6/8/2019 to 6/9/2019     Manchester Medley HPRA race weekend Update
Location: North Manchester, Indiana
Description:

Manchester Medley HPRA Race Weekend

June 8-9, 2019

North Manchester, Indiana

 

Join us for the 14th annual Northern Indiana HPRA race weekend. Races on both days will be held on a wide .35-mile 2-lane paved drive around the local high school. Smooth pavement and fairly wide corners make this a good course for all HPRA classes (although challenging for streamliners). Below is the tentative schedule of events.

 

HPRA classes and rules apply (see http://www.recumbents.com/hpra/, helmets & mirrors mandatory). Regular entry fee is $10/day or $15 for both days; special fee for first-time HPRA racers is $1/day! Prize money given for first/second/third place winners in each class (Stock, Streetliner, Streamliner, Junior, Women, Trike, and Tandem). If there are 4 or more female trikers, there will be a separate Women’s Trike category.
