In addition to our regular Friday night club racing, we're thrilled to announce the addition of a Feature Friday Night Race Series (FFNRS) presented by Livestock and Incase. The last two races are on February 14th and March 21st and we're pulling all the stops! Aside from top notch racing, spectators can expect to find a beer garden featuring some of the area’s best microbrews (must be 19 or older to enter the beer garden), coffee provided by Musette Caffe, great music, good food, and fun times. Racers will be competing for points to earn the coveted Feature Friday Night Race Series Leader's jersey presented by Vie 13 Kustom Apparel. If you’ve only ever seen track racing on TV, you owe it to yourself to come on down and experience first-hand, cycling at its best!

We're lucky enough to have one of only two indoor velodromes in Canada so we're pretty passionate about putting on races that leave people with a good impression, not just of the facility but the sport as a whole. In order to make that happen we're always on the lookout for more help. Volunteer positions are typically short and leave you with plenty of time to watch the racing and soak in the atmosphere.
