Pack some heat ...

... we're gunnin' for the record.
Considering the horsepower that we've seen at the Wednesday Night Series races in the last couple of years and the straight forward nature of the course we feel that the course records for the Woodland TT simply will not do. Given that it's August and legs are in shape and the weather conditions look almost ideal, we're offering not only bonus points, but special prizes for whomever can set a new course record in their cateogory.

The Hall of Fame
Category A Jim Janzen, Bicisport 22:29 (2010)
Category B Jay Rankin, Speed Theory 24:38 (2010)
Category C Clarence Poon, Crankamsters 26:30 (2010)
Willy VanSevenant, Highwood 26:30 (2009)

Setup is regular TT so bring the full on gear, I'll leave my measuring tape and calipers at home and all you have to do is lay it all down. This Wednesday the 11th at the Woodland Meeting Spot.
The Woodland meeting spot is located at the junction of Woodland road and highway 1A just west of Bearspaw and before Lochend Road. There is a side road there (Twp Rd 255) off of Woodland where we'll set up. Ample parking is available along 255 and on Nagway road just to the east off Bearspaw Road. And of course, you could always ride out to the site from Calgary. Please try and spread the parking out so that everybody isn't all parked at the same spot in order to keep things low key with respect to the local population.

The course starts just west of Woodland Road and heads west along 1A towards Cochrane. After a few kilometres and just before you start to head down the hill into Cochrane we turn right on to Big Hill Road, around the corner and straight north on Range Road 40. A short time thereafter another right turn onto Twp Road 262 heads you back eastwards towards the finish about a kilometre before you get to Lochend road. It's a short ride back to the start from there.

As always I'd love to have a few volunteers to keep things safe and orderly so bring a friend, spouse, legal representative, parole officer, or golf buddy. We'll start shortly after 6:30 and I'll run 30s intervals to keep things moving. See ya then.
