The sprinters and spectators are an array of cyclists and bike envy peeps. From the fixster hipster to the commuter to the girl that takes her bike to Trader Joes on the weekend to a National Champion?! Maybe one reason for the crowd was to catch a glimpse of Team USA National Track Champion cyclist Kevin Mansker from Portland Oregon. Kevin went on to win this event Sunday with times in the low 8's.
4 more races are on the books at Hot Italian, Feb 6 & 20 and March 6 & 20. This is all to raise awareness and donations for the Sacramento Valley Velodrome Association http://sacvalleyvelodrome.org/?page_id=19
