The inaugural ECCC Track Season, organized our own Josh Schwartz, gets underway next weekend. The ECCC season will feature three race weekends, shortly followed by Collegiate Track Nationals in Coloroado Springs.
The season schedule is:
Aug 22-24 Kissena, NYC
Aug 30-31 Valley Preferred Cycling Center, Trexlertown, PA
Sep 06-07 New England Velodrome, Londonderry, NH
Sep 11-13 Collegiate Track Nationals @ Colorado Springs
The team has spent this summer preparing at the New England Velodrome in Londonderry, New Hampshire. Pictures from a coaching session several weeks ago have been posted.
This Saturday is the last coaching session before the ECCC starts next week, so let’s try to make attendance as good as possible! We’ll be concentrating on team stuff: figuring out starting orders for team sprints and team pursuits, talking about pacing and exchanges, etc.
If you’re planning on racing at ECCC or Nats, or even if you’re just interested in track in general, it’s highly recommended to come out. The team will be covering all expenses for the trip.
We’ll send two groups: one leaving at 8am to race in the morning and do coaching in the afternoon, and one leaving at 12:30 to come up just for coaching. Expect coaching to finish around 4-4:30 and to get home around 5-5:30. Please sign up using the logistics form.
The deadline is Friday, 6pm.
