WTNC Is Go! Sportif, uh...

Sorry folks, due to a lack of volunteers to run this weekend's Sportif race in Aldergrove, we have to cancel it.

If you pre-registered, you will get a refund shortly.

So that means our next race is on April 29, with the special early kick-off for the WTNC this year. First race is at Glenlyon in Burnaby, then UBC next week. Next Sportif is May 5, and thanks to the good people at Glotman-Simpson Cycling, we are all volunteered up for that day.

Our volunteer czar, Wilson, is still looking for warm bodies to fill out his Sportif rosters, so please fill out his form.

Remember: only you can prevent race cancellations. Only you.

WTNC Is Go! Sportif is Go!

Of course it is. Think we'd break 30 years of heritage?

New for 2014, we're starting the first race April 29, because we're excited.

This year, the series alternates between the Glenlyon (Burnaby) & UBC courses each week. Note that the race start times are particular to each course, so your event may have a different start time at UBC and Glenlyon (because of the differences in the courses, we run longer races, 3 waves, and 2 start times at Glenlyon).

In order to serve us better, price is now a still-pretty-good $10/race. Gotta pay for the van somehow.

The Race Book is still being updated, season pass pricing is getting sorted out, but the schedule is online now, at our glorious WTNC page.

PS: Sportif #1 is Easter Weekend, the race format is virtually identical to our Spring Series races, and you use the same number and timing chip. See you there.

Spring Series #1 cancelled due to weather

Sorry folks, it kills us to do this, but with a prediction of cold temperatures and falling snow on Sunday, we are making the tough call to cancel Spring Series race #1 this weekend. Next weekend's races will proceed as scheduled.

If you have registered for Aldergrove, we will automatically roll that over to the River Road race on Saturday, March 8. If that doesn't work for you, please email stuart.lynne@gmail.com to make other arrangements.

EV Introduces our Proud Supporters of DEVO program

We here at Escape Velocity pb Catalyst Kinetics are rightly proud of our DEVO program, and all it has accomplished so far. But our ambition is to make it, undisputably, the best program in the country of its kind (stretch goal: on the planet). And we can't do it alone.

So we are introducing the ‘Proud Supporters of DEVO’ (PSD) program. The PSD program invites Greater Vancouver race teams and cycling clubs who do not have youth programs, but share our passion for bike racing, to get involved in the future of our sport.

With this announcement we want to welcome our founding partner clubs and teams:
