The fourth annual PDW Omnium took place on May 30, 2015 at the beautiful Alpenrose Velodrome in Portland. Everyone enjoyed an afternoon of track racing, eating burgers, hot dogs and ice cream floats. Big ups to Clint Culpepper and to all the racers for another successful year of the event.
It’s sad to see yet another Midwest velodrome need our support. The Chicago Velodrome is in desperate need of your help, as it requires a chunk of change for repairs. You can find out more at their Go Fund Me or pick up a South Chicago Velodrome Association shirt.

British Cycling always has great photos during the UCI Track Worlds. These men’s and women’s team pursuit images from Paris, France are excellent and there’s more where that came from. Head over to British Cycling’s Flickr to check out the rest.
As part of the Hoy brand, the former accomplished – to say the least – track racer has teamed up with UK company Vulpine on a line of cycling apparel. Inspired by vintage style, with a modern fit, the Hoy Vulpine line is in stock now online. Or you can see the line in person at the London Bike Show.
Also, that bike is so good!
Nice find Tracko! I hope everyone is enjoying their Holiday time off from work and getting in some miles on their bikes.
Talk about intense!
Track racing is one of the most unique forms of cycling because it requires a special venue and when said venue is threatened, the sport itself takes the hit. The NSC Velodrome is the only velodrome in Minneapolis and right now, it needs our help.
If you’re in the area, there’s a fundraiser this weekend but you don’t have to live in Minneapolis to help support track cycling. Donate at the NSC Velodrome’s Go Fund Me page and help re-pave this beautiful track. If you’d like to some some truly wonderful photos of this velodrome, check out Kyle’s photos at Tracko.
… speaking of Japan!
Say that three times fast… Here’s a video from the mid 70’s at the famous Vigorelli velodrome. Check out more on this at the Vimeo page.
