Event Information

The Island Youth Road and Track Series is racing at YOUR level, from beginner to junior national team hopeful. Practice real race skills and tactics as you race….drafting, cornering, attacking, chasing and sprinting.

Progress and race at your level: try different categories when you’re feeling stronger….or dial it down when you’re not. Some events include pre-race clinics and you’ll often see coaches in the bunches – skill-building in real time!

    • Five categories will be offered, and you choose which is best for you. A coaches’ panel will review the entries. Each category includes co-ed riders at similar speeds. And yes, you can change when you see who’s in your category.
      • A= strongest u19 boys, strongest u19 and u17 girls, strongest u17 boys, outlier* u15s
      • B= newer u19 boys, u17 boys, u19 girls, stronger u15 boys
      • C= most u15 boys, u17 girls, strongest u15 girls, strongest u13 riders
      • D= most u13s, newest u15 boys, and most u15 girls
      • E= u11, newer u13, u15, newest u17s
          * Outliers are exceptional early developers
