Coming up:

John Fraser Memorial Time Trial – This is the fifth and final event of this series and its outdoors! The 10 mile course is held in Maple Park, and although it’s flat, there’s always wind to contend with. If you’re interested, sign up soon to get a good start time. For race information, click here.

Spring Super Criterium – Do you feel the need for speed? Plan to head out to Blackhawk Farms Raceway and speed away in next weekend’s race.

There are indoor bathrooms with showers and a place to grab a snack – yes!! For race details, click here.
