ProCycling US Grand Prix of Sprinting

When: June 22-24 2012

In high school, I dated a cross-country runner. Ever the dutiful girlfriend, I'd show up at competitions, cheer him on during the few seconds it took for him to pass me by, then sit on my ass waiting for him to finish and drive us home. Road cycling races offer the same amount of limited excitement, at an even faster pace. And that's why this weekend's second ProCycling US Grand Prix of Sprinting at the Colorado Springs Velodrome (Memorial Park, 250 S. Union Blvd., uscyclinggrandprix.com) is so exciting. Not only can spectators watch elite athletes, many on their way to the London Summer Olympic Games, but the thrills never end as the riders circle round and round. Join in on the fun at 7 tonight (as well as tomorrow and Sunday), $10 for adults, $5 for kiddos under 12. — Kirsten Akens

Price: $5-$10
