The Fort Collins Velodrome Association will host the Associates in Family Medicine 6-Day Races at the CSU Oval in Fort Collins, Colorado each Sunday from May 11 to June 15 from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m.
"In support of our effort to bring a world-class community velodrome to Fort Collins, we created this race series to give people a taste of the thrill and excitement of track racing, on the closest thing we have at the moment," said Velodrome Association Director Tim Anderson. "We invite the community to bring a picnic supper and come out and enjoy the festivities with their family and friends."
In addition to free, family-friendly fun and fast-paced excitement for spectators, there will be a wide variety of race categories for all ages and abilities, from kids to novice racers to experienced cyclists, on everything from big wheels and tricycles to custom fixed-gear and freewheeling bicycles. The May 11 kickoff event will also feature a local "celebrity" race.
