Mid Week Winter Track cycling returns to Melbourne after the demolition of the old Olympic Park Velodrome 35 years ago. The Northcote Cycling Club Inc is promoting track racing at the newly completed Indoor Velodrome in Darebin every Thursday night during the winter months until October, starting this Thursday.
Thanks to generous sponsorship from Le Tour Cycles, Team Alex, Paul Hillbrick Frames and Velocity Wheels the club will be able to offer racing for all categories. The three guaranteed races (no handicaps) will start at 7.30 pm. There are four grades planned for now with separate women's races. All riders go in the draw to win a complete INEXA track bike (no pedals).
