    Back for the 14th year, the VRD's Spring Short Track Bike Series gets riders ready for the upcoming bike series. No points or prizes... just a fun way to get in shape after a long winter. Races will take place on a short, dirt loop and racers have 20 minutes to ride as many laps as possible in that time. Kids races will be five and 10 minutes in length.
