We are incredibly pleased to launch the Colorado Track Cup in 2013, with a balanced calendar of events between the Colorado Springs Velodrome and the Boulder Valley Velodrome in Erie. Funding and support for the Colorado Track Cup has come from the Colorado Velodrome Association (CVA), and with funding in place, we have contracted with Pat McDonough to serve as our Track Coordinator. Pat has a tremendous amount of track and cycling experience, including an Olympic silver medal and years running the velodrome in Trexlertown, Pennsylvania. With input from the CVA and our Colorado Track Advisory Committee (Cari Higgins, Colby Pearce, Vic Williams, Mark Tyson, Noreen Landis-Tyson, and Pat McDonough), we have built a comprehensive racing calendar, State Championship events, and season-long points competition for Colorado track racing.
In 2013, Colorado will be home to two fantastic velodromes: the Colorado Springs Velodrome and the Boulder Valley Velodrome in Erie. The collaboration between these two venues is unprecedented in American cycling, and will provide our cycling community with unparalled track racing.
The Colorado Springs Velodrome is part of the Olympic Training Center and was built to prepare American athletes for the 1984 Olympic Games. This 330 meter track has hosted track racing in the Springs for the last 25 years, including midweek racing, weekend racing, National Championships, UCI International events, season-long points competitions, and programs to help beginners understand all the great racing events on the track.
The Boulder Valley Velodrome in Erie will open this year after five years of dedication and hard work. This 250 meter wooden track will be fast, fun and a huge compliment to the Boulder County and Colorado cycling community. A HUGE thank you to everyone involved in this amazing project.
