American Velodrome Challenge pulls big names

The American Velodrome Challenge has announced Jennie Reed and Adam Duvendeck will contest this year's event at Hellyer Park Velodrome on July 20-21. The pair recently won medals at the Pan American Championships in Venezuela, with Duvendeck taking silver in the team sprint while Reed, a 2004 Olympian, took multiple medals including a gold in the keirin.

The announcement of the pair's participation at this year's event is an added boost for the track race, which has also increased the total prize pot. There is not some $10,000 USD up for grabs, following the signing of SugarCRM as a sponsor.

"We're bringing on quality riders and sponsors and taking this race to the next level," said race director Robin Horwitz. "There is a decidedly new flavor being introduced to the local track racing scene."

The challenge will feature several races over two days, ranging from sprints to endurance rides.
