This series is designed to help groms learn how to race safely. They will line up, and start their race at the same time as the Prairie City Race Series for adults, but Groms will have their own separate short-track course. Racers will do as many laps as they can in 25 minutes

Any grom who is interested in racing should register, attend the pre-ride, and try a lap. If (s)he does not feel comfortable racing at this point, we will happily refund the entry fee.

Please Note: If you race in the NorCal High School Cycling League, we ask that you limit involvement with this race series to cheering on other groms! NorCal racers are big-time, and this series is designed to help newer groms gain the skills and confidence needed to reach your level!


All races will be held at Prairie City State Recreation Area.
Directions to the Race

Parking is free. Once you enter the park, please follow the signs to the race venue.
