On Friday night, June 26, 2015, the Ten Mile Men's Race record at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center was broken.
The Men's Ten Mile record was last set in 1999, at 18:56:71 by Jamie Carney.
That record fell tonight, Friday, June 26, 2015, when Bobby Lea bettered that time in a spectacular bid to set a new record. The official time: 18:12.61.
Interestingly enough Bobby Lea posted this comment to his Twitter account on Thursday:

10 Mile on the schedule for tomorrow night @thevelodrome. I'm thinking it might be time to try breaking a track record!
He indicated he wanted it and I never for one minute doubted that it was within him to accomplish anything he set out to do.
This is the bike he rode to a new track record in the Ten Mile.

Congratulations Bobby Lea on setting a new Ten Mile Track record at the Valley Preferred Cycling center. I have a feeling you are going to be on the podium at the upcoming 2016 Olympic games. I am extremely pleased to have the privilege of calling you my friend.
And so it goes...
