10-Mile, Keirin, Madison All on Friday’s Card
Valley Preferred Cycling Center will celebrate the Fourth of July weekend in grand cycling fashion on Friday night. The event will feature cycling’s most-popular races all on one card.
There will definitely be fireworks, but it’s not the kind you are thinking of. Some of the highest caliber of pro track cyclists will clash in the World Series of Bicycling. There will be explosive speed, loud noises, flashes of color and a steady stream of fire power.
Friday’s event will showcase three key races to spark the T-Town crowd:
- US 10 Mile Championship
- Invitational Keirin
“All three of those events are definitely fantastic events in their own right, but to be able to showcase those events to the fans on the Fourth of July weekend is going to be awesome,” said Marty Nothstein, executive director of Valley Preferred Cycling Center. ”What I think is going to make it extremely exciting is the quality of riders. We have German riders in town, riders from Argentina, New Zealand, Canada and Australia. We have just about every favorite and dangerous event on the track in one night.”
Friday’s rider count is expected to be strong. Several sprinters are in town for the short distance events, and the 10-Mile and Madison is attracting some of the best distance riders.
