GVVA Track Challenge Schedule
Saturday May 11th, 2019
We have designed this schedule to be a fun event.
Categories: A, B, C and D. We will attempt to place riders of similar abilities in the same category. Depending on numbers we may wish to combine categories.
Races will be run in the following order: D then C then B then A
9:00 am – 10:00 am: Registration open / Track available for warm up
10:00 am Racing Starts:
Flying 200 Meter Time Trial D / C / B / A – 1.5 laps, timed on the final 200 meters. Starting from the back straight.
We will use flying 200 for seeding the Keirin and match sprint events and possibly for adjusting participants in A, B, C and D categories.
For the sprint tournament, 4 riders will be grouped together with the closest times. Within each group of 4, 1 verses 3 and 2 verses 4. Then, winners face each other and losers race each other. Every rider will get two match sprints facing different riders. All riders will be entered into the keirin unless they chose not to.
Italian pursuit – Teams of 6 riders, Mixed teams of 1-D, 1-3 C, 1-3 B, 1-2 A. Same concept as team sprint, with riders doing their 1/2 lap on the front and then retiring from the race. If we have odd numbers, we can make it 3.5 laps (teams of 7)
Unknown distance – no more than 8 laps, no less than 3 – D / C / B / A
Match Sprints – first round
Match Sprints – 2nd round
Chariot race – 1 lap standing start
Elimination D / C / B / A
Keirin heats D / C / B / A
Derny Race – open. Pairs of two riders made up of a lead rider (A or B) the “derny” followed by a C rider.
Keirin Finals D / C / B / A
Open Madison – 30 laps, possibly restricted gears
Colwood Crawl – to end the day’s racing on an easy one. All riders start and move slowly around the track, 1 to 3 minute unknown start time for a one lap race. Riders who cross the start line before the start or who fall, put their foot down, back up or lean against the rail are eliminated.
