This is a velodrome series that gives hard working couriers a chance to take their track bikes to a place they were meant to go and try for tickets to the CMWC, which happens to be in Toronto this year.

It was also open to city riders, opening up lots of opportunity for people to test out their skills on the track out in Kissena Queens.

Next stop: Los Angeles April 10th and San Francisco May 10th
