Oh, hi there. If you haven't already noticed, our website has undergone a facelift for the 2016 season. We're still the same club you've come to know and love, and we hope that this little update makes it easier for you to get to know about us and what we do in the riding and racing community here in Vancouver.
Please, take some time to get to explore the new layout. If you find a bug or a dead link, however, please contact us and let us know.
With all of the enthusiasm that a monster truck rally announcer voice can convey, we'd like announce the impending start to the 2016 World Tuesday Night Championship series.
Please note a few important changes from last year:
- The alternating schedule between the Glenlyon and UBC courses has been slightly modified. Please refer to the schedule on the WTNC page.
- Commissaires will be present, which means that WTNC races are eligible for CyclingBC upgrade points. We'll keep a tally of points earned, but racers will need to follow the UCI Category Upgrade procedure from CyclingBC.
- Cycling BC upgrade points are completely separate from WTNC series points. The latter is tracked to determine cash prize payouts at the end of the season in August. Please refer to the WTNC page for points/prize structure.
As mentioned in our last #PSDEVO update, we recently welcomed Mercedes-Benz Vans Boundary to our support team. We are now pleased to announce that the van has arrived! Make sure to come check out our new ride at Spring Series or spot us around town. We would also like to extend a special thank you to Fasttrack Autobody of Richmond for supplying the paint job and graphics for our utility truck and trailors. With our new look fleet and your support we are certainly ready for a game changing year.
If you see us out on the road give us a wave!
We here at EV are excited by Cycling BC's revised points system, released yesterday. This goes hand-in-hand with our previously announced collaboration that will see commissaires at the Spring Series. The result is that Spring Series (and probably WTNC) races will bear upgrade points, and more importantly, there's a general commitment that as of now, both categories and the upgrade system will mean something.
For riders at the Spring Series, this means you will have to race your license category. Here's how that works with our fields:
A: Cat 1/2 Men, Cat 1 Women
B: Cat 3 Men, Cat 1/2 Women
C: Cat 4 Men, Cat 3 Women
D: Cat 4/5 Men, Cat 4 Women (and Provincial/Citizen/1-Day license holders)
U19/U17 Men and Women to race their license category
U15/U13 Men and Women to race with Cat 4/5 (exceptions can be requested from CBC by their coaches)
Masters race their license category.
