Saturday Sprints

Match sprint tournaments that showcase rider tactics, speed and power
What are the fastest races on the track? Sprints! Match sprint tournaments begin with a flying 200m time trial for each participant. Each racer is then seeded according to the selected format, and then the head-to-head competition begins. Match sprints last just three laps, often starting out slow and tactical with nail-biting finishes. These races are often likened to chess on wheels. Saturday Sprints are held on specific weeks throughout the season. As always, spectating is encouraged and free to all.
