On Saturday, November 12, some of the top cyclists from BC, Alberta and the Western United States will begin three days of track racing in Burnaby at Western Canada's only indoor velodrome.

Among the races featured are:
Mass start and sprint events
Points races - point sprints every 10 laps
Miss-n-outs - sprints every 2nd lap, last place rider eliminated
Scratch race- first rider across the line wins
Keirins - Japanese style racing behind a pace bike
All racing takes place at the Burnaby Velodrome, a 200-metre wooden track, located inside the Harry Jerome Sports Centre near SFU, starting at 9.00 am each day.
