Hellyer has a long tradition of developing racers that have transitioned from new velodrome user to National, World or Olympic level athlete. In support of this tradition we’ve started the Hellyer Racer Development Program with a specific focus on mass start events including scratch, points, miss-n-out and madison.

There are no teams to join, we’re focused on developing athletes regardless of what kit they wear!

Below are current events at the velodrome and on the road for the 2014 year.

Introduction to Racing and Training Series The Introduction to Racing and Training Series, part of the Hellyer Racer Development Program, introduces new velodrome users to mass start racing at the Velodrome. The sessions introduce new users to the format of race night, velodrome rules, safety, etiquette, race tactics and more. All sessions start with an organized warmup and continue with discussion about what to expect and how to prepare for race night at Hellyer.
