Wednesday Night Worlds Welcomes Visitors

Thank you once again to everyone who helped short track go off without a hitch. What a wonderful summer it has been for racing!

This week also brought ABC Channel 7 from Denver to cover the story.

Be sure to check out CU Short Track on Channel 7 on SUNDAY at 10 P.M.

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

This Wednesday, June 11th, the Research Park will once again come alive as the racers take to the dirt in what has become a Wednesday night Boulder tradition. As always, the Boulder community has taken up our cause and made some fantastic donations.

  • Full Cycle
  • Wahoo's
  • Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory
  • The Rio Grande
  • Haagen Dazs

In regards to the issue of last weeks registrations and cancelled races.

"For the races (Men's A and Women's A) that didn't start due to the downpour, start sheets have been kept and all previously paid entries will be accounted for and honored."

So come on out to support the racers and be a part of what is now Boulder's largest race series!
