2018 bike races around the country
« on: March 21, 2018, 04:19:59 PM »
I am hoping we can post links, dates and information about local and national bike races going on in 2018 in this thread.
I just saw a flyer for this not that I could have gone but maybe next time.

I also saw the flyer for the Big Bagger Grudge fest at the Keystone Racway park in Pa on
June 10,2018 but can not find a web site or link to it.

Hopefully some others  will post info and dates on all types of bike race events through out the year. Sometimes the smaller up and coming races are the best ones to catch.

Well, let me start off, for anyone in the Twin Cities, indoor flat track races at the fairgrounds this Friday, qualifying starts at 3, races at 6.
Sorry, no link.
They will also be at Canterbury Park September 29th.
That's all I got for now.

Went to the indoor flat track races last night. The track started off slippery as hell, just concrete floor, no real speed, the Coliseum, old and made for horse show, stunk of exhaust and fuel, the PA system was loud, glad I brought earplugs. I thought, "This is going to suck."
 But the track started coming in when the semis and finals started, the exhaust mostly cleared out, the racing got tight, and those guys were ripping pretty fast around a hockey rink sized track. It was great!
One of the highlights was a race between up and coming amateurs and the established pros. No kidding, a 12 year old kid won the race, he was smooth as hell, got the jump on the start, and led wire to wire. Standing ovation. Granted, his bike was a pro bike used by his brother who had to start it for him and hold while he got on, but he made it look easy once running!
It was great, I think a big success after 18 years of absence, and I would go back in a heartbeat!
Looking forward to the outdoor races this fall.

Great report. Imagine where that kid will be in a few years, a seasoned veteran before he can shave. For many years we had the Syracuse mile at the state fairgrounds and it was always a good race. Now I see the Weedsport Ny track has a big race July 7th this year, may have to look onto it.

Pittsburgh, let's make this biggest race of the year. Giving away big $$$$$, I believe free entry for out of state baggers. Going to be some big money grudge races,  get off the couch and see it live

I just saw this on IG last night. I know there are some fast street legal HD's on this site. Be cool if one of you went down to LA and took home the money.
