Top track cyclists in Pacific Northwest and Canada coming to Burnaby for November Track Cycling races

On Friday, Nov 7, some of the top cyclists from BC, Alberta, Quebec, Ontario and the Western United States will begin three days of track racing in Burnaby at North America's only indoor velodrome. The competition will give local riders a chance to test their skills as they prepare for the winter track racing season. It will also enable potential Canadian 2004 Olympic hopefuls such as local rider Mandy Poitras to stay on a level playing field with the rest of the world in her quest for Olympic gold.

Among the races featured are:
• Mass start, sprint and timed events
• Points races - 50 laps, point sprints every 10 laps
• Miss-n-outs - sprints every 2nd lap, last place rider eliminated
• Kilometer and 500m time trials - individual riders against the clock
• 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, featuring hair-raising 47 degree corners and lots of opportunities for dramatic photos and visuals. There will be novice Learn to Race clinics held the week before to prepare riders for their first race and a VeloVets program held during the lunch hour.
