Series 3 / Week 3 - July 31, 2013

Whoa what a month! Mother nature has thrown some serious curve balls weather-wise, but you Wednesday Night Racers have proven time and time again that you can't, and won't, be psyched out by a few ominous looking clouds - respect. Not only that, but the racing has been so impressive (almost too impressive) these last few weeks that we kindly ask all racers to check in at the doping control tent following your race...kidding.

Okay, bad jokes aside, tomorrow's event is no joke. To cap off the month we’re heading back down south for an old favourite, a classic ride established by our friends at Speed Theory....

The Challenge:
You will be testing yourself in a 4.4km uphill individual TT, on a hill that you can hammer up not once, but twice! Rankings will be based on your average times between the two efforts and a "King of the Mountains" will be declared. So basically if you win...you will be awarded enough bragging rights and "street cred" to last approx 364 days...or until your friends, family, friends of family, neighbours dog, etc...get sick of hearing how awesome you are.

***Note: Three bonus points up for grabs if you can best Cody Godlonton's (Team Niklas) effort of 10:24...according to Garmin/Strava he is the best hill climber in the land! But you probably don't stand a chance against that kind of time anyway and might be better off at home on the couch??***

Race Start:
First riders off at 6:45 at 30 second intervals. 

The best parking is at 37th Street SW and 22X. This also makes for a great spot to start a short warm up ride before reaching the start line.  

As usual, we'll cover the finer details just before the start of the race; in the mean time you can post your questions in the comments section below. 

See you at the start line!
