OK, some people are having trouble finding the right link for Provincials, so just in case, here’s the link for the 2019 Brian Jessel BMW Road and TT Provincials pre-reg:
We are so excited to be working with Brandon, presenting sponsor of the 2019 Seymour Challenge. So, we were thinking, what kind of fun promo would draw riders to enter this biking event? A bike draw, so to speak...so we’re thinking about what we could draw up that a cyclist would prize...we’ll let you know if we come up with something good.
While we figure that out, how about some training?
Seymour Challenge Training Ride #1 is happening. Saturday, June 1st. Roll from Musette Caffe at 8:30 AM, or meet the ride at 9:15 at the Park Hut. Ride is open to everyone, and is a great way to tune up for the most fun you can have while suffering at your threshold power!
So you may have heard, we have a really full men’s Cat 4 field this year. If you race in the WTNC Cat 4 or Cat 5 fields, please read on. If not, you can go back to your usual business.
For safety reasons, we need to put a cap on field sizes at the WTNC. The Cat 4 field, especially at Glenlyon, is hitting against that limit. So we’re taking action.
Starting next week, we will refer to the Cat 4 and Cat 5 fields as “4a” and “4b”. As far as we are concerned, this does not designate a better or worse field, just two separate groups of Cat 4 men racing each night. Any rider with a Men 4 license may enter either group. In concert with Cycling BC, we can tell you that both groups will receive upgrade points as usual, and points in either group will count for upgrades towards Cat 3.
But to enforce the field limit, we need to take some steps.
As of next week, we will have the following limits on pre-registration and day-of registration in 4a:
1. Did you know you can now pre-register for Provincials? It’s true! Link on the Provincials page.
2. Did you know EV’s gift to grassroots cycling, Stuart Lynne, is Internet Famous? It’s true! Read all about it.
3. There’s also some other interview of some other guy, but it’s good because it’s about WTNC.
So, here’s the now actually correct 2019 schedule for the beloved World Tuesday Night Championships, which has the right dates for SuperWeek, and thus the right dates of no racing:
Some quick notes:
- First race is April 30, and then most Tuesdays after that
- No race during SuperWeek, no race after SuperWeek (it’s THAT super).
- Last Tuesday Nighter will be a special event, as usual it will not count for points for the prestigious WTNC omnium.
- Note the UBC schedule, with four races on select dates.
- Complete details shortly on the WTNC page, but expect only minor changes from last year.
And while we have you here, the Good Friday Race will complete our Spring Classics Series on, uh, Good Friday. But we also have a Stage Race in May, and so the fun never stops!
