We have a brand new racing series focused on lower category racers and novices. The Sportif Series is 5 new races in the warmer months, a cheap and cheerful way to gain experience riding fast in a pack. These are not just great races, they're also a gentle introduction to racing, and the distances and time of year make them excellent preparation for the fondo rides later in the year. For Novices, your entry includes a 1-hour learn-to-race clinic before the race itself.
Yep, it's on like Donkey Kong, it's hotter than the Arabian Desert*, it's online registration!
Do it now, do it for the kids, do it to avoid yet another annoying line-up on race day. But get on it, because you love the Spring Series, and the Spring Series loves you!
*Hotness is metaphorical; not an actual guarantee of warm weather.
Vision 2020 and 2014 membership structure announced!
Vision 2020 (launched in 2013) is a comprehensive reinvestment in youth cycling in British Columbia by the Escape Velocity Cycling Club and its partners. Vision 2020 represents a complete redesign of Escape Velocity’s long-standing junior program bringing athletes, coaches and parents together to provide developmentally appropriate cycling experiences between the ages of 10 and 18. Under the Vision 2020 model, an athlete born in 2002 starting in the newly revamped dEVo program in 2013 will have the opportunity to participate in eight years of supported development across 4 separately organized program stages, graduating from the program in 2020!
EV is delighted, once again, to host the annual Toy Ride, where we invite racing (or merely racy) cyclists from all clubs (or no club) to join us in raising money for the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, an organization that provides food vouchers and toys for low income families in the Vancouver area.
But this year, we're doing it a bit differently. The Toy Ride will be this year's Grand Prix of Cyclocross, which means you have some options about how you spend your morning.
EV wants you maybe! "Read More" for complete details:
The EV Race Series Organizer will be responsible for the overall planning and scheduling of the weekend road races that Escape Velocity will run in 2013. There will be 12 to 16 days of racing starting with the traditional Spring Series in March, an additional series of 3-5 races in April, May and June, and possibly a Summer Stage race on the BC Day long weekend in August.
