2010 HPRA Florida Challenge
 2011 HPRA Florida Challenge
Saturday 2/26 and Sunday 2/27 at Brian Piccolo Park
9501 Sheridan Street, Pembroke Pines, Florida
Come one, come all!  First HPRA race of the 2010 season in sunny, balmy Florida!  Combine a weekend of racing with a vacation, or vice versa!  2 full days of racing to get more bang for your buck.  Prizes, displays and the opportunity to meet other bent enthusiasts and see an excellent variety of human powered machines and their engines. The race weekend is one week after the Sebring 12/24 hour race and one week before the Catrike Rally.

For those not wanting to race on Saturday, Atlantic Bicycles will be organizing a group ride. The ride will be approximately 20 miles at a moderate pace. Meet at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday February 26, 2011 in the Parking lot near the Velodrome for a ride that will start at 8:00 a.m.. The ride will finish in time to watch the races on the Crit Course but those wanting to race on Saturday should forego the ride to register
and get their bike inspected before the races.
