Encino velodrome opens with improved track surface

The Encino Velodrome begins its 2008 race season with an improved track surface, courtesy of a grant provided by the Channel Islands Bicycle Club. For forty-five years, the concrete racing track in the heart of Southern California's Sepulveda basin has played host to exciting bicycle racing action, including the 1965 US National Championships, the 1968 US National Championships & US Olympic Trials, and the 1972 & 1973 Grand Prix of the United States. Through the work of US Concrete Design, several expansion joints were repaired and a high spot that had developed over the years was removed.

Encino Velodrome's 2008 racing season begins with the Bob Hansing Memorial Cup Series Omniums on the first Saturday night of the month from April through July. Other races include the Encino Velodrome Championships August 16th & 17th through which racers can qualify for the U.S. National Championships, the $2,000 Far West Championships August 30th & 31st, and the Southern California / Nevada Cycling Association Elite Track Cycling Championships September 13th & 14th.
