CU Cycling Fundraiser

Hello to all you short track fans that are still checking the page! We hope the collegiate MTB season went well for those of you still in school. For those of you who aren't in school, we are hoping you are enjoying the wonderful fall weather and the cyclo-cross season!

We do have a fundraiser for CU Cycling coming up at the beginning of November which we would like to personally invite all of you to. Hudz and Miles Ahead Events are bringing the ROCKY MOUNTAIN BIKE SHOW to CU November 1 and 2. From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. they will be showcasing some of the best frame builders around the country as well as bringing the newest components and accessories from Interbike in Vegas.

The admission to the event is only $5 and it is definitely family friendly. But the really cool part... A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS GO TO CU CYCLING!!

So after the cross races (the Boulder Cup and the Redline Cup), raking the lawn, or even after your training ride, make sure to stop by the Glenn Miller Ballroom in the University Memorial Center (UMC) and check out the Rocky Mountain Bike Show!

Pass the word along to all your friends and we hope to see you there!

August 6th Results

Sorry for the delay. There are also no individual results for women's A and men's A at this time. In order to calculate final series standings faster, only point totals were counted and not all of the places were sorted out. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks again for all of your support!

Final Short Track

Thank you to everyone who came out not only this past Wednesday but every Wednesday throughout the summer. The Short Track Crew thanks you a million times over for making this summer short track series possible!! Thank you also for supporting CU Cycling, we cannot begin to describe how much of an impact you all have made on the team.

Thank you also to all of our sponsors who gave us prizes to pass out every week. It was wonderful to have people from the Boulder community take part in Wednesday Night Worlds.

Please, continue to check CUSHORTTRACK.COM throughout the year as we give updates about next summer and other events that we will be hosting. Look forward to a possible Cyclocross race in the fall....

Thank you so much again, we greatly appreciate it! Until next time....

The series leaders in each category have been racing great all season. But don't forget that only THE TOP 7 RESULTS of each rider will be counted for the overall series winner. That means that riders that have only competed in 6 events so far can earn up to 200 points next week with a win whereas racers that have already raced 7 races can only improve their points with the difference between their lowest points earned so far in the race. This should make for some really interesting competitive racing next week! Be sure to come out and watch as a few of the categories will only be separated by a couple of points. Its sure to be a "Wednesday Night Worlds" event! We also have some great series prizes to give out next week!

ALSO, if you have taken any photos or video at recent races, please feel free to send it to We will post them and be sure to credit your artistic eye.

Outstanding Turnout For Wednesday Night Worlds

June 18th Results Posted!

We had nearly 150 racers AGAIN this week. Thank you to all of the racers for making the CU Cycling Short Track races so successful! The Short Track Crew is pumped to see so many people out racing every week.

Thank you again to all of our sponsors for supporting the racers in all categories. We are stoked to give out some awesome prizes to first, second and third places!

For next week, the Juniors will be racing in a category by themselves as we had a HUGE turnout this past Wednesday. For the safety of Women's B and Junior racers, we are dividing the races. Junior racing will now begin at 5 p.m. sharp. Women's B race will follow directly after at the scheduled time of 5:15 p.m.

Also, we have formed a partnership with BMA (Boulder Mountain bike Alliance) so be sure to check out their tent next week.

Once again, thank you to everyone for making this possible! Until next week...

Wind, wind and more wind. Setting up the course this week was a bit of a challenge as the Boulder Valley saw winds near 40 miles per hour. But nonetheless, the short track crew pulled off yet another race despite inclement weather.

Everyone rode hard through the wind and we had close to 150 race entries this week!

We had a guest send off for the Men's A race from Full Cycle's co-owner, Kevin Kelly.

We would like to thank everyone for coming out again this week to race and watch Wednesday Night Short Track. Thank you to all of our sponsors for providing prizes to the top 3 finishers in each race.

If you know someone, or are someone, who would like to donate a prize, please contact Phil Joyce
