Calistoga Speedway to Switch from Cars to Bicycles for One Amazing Night in April

Calistoga, CA (March 5, 2018) – Inspired by the cult-classic, coming of age film Breaking Away and Indiana University’s Little 500 race, CampoVelo is proud to announce “Saturday Night at the Speedway.” The feature event of the evening will be a team relay race around the half-mile track. Teams of four will send racers around the track, one at a time, in hopes of becoming the fastest team to get all four riders across the finish line. Instead of a baton to pass in the transition zone, riders will pass single-speed bikes. Prizes will be awarded for first, last, and most laughable! Proceeds from the event will help support the Napa Valley Vine Trail, a non-profit coalition dedicated to building a class 1 paved bike path from Calistoga to the Vallejo Ferry. To date, 19.5 miles have been constructed of the 47-mile plan.

Attendees can join a team or just come out and enjoy the action. No bike necessary. Detroit Bikes has provided their made-in-the-USA single-speed bikes for the race.

Some notable teams that have already formed are: High-Speed Chefs with chefs Chris Cosentino, Jeff Mahin, Bryan Voltaggio, and Michael Voltaggio and Pro Royalty, a mixed team of pro cyclists Ted King, Alison Tetrick, Yuri Hauswald, and Janel Holcomb. The ever-entertaining Bob Roll will be the emcee for the night, providing his special kind of color commentary for the races. Attendees are encouraged to join a team or form their own team of four for only $10 per rider.

Not riding? No problem. Enjoy the racing, live music featuring the sassy Oakland based band the T Sisters trio, and a fun evening outdoors featuring Napa Valley food trucks, wineries, and breweries.
