The Ontario Provincial Track Championships will be run this weekend at the Forest City Velodrome in London, Ontario. This event will bring together the best Track & Road racers in the Province and Northern United States to compete for the right to represent Ontario at Track Nationals later in the Summer. "We have planned for 50-60 riders to compete in the many events over the weekend," said the organiser, who is trying to get the National Championships to London in the next two years. "This will be the largest Ontario Track event held in the Province in over 15 years." Rider entry fees are $35, covering all races for the weekend.
The program will run over three days beginning on Friday Night with the Senior men & Juniors competing in the 1,000m Time Trial also called the "Kill-o-Metre". Masters, Velo-Kids & Women will contest the 500m TT also on Friday. The racing starts at 7pm.
Racing will continue all day Saturday with preliminary round action in the Sprints and Pursuits, with event finals at 7pm. On Sunday, the Japanese style Keirin racing will begin in the morning, with the Points Race scheduled for early afternoon in all categories. Spectator admission will be $10 per night or a weekend pass for only $15, which covers all three days of racing.
