(If you have prizes owing to you from this year's WTNC read more on how to claim.)
Another year's edition of the The World Tuesday Night Championships is in the books, highlighted by the introduction of a new course at Glenlyon, a move necessitated by road construction at our traditional UBC course. Construction is now complete, and next year, we will have 2 courses to choose from. We are interested in any feedback you can provide about your course preference, or indeed, any matters concerning the WTNC on our feedback form.
So this weekend, there's a doubleheader to wrap up the Sportif Series for the year. You can still pre-reg if you hurry, saving $5/race (or you can be lazy and register on the day of. We'll take your money either way). It's a doozy of a parcours: the beloved Bradner and Murchie courses. This is the perfect pre-taper tune-up for either your GranFondo Whistler personal best, or your cyclocross season.
Note that the start time is 30 minutes earlier than usual for both races: Race start 10:00 AM, Sign-on opens 9:00 AM, and the Novice clinic starts at 10:30.
We'd also like to thank our host teams for this weekend: FulGas and Musette Caffè. Without them, these races wouldn't happen.
Winter is coming. So let's have some fun!

With the gracious help of our friends from Fulgas and Musette Caffè, August 24 and 25 will have Sportif races, at Bradner and Murchie Road. This will be a tidy way to wrap up your road season, or better yet, a final tune-up before the Gran Fondo Whistler, which you're totally doing, right?
Registration is now open, so go over to the Sportif page for complete info and online reg links.
In other news, one of the two Tobins in our club (the taller, dirtier one) says that there will be cyclocross, and it will be October 19, and it will be part of some Superprestigious series (pay no attention to the tentative August date on the CX calendar if it's still showing there, we really will be hosting a race on October 19). So save the date, and tell the taller, dirtier Tobin he should buy a foam machine to get clean.
