SpokedSTL is excited to host our 2nd annual pre-season “Intro To Track Racing” clinic. These free clinics are designed for anyone who has ever thought about giving track racing a shot but really isn’t sure what to expect. It’s the perfect opportunity to borrow a track bike or ride your own, and take a spin around the banked track.  Basically, the only thing you need is a bike and a helmet. As the clinics progress, we will ask that participants ride track bikes in order to ensure everyone has a safe and positive experience on the track. Each clinic builds on top of the last, but you will not be too lost if you miss one.

We will be covering the following topics: 

  1. track markings
  2. types of races
  3. individual races vs. mass start races
  4. scoring races
  5. rules and etiquette

More specific track info and terms can be found on last year’s clinic page.

Clinics start at 5:30pm. A group ride will be leaving from A&M Cycles in Tower Grove South at 5pm.
