Thursday Night Races
USA Cycling Mass Start Racing
Boulder Valley Velodrome’s Thursday Night Racing series (TNR) features racing with some of the fastest racers from around the country and occasionally, the world. On Thursday nights we encourage spectators to bring a picnic and make a night of it. The fast paced action with a variety of nail-biting events are enjoyed by racers and spectators alike. Music, a race announcer and crowd giveaways make this a great night to bring the family! Our 2019 TNR Series is put on every other week during the season.
2-man Team Race Series
The Madison is a two-man continuous relay event that takes technical skill, endurance, speed, teamwork and tactical savvy. On certain Thursday nights BVV will be offering a combination training / racing night where riders can learn this incredible event and experienced riders can compete. This series consists of “training” nights with the finale being the CO State Madison Championship.
Moto Lap & Wheel Races
Unique Training Races
Motor-paced race, a form of competition in which each track cyclists competes behind a motorbike or e-bike. The bicycles used to have small front wheels, enabling the rider to move close to a freely moving roller on a bar projecting from the rear of the pacing motorbike and thus to take full advantage of the air currents created by the motorbike’s passage. The technique requires excellent teamwork by both the motorcyclist and the racer to keep from becoming separated and thereby losing ground. Speeds may average better than 60 kilometres (40 miles) per hour in a 100-kilometre (62.1-mile) race.
Saturday Time Trials
It’s a race against the clock, others and each rider’s personal best
Saturday Time Trials offer a glimpse into the vast athletic diversity of track cyclists. Events range from flying 200m time trials that display fast-twitch speed and power to 4km time trials that demonstrate unrelenting stamina and disciplined aerodynamics. Participants may also compete in team sprint and pursuit events. Saturday Time Trials are held on specific weeks throughout the season. As always, spectating is encouraged and free to all.
Competition Keirin races are conducted over several rounds with one final.
Colorado State Track Championships

On specific weekends throughout the season we host championship events for juniors, masters, time trialists and sprinters. As always, spectating is encouraged and free to all.
