Training Races Start Today!

Training races start today from Farr Horse park at 5:30. These 34-mile rides are a great way to hone your racing skills and punish your legs without mercy. Throw on your 'Just for Fun' jersey if you have one and head out just to try, there's sure to be several groups for all levels, just be wary of the sketchy riders :)
