World champion on the track, Sarah Hammer (USA), will host the first annual Celebration of Excellence on Saturday, August 12, 2006. In April 2006, Hammer became the USA’s first track rider to win a gold medal in a decade. In honouring her achievement, she will be joined by Olympians, prominent business leaders and sporting visionaries in an effort to raise funds for women’s track cycling in the USA.
Celebration of Excellence will be held at the ADT Event Center Velodrome, part of the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. The event will start with a reception at 12:00 pm, and the ceremony will begin at 12:30 pm. A world record attempt and exhibition racing will form part of the program.
