Rodger Delange Race

Last night was the Rodger Delange race at the Northbrook velodrome. It was special evening celebrating the life of Rodger Delange, who had dedicated so much of his time to the cycling community. Also honored was Franco Panveno, a fixture at the track and the entire cycling community. His race number was retired in a ceremony just before the racing got underway. It was a spectacular evening with high-speed racing, just the way Roger and Franco would have loved!
