Auction raises money for MVA track programs

On a cold and rainy Seattle night last weekend, the Marymoor Velodrome Association raised US$20,000 for its track programs. On an evening with conditions about the furthest from the ideal for track racing, supporters gathered to hear nine-time Tour de France finisher Frankie Andreu regale the crowd with tales from his amateur and pro racing days.

The money will go toward children's cycling classes and new rider and women rider development programs. In 2007, MVA will have programs dedicated to sprint competitions, time trials, and rider development in addition to regular Wednesday Night and Friday Night Racing.
