This weekend, July 2nd, is the annual Velo City tour in NYC, a multi-city velodrome series where participating track racers compete for tickets to the Cycle Messenger World Championships. (held this year in Warsaw, Poland)
You have to be a working courier to win tickets, but it’s an excellent time to watch some fierce amateur track racing at NYC’s only velodrome in Kissena, Queens.
