Well officially it wasn’t fall this past weekend but it sure did feel like it. Cool temps and brisk breezes gave a feeling of fall to Saturdays Race. Another great turn out this weekend and Velocity’s momentum is growing. Also a huge thank you to Jordan, who offered us her spectacular vocals for the National Anthem to kick off this weekends racing. Velocity BMX is part of NE Velodrome and Cycle park located on Grenier field Road in Londonderry, NH.

The great racing started with Moto 1, Haley, Rosalie, and Elisabeth got the fans excited with quite a bit of back and forth action.

Richard Bell enjoying the comfortable temperatures shows up 1st for 4, and Jonathan “the Jet” Dufresne shows why it’s important to stay on the crank finishing 2nd in the 2nd and 3rd motos. Robert Nieves with a couple 2nd’s, Brad Sidilau completes his return to racing with a great showing, and Vance Spina hangs tight with the pack racing hard.
