Hellyer Park Velodromes New Website

With a recently unveiled new velodrome logo and what looks to be a lot of work by the Northern California Velodrome Association team, the folks managing the Hellyer County Park Velodrome's brand new website. Per the site:

Welcome to the website of the Hellyer County Park Velodrome, Northern California’s only dedicated bicycle racing facility. The velodrome, operated within Santa Clara’s Hellyer County Park, has offered bike racing opportunities for beginner through world-class racers since 1963.
On these pages you can find resources for getting started on the track, a calendar of race and training sessions, and information on how to get involved in running the velodrome.
Thanks for visiting. We look forward to seeing you on the track.

You can see it all for yourself here:



And the winner is...

Finalist #3, Kevin Talley, , for his photo from the Alpenrose Velodrome in Portland, OR. This winning photo is great in many ways, showing the intensity of a standing start, on the face of one of the great young talents in US sprint cycling, Kevin Mansker. Congratulations go out to Kevin and we look forward to his photo gracing the cover of ATRA's 2012 Season Guide, which should be out and available some time in March. You can see the winning photo on our facebook page here:
