variety of events on the track.

Chandler Velodrome, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia


The racing will start at 7:30pm on Friday night the 16th of May and will be held fortnightly for a series of 10 races.

World & Commonwealth Track Champion and Repsych Head Coach Kerrie Meares says "The event will provide an excellent opportunity to re-establish and kick start track racing in Queensland. The racing will give riders much needed experience in practicing training skills and tactics ahead of the 2014 track season" 

Whilst Queensland has produced some excellent track riders over the years, the hype of track racing isn't there at the moment so Velodromeshop.net and Repsych got together with the aim of putting that excitement back into the sport.

Repsych Assistant Coach Ky Lane has some strong aims of the racing series. "The old days of racing used to bring huge crowds, and we want to put Queensland back on the track map. There will be equal prize money for racers and we hope to draw good crowds and numbers to the event. We need to put our riders back on National podiums so we need to expose them to better competition and racing opportunities.".

Starting May 16th, we will be running Friday night racing every fortnight for 10 rounds from 7:30pm at Brisbane's Chandler Velodrome.

A mixture of sprint and endurance events with equal prize money for Mens A/B/C - Womens A/B and a combined Juniors grade.

$30 entry for seniors, and $20 for juniors on the night.

We will announce the mixed bag of different events for the sprinters and enduros on the night - so be prepared for some fun racing!
