New perpetual-ish race schedule in effect! Much like the thursday Worlds, tracklocross is now "scheduled" for the first Sunday of every month, usually 10:00 (arrive by 09:30 to pre-ride the course). If you're available to help with setup, please let the community know.Engage with FITA - IG has the lastest races posted every month:
What do you need to race? Well, the list is intimidating, one must admit:
- a bike (any bike, but tracklocross bikes are cooler and more fun than any other type)
- a human to ride said bike
- a helmet is strongly advised
- a water bottle
- beer to share
- a cheering section
- a bluetooth speaker or two
- whatever handups you have on hand
- your dog(s)
- pit wheels/spares
- a pump and maybe some tools

Meet for pre-lap at start-finish line, which is best accessed via the gate opposite the waterski-jump area a few hundred yards past the dog park section of the "island."
No race numbers, no entry fees, no registration, no UCI nonsense.
One lap takes about 10 minutes and comprises 2.8 miles. A race is 5 laps, so most fit riders will finish in 50-60 minutes.
Tracklocross bikes are encouraged, as fixed is more fun and there's really no need for brakes on this course. Plus, whip-skids in dirt. Tires: ~35-45mm gravel or cyclocross tires. Any bike is fine, but cyclocross/gravel seems to be fastest.
Race results are forever etched upon the minds of the combatants, but never recorded on any media due to security requirements.
