The Schedule of Racing is available here. For more information about how the schedule was designed, you can check out the Schedule Guidelines.

This year the event will be conducted over six days instead of the previous five-day format. This will give each age group a day during the schedule for rest and sightseeing, and will also keep the total duration of the racing sessions to under 9 hours per day.

The park will open at 7:45am each day, and the morning racing session will start at 9:30am each morning except the first morning (Tuesday-10:00am) and the last morning (Sunday-10:00am). The morning session will finish at around 2:30-3:00pm most days. The evening session will start at 6:00pm and will finish at around 9:00-10:00pm.

During the afternoon break people can take advantage of open track training and the acres of shaded grass with picnic tables and bar-b-que grills that are next to the velodrome and parking area. There are also nearly 15 miles of off-street, paved bike paths that start at the velodrome and connect to some of the hotels located south of the velodrome. Most hotels are within 5-10 minutes easy drive.

All kilos and 500's will be on the first day (Tuesday) and evening, and they should be finished by 9:30 pm. No group will be doing two different events on the same day-the only exception being for points race heats, if needed, and those heats would be in the morning with the event final in that same evening.

Nearly all groups will be racing on Saturday. The team events and madisons are on Sunday. We'll begin with team sprint (one ride), then team pursuit, and then the madisons-the same as in most years.
