For fast, furious, and exciting action, mark your calendars to attend the USA Cycling Elite Track National Championships being held this August at the Giordana Velodrome, 1000 Riverwalk Parkway, Rock Hill at Riverwalk.
This event is USA Cycling’s premier track event of the year. The country’s top men and women track cyclists will take to the track on August 12–17, 2014, competing for national titles in all track cycling disciplines. These cyclists exceed speeds of 40 mph on the track, racing wheel to wheel and shoulder to shoulder. These athletes demonstrate the breath-taking bike handling skills needed to race at the elite level.
Some of the “must see” racing events during this 6-day event are the Miss and Out races on Thursday evening, the Match Sprints on Friday evening, the Keirin and Madison races on Saturday evening, and the Points Races on Sunday morning.
Admission for spectators is free and seating is available on a first come first served basis. On Tuesday–Saturday, race sessions will begin each day at 9:00 am and 6:30 pm. On Sunday, August 17, there will only be a morning race session at 9:00 am. Visit the Race Expo on Friday and Saturday, with free giveaways. Food and drink will be available for purchase at the velodrome on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.
