    Less than 24 hours until the Kilo at Northbrook! About 2 2/3 laps around the oval?
    That's 500 meters for women and juniors. 1 1/3 laps?

    I know it's early in the track season, but there's only so much time. What will you be doing? (Me? Probably just short of two minutes. Who said I was fast?)
    Race entry is only half price of the Thursday events...

    Registration starts at 6pm and is ongoing through the night.
    Heats of two start at 7pm.

    Come to the Kilo! Cheer on your friends as they take their first step to Elite Nationals!
    Try the time trial yourself! Road/cross/MTBs allowed!

    Beer after?

    Is that open to everyone? Non-track experienced too?

    Yeah I think it is open to everyone. You might want to call Marcus to triple-check.
    I know you can bring a road bike too.

    I signed up for a UCSF season license, but you can also get a day-pass too

    Went to the kilo last night at it was a ton of fun. Ends up for individual sprint events Cat5 can race too. Too bad I didn't know that beforehand otherwise I would've ditched work early. It was really cool to watch all the racers & see the different ways they attacked the event. I saw XXX racing out in force and they all looked really impressive.

    And to anyone who's concerned about whether their equipment is "track cool" enough ... I saw a guy get 1:15 on a fixed specialized langster w/ aero bars.
    Fantastic.

    nice report! Maybe you should MC at the velo...they need announcers! How much is the license fee for that job? Hopefully less than $60!
