Little 500 at Indiana University in April every year dates back to 1951 and is modeled after the Indianapolis 500 race. Since it's inception, the event has evolved from a single bike race to a weeklong party in which college kids across the state descend on Bloomington. Despite the party atmosphere infecting the student population, competitors in the race have continued to train year-round in order to battle it out on the track once a year. The event even has a major movie about it from 1980, "Breaking Away".
