NOTE TO JUNIORS: Free track certification classes will be held for junior participants prior to competition. If not already certified, this class is mandatory for junior athletes in mass start events and strongly recommended for competitors in individual events. The certification class will help riders become more comfortable with riding a 250-meter wood track with banking of more than 40 degrees, which has significant differences to more shallow-banked concrete tracks. Junior riders will receive expert instruction to help them in navigating the track safely and instill more confidence, which will ultimately assist in the overall safety of the event. These classes will be provided at no charge. Athletes must pre-register. A schedule of classes will be posted once it is finalized. Please allow for time to attend a class when making travel plans to Carson.
