Tuesday Night Lights is the newest training opportunity the track is offering for the upcoming season. Designed for those who need later hours to train or simply can't make it out during the day, the MVA will turn the lights on from 7:30PM to 9:30 PM to provide training hours on the track. The first time we'll turn the lights on is April 7th!
To pay for the operation of the lights, the MVA is charging a one time fee of $20. This covers riders who use the facility once or forty times during the season.
On Saturday, March 21, twenty-four lucky attendees enjoyed two hours of match sprint and keirin tactics from our locally-grown superstar Jennie Reed. The venue at Redmond Town Center, the SecondStory Hideaway, formerly the Big Picture Theater, offered up beverages, comfortable theater seats, and the biggest projection surface I've ever seen bicycle racing on! Jennie led us through a great curated list of videos of male and female match sprint and keirin racing over the past decade.
