Message from Pat

Thanks to everyone who made the Erie Community Day a success, including our fabulous volunteers! We had 45 people ride at BVV for the very first time—and many signed up for certification classes!

BVV and the Colorado Springs Velodrome will share promotion of the Senior State Championships. We will run the time trial portion (see below) and are working to extend the season a few weeks for Tuesday and Thursdays to bring back the Colorado Track Cup.

Founding member and Rider of the Week Ray Middleton suggested we run a weekly lap contest at the track—and we will start that this week (see below).

So much happening at BVV gives you lots of reasons to come out and ride. See you at the track!


Colorado State Time Trial Championships

Sunday, August 26

Our time trial days have been gaining in popularity, so at month end, come on out and go for the gold! We will hold Time Trial Championships for USAC Cat 1-3 Men & Women as well as a separate class for Cat 4 Men & Women to let our newer riders have a chance to show what they've got! USAC license required.

Racing Recap

The highlight of Tuesday Racing @ BVV was an All Category Handicap that resulted in some great racing and very close finishes! We mixed all riders—Masters, Cat 4 Men & Women—then had the fastest and strongest riders race a longer distance (aka a Handicap)! A quick thank you to Lida, Denise and Erica for representing on the high banks! On Thursday night we held the season's first Madison and saw our best spectator turnout this summer! Look out fast guys 'n gals—we have a Handicap scheduled for this Thursday! Not to be outdone, the Saturday Sprints saw lots of action. Our "iron man" of the week, Terry Lott, who was undefeated on Saturday also raced all three days! Come out for our Saturday races! You don’t need a USAC license and its always fun. Time trials are on for this Saturday!

BVV Weekly Lap Contest

How many laps do you think you put in each week? How far do you go? Who puts in the most miles in the track? To recognize and encourage our unsung, consistently-on-the-track riders, we are kicking off the BVV Weekly Lap Contest. It's easy. When you come out to ride, sign in, then at the end of your training, write down the number of laps you rode. We will track the Monday-through-Sunday laps and announce the winners in next week's newsletter. The rider with the most laps receives a special prize. So remember to sign-in and track your laps!!

Rider of the WeekRay Middleton

If you have seen the smiling gentleman with the slight southern drawl on the track, chances are you already met Ray. He's been racing for 27+ years around the country and the world and has represented the U.S. in international competition. “Becky and I were all in as founding members. Having an Olympic track (250m) in our backyard makes it really easy to train and be prepared for racing anywhere in the world.” Ray is legally blind and cannot drive. Many of his international accomplishmentsand there are so manyhave been on the back of a tandem. With only 10% vision in his right eye, he can follow the track lines with no problem. Ray and Becky moved to Erie to be near BVV and he is at the track nearly every day. “I love this place and I’m still chasing the dream at 68.” Will Ray steal the Lap Contest from you?
