The event, slated for August 18-23, will be open for online registration at Sports Base Online beginning Sunday, June 21.

“The Colorado Velodrome Association (CVA) is thrilled to host the USA Cycling Masters Track National Championships,” said CVA spokesman Pat McDonough. “As North America’s fastest velodrome, we are excited for the opportunity to see many new world records broken here.”

When masters track nationals were last held in Colorado Springs in 2006, the high altitude and fast racing surface set the stage for 13 world records to be broken.

CVA will soon announce expanded training times for the two weeks prior to the national championship event, meaning that riders from around the country will be able to maximize their training opportunities at the 7-Eleven Velodrome.
