Thursday Night Fireball Training Series

Join us each week on Grand Island as we partner with the Buffalo Bicycling Club to offer a high-paced, intense race training series. The races allow competitive-minded riders to develop criterium skills, cornering, pace lining, attacking, and race tactics. The more of these you attend, the better racer you will become. There will be both A and B group races each week.
