Through the WheelOpening Track weekend at the Kissena Velodrome was co-presented by the Kissena Cycling Club and Brooklyn Velo Force.  There's a new interest emerging on the track this season.  BVF decided the best way to experience was to race it and help to run the 2 day event.  With over 85 entrants, it was the largest field of participants at any Kissena track event.  The racing wasn't too bad either for BVF, with Chris B winning the overall Master's event and new track riders  Alex, Rob, and Scott riders winning the CAT5 event 1-2-3.

Track is the best thing... ever!  What took us so long?!
