Collegiate track nationals begin Thursday in Northbrook. Probably none of the riders are still juniors, but you may remember some of them from junior events. There are more details in the USA Cycling announcement. Results should be posted on Veloresults, which currently shows results from Junior Worlds.

Guy Swarbrick has posted pictures of the 2005 British Cycling National Youth Track Championships. There are lots of shots of all ages and events.
I’m sure he posted these back in August, but I just found them today.

Kissena Velodrome was refurbished last year, and I just came across some information about it. First, the general information page. Second, they have a junior program going on right now. If you live in the New York City area, check it out and see when the next program is.
Kissena was in really bad shape for a long time. It’s good to see that it’s back in action.

The last Friday of the season revolved around Madison racing, with the 1-2-Pro group doing two Madisons. There were also sprints and junior racing for two age groups.
Two older juniors rode the Madisons, each with a non-junior partner.
Daniel Holloway and Dave McCook make an exchange during the 80-lap Madison. The faces say "to win, you have to accept some pain".
The younger juniors had races of their own.
These five pre-junior riders put on a good show. They are shown discussing the action in their latest race.
A few other pictures can be seen on Flickr.

Just a note for those not on the mailing list: due to conflicts there will be no sessions this month for the usual age 10-14 group.
For the 4th of September we thought attendance would be low due to the Grand Prix in San Francisco, and so I’ll be watching the race (sorry to those who said they would have ridden this time).
On the 18th the velodrome scheduled the WCCC Track Championships on top of our time slot. The WCCC comprises about 15 universities in California and Nevada, so maybe some of you will be racing in this event in a few years.
In October we plan to get back to the usual “first and third Sunday” pattern, from 2 to 5 p.m..
