Cheddar Challenge '18

Human-Powered Vehicle Races


From I94 take HWY S (Washington Road) east about 5 miles and turn right onto 22nd, and make a left turn into Washington Park. Due to expressway construction, it is best to use the Hwy E exit from the north, and the Hwy 158 exit from the south.



The Washington Park Velodrome is a 333M banked oval located at the east end of the park. Enter the park off of 22nd street. There are restrooms and water by the pool and a parking lot. The velodrome surface is textured, but is not raceable when wet (racing will be cancelled by 11am if track is wet).


1K Time Trial--this is a standing start 3 laps with holders allowed for the start

Lap Races--The actual combination of racers in each race will depend on entries. The first racer in each race to complete the number of laps ends the race, and everyone else completes that lap that they are on, regardless of class. Racers are scored based on their placing in their class. This is not a time trial, so drafting of any other racer is allowed.

One fee, $20, for the day ($10 for Juniors), for each class raced, no license is needed 

See for the HPRA racing rules
