The Sacramento Valley Velodrome Association holds regular races in Midtown, but they don’t have an actual velodrome to race in.
The racers have 15 second sprint races on rollers in The Hot Italian, a pizza place on 16th Street. And they do it to raise money for a proposed velodrome. Of an estimated $4 million needed to build the cycling race track, enthusiasts have raised $20,000 over the past year.
