Tuesday Night Crits at UBC

To complement the last post, here's some info on the Tuesday night crit races. It's only $7 to race as long as you've got your Cycling BC licence, plus $13 for a number plate. These races go down at UBC near Thunderbird Stadium every Tuesday unless it's raining.

Thursday Night Crits in Richmond

Tonight I went out to the West 4th shop with T-Pick and Matt Kennedy, and met up with Meshkat for his famous Thursday night ride. The plan was to ride a loop of UBC on the way to the Richmond crit course. We got lost and went to Steveston, and missed the races. Next time I'm not gonna let that happen, nor should you...

Westside Classic - Provincal RR Champs

The Westside Classic was Sunday and once again it was the Provincial Road Race Championships and once again Claire made the podium solidifying her spot as one of BC's fastest women. She finished 3rd in a tight sprint with a tough women's field that was ripped apart by Catherine Pendrell on the climbs.

In the Men's 3/4 race Andrew finished 6th with Dave Groves somewhere around 10-12th and Ryan and Paul in the pack but most importantly intact after the big crash in the last corner. Ian contested his first big race of the season with the 3/4's and gained some valuable experience and hosted a wonderful post-race breakfast (pancakes!!!).

Haley raced her first ever road race this weekend and fought hard and finished with a good group in the Women's Cat 4 field. It sounded like she really enjoyed herself so maybe we'll distract her from the mud. For a little while anyhow...
