General Info
The original series was founded in 1985 by Andy Callahan the original owner of Oakley Cycles, and managed for nearly 20 years by Chief Referee Chuck Doll. In 2004 Bill Lorenz took over the series when Oakley Cycles dropped their involvement and it became a part of the QCW repertorie of events. 

All riders and spectators are welcome to this friendly and competitive event. Located on a slope the 1km oval course rises and descends approximately 75 feet per lap. The surface is fairly smooth with one slight corner and one speedy downhill with a couple of serious bumps, followed by an uphill sprint with the sun at your back. It is also closed to traffic and perfect for both new and experienced racers.

Race Format
The weekly races and overall series are run as a points race, similar to what would normally be run on a velodrome:

  • Riders sprint every 5 laps, (every 4 laps in the 16K) with the first 4 riders being awarded points 5, 3, 2, 1.
  • The middle and final sprints are worth double points – 10, 6, 4, 2.
  • The rider with the most points at the end of the night wins that night.
  • Points are cumulative over the 5 week series; the rider with the most points after 5 weeks wins the series.
  • All riders who register are awarded 2 points weekly.
  • Ties on total points go to the rider who scored points latest in the race.
  • Any riders who lap the field will receive a 20 point bonus (except the 16k).
  • The highest points earner who is NOT a Men Category 1-2 rider will win a weekly prize and series prize, but they can only score points by being in the top 4 across the line on sprint laps.
  • Points sprints are announced with a bell.
