Racing Information

The FCV has a great calendar of races lined up for the 2016/17 season - please see the Youth - "Young Guns"  Series and the  Elite/Masters/Rookies Racing Series - we hope to have a set of Learn to Race nights to help everyone get going fast. The feature race of the season is the Mary Kelly 100 in memory of Mary Kelly, a long time volunteer of the FCV. The Mary Kelly is a 100 lap feature race for Women only, it is scheduled for Sunday Nov 20th at 3pm.   Prizes and poduims will be available.

Watch this page and the Latest News one the website for updates.

 

 

Learn to Race

The Forest City Velodrome is a great learning environment that enables riders to learn to fast where coaches can work closely with riders. Unlike the big tracks, the FCV is a small track where the coach on the infield has full view of the riders and can easily communicate with them as they strut their stuff on the track. Approximately once per month prior to a Saturday racing event, the Learn to Race series takes riders with no or little racing experience onto the track and teaches them everything: from going to the rail the first time, to winning the various types of races on the track. Experienced riders and coaches are on hand to ease the transistion from easy riding to going full out on an attack.

The goal of the series is to build the local track racing community by providing rookies easy entry into the Masters and Rookies racing series as well as giving youth riders an opportunity to get used to riding at speed and in crowds.

Sessions will be posted shortly. Please stay tuned for additional information.

 

Young Guns Race Series

The Forest City Velodrome has a strong youth membership where we take newer riders and train them to go fast. The Youth Series is an ability, not age based, series where riders with the help of their coaches pick they category based on speed and endurance.  This allow racers of different abilties to race together and gain experience and speed. Racing categories will be A, B, C, and D so that even the youngest riders in their first year can get some experience racing. Races will be open to all youth track racers in Ontario and abroad. We hope to see 50 youth race at each event. 

The race calender is as follows:

  • Sat. November 5 2:30-5:30pm
  • Sun November 27 2:00-5:00pm
  • Sun December 18 3:00-5:30pm
  • Sat January 21 3:00-5:30pm
  • Sun February 19 3:00pm-5:30pm
  • Sun February 26 3:00pm-5:30pm  TT Events/Track Records day

All races are sanctioned by the Ontario Cycling Association as a citizens event. However, the FCV has it's own insurance plan, as such, out of province racers are no longer required to have a UCI license. Your domestic license is sufficient.

Each night racers will participate in scratch, points, elimination, and tempo (point a lap) races. Last man standing races will finish each afternoon (time permitted). All races will be run on abiltiy based categories and distances will be set to the level of each category. Podiums and prizes will be available depending on the number of registrants.

Races:

  • Scratch - a set number of laps based on ability
  • Points - a set number of laps based on ability with sprints after x (typically 5 or 10 laps)
  • Elimination - aka Miss and Out, last rider crossing the finish line every three laps is eliminiated
  • Tempo - lead rider scores a point on every lap, 4 points for lapping the field
  •
