2016 Mens Little 500
From Group RTVS Video Archive on January 11th, 2018
The Little 500 is the largest collegiate bike race in the United States. Modeled after the Indianapolis 500, riders compete in four-person teams around a quarter-mile cinder track at Bill Armstrong Stadium. The men’s race is 200 laps — 50 miles — and the women’s race is 100 laps — 25 miles.
The race began in 1951 as a way to raise scholarship money for students working their way through college. Since that first race, IUSF has given away over $2 million to deserving undergrads.
