Thursday Night Racing
6:30 pm to dusk every Thursday unless it rains
Registration starts at 5:00 pm
May 5th to September 29th

The changes that happened at Alpenrose last year will still be in place next year. There will no longer be Sprint Nights on Thursdays. Sprinters can test themselves during Fast Twitch Friday sessions.

The first three Thursday nights will focus on timed events: Kilo/500M TT, Pursuit, 200M TT & Team Sprints.

After that, all Thursday night racing will be mass start racing. The first Thursday of each month will be scheduled with a single long points race for each group. Other nights will have 3 mass start races for each group and a madison. The mass start races are a mixed bag each night and can include races like miss-n-outs, win-n-outs, points, tempo, snow ball, avalanche, unknown distance, paced-points, scratch, and grudge-match. After the first week in September, there will be only madison racing.
