Priddis Team Road Race - Results!

What a great night for racing - sunny, warm, mild wind and post race beers.  You can't ask for much more than that!

I quick shout out to say thanks to our volunteers.  It's because of them we can get the races done safely and without incident.  Darcy, Cody, Peter and Stephanie - thanks a lot guys!  It is much appreciated.

The race was sensational and the results incredibly close.  While we all won in some sort of way just for being out there, we can have only one winning team.  Sooo....

Congratulations to the pink team of Jason, Karel, Pat, Dawn, Jean, Rob.  Well done guys!  With 3 riders in the lead group and their other 3 riders all together they capitalized on bonus points.

Priddis Team Road Race - Final 2015 WNS of the season!

First the important stuff - post race they'll be a WNS end of season gathering at Dixons Pub House. Everyone is welcome to come celebrate a great season of racing.

Dixons Pub House
15425 Bannister Rd SE
Calgary‎ AB‎ T2X 3E9

For our last week we're going back to our attempted week 3 race - the Team Road Race. Teams will be created after sign-on and will be organized based on overall WNS standings. The race organizer may make team roster adjustments at his discretion as well. Please try and sign in by 6:30 to allow time to setup the teams.

The race will be a mass start with all teams starting at 6:45. Points will be awarded based on your finishing place, ie: 1st place = 1 point, 10th place = 10 points, etc. The team with the least amount of points will win. There will be bonus point deductions for teammates that finish together. ie - 2 teammates = 1 point deduction, 4 teammates = 3 point deduction.  Finishing together means no more than a couple seconds gap between teammates at the finish line.  The intent of the deductions is to encourage the teams to work and ride together.

Parking is in Priddis by the start/finish line.
Sign-on opens at 6:00
Race starts at 6:45

Strava Route here.

If you can volunteer for the race it would be appreciated. Please leave a comment if you can.

WNS Super Crit - Results!

Super Crit Results

The Super Crit was another great success. Though few will question whether it’s actually a crit at 2 km’s long, the 4 corners and fast pace certainly fits the bill, along with the Primes! Thanks to all those who showed up to suffer and sprint it out in the last crit of the season! Huge thanks again to all the corner marshals and volunteers. Andrew, Jack, Jeff, Cody, Peter, and Erik. Kudos! Also, big thanks to Campione and Crankmasters for their support with some goodies for the Primes! Again, any comments are always welcome and appreciated! Also, any typos in the results, or anything you disagree with let us know!

We have a few copies of videos of the sprint finishes too if you’re interested...

Series 3, Week 4 - Springbank Crit

This week, we will be hosting the final crit of the season, the Springbank Super-Crit. At 2km's in length, it leaves tons of time for attacks to be made and matches to be burned. As mentioned in past iterations of this race, it is a very safe, wide course, with great pavement (the dirty pavement on the 3rd straight is much cleaner this year), huge corners, and grassy run outs. Sure to be a fast crit again this year!

Strava Route here.

We will use the same schedule as last year:

6:30PM - “C Group” Starts. 20min + 1 lap
7:00PM - “B Group” Starts. 30min + 1 lap
7:40PM - “A Group” Starts. 35min + 1 lap

Parking: Plenty of parking around, between the Church, and the schools. The lot at Corner 1 is generally best, just watch out for traffic and riders if entering and exiting mid-race.

Volunteers: If you can volunteer please sign up here. On race day come see Adam Pugh or Erik Loewen at the start line at ~6-6:15pm ish for the details.

Looking forward to some awesome crit racing - the last of the season, not to mention a great prep race/workout before cross season starts!

See you Wednesday!

Race Cancelled - Priddis Road Race

We're going to have to pull the plug for the race tonight.  The weather is too unpredictable and its not looking good in the Priddis area in the next few hours.  Its better to be safe than sorry.

Next week we're having a Criterium in the west.  Same course as a couple years ago if you did that one.  We might revisit this course in our last week.
