|I've tried to google up some Las Vegas road races and I can never find ANYTHING. Is it true that a city of over a million doesn't put together any racing (Compare all of the racing in and around Salt Lake City)?
I live in Reno but would like to schedule a double-whammy when I take the fam down to LV to visit the grandparents and get some racing in.

What about club races?

|So I grew up here (in LV) and now live in Reno (east coasters and geographically remedial folks, those two cities are 440 miles/7 hours of hauling a$$ across the desert apart). We don't all gamble and live in casinos, REALLY! Oh well, I'm sure you Californians are constantly trying to explain how you aren't liberal hippies or you southerners aren't all redneck Bubbas, so I should get used to it, I guess. =)
That said, I've actually heard the keirin track idea kicked around for Vegas, especially given the big number of Asian tourists.
But let's step back a minute. Every time I go down there, I see lots of fit looking people doing the Red Rock loop. Don't you guys race locally, or do you all drive to AZ and CA to race?

don't forget the sunscreen on the back of your neck or above your crack if you don't wear bibs and jersey isn't nice a long in back.
