Our big brother Planet X is heavily steeped in track traditions. So when we became aware that the Alpenrose Velodrome needed help we decided to bring awareness through our social channels.
This winter after thorough power washing of the velodrome, we could see the deteriorating concrete that had been masked by years of layers of paint. It was obvious that substantial work needed to be done to keep the velodrome running. To fix the problems, the straights have been replaced. In the fall, the apron will be removed and replaced as well. This project will make almost a new velodrome and will keep Alpenrose running for the next 20-30+ years. We need the support of the racing community to fund this project.
Please make a tax-deductible donation to support the current renovations at Alpenrose Velodrome. We’ve raised approximately $38,000 of $48,000 to fix the straights. We need another $50,000 to replace in the apron in the fall of 2012.
Order an awesome jersey to support the velodrome! Castelli created this jersey to raise money for the resurfacing of Alpenrose Velodrome. They are $100 ($60 from each jersey goes directly to the velodrome renovations). Men’s and Women’s full-zip jerseys are available. Act now! They are only available until the end of May. The jerseys will ship in July.
Please refer to the size chart, make sure you know what size is right before you order. The jerseys are “trainer cut” which is between race cut and club cut.
Here is the link to Castelli’s online ordering site.
