Are you excited for the Brian Jessel Provincial Road Race and TT Championships? You should be!
Our updated page has important information for you.
Most important: The TT has moved to a new venue, the Warp Speed TT course, based out of Aldergrove Lake Park. (Sign-in for this race is at the same place as the road race, details on the event page and in the tech guide).
Almost as important: first TT starts (paracycling) will be at 10:10. This is later than previously scheduled.
Please familiarize yourself with the new course, which will be nominally 18 km long. Riders will do either 18 km or 36.8 km (2 laps), depending on category.
Please familiarize yourself with the route ahead of time, and look over how the turnaround will be handled at the start/finish end. RACERS ARE ULTIMATELY RESPONSIBLE FOR KNOWING THE COURSE AND KNOWING THEIR LAP COUNTS.
Registration has been enthusiastic, but you still have a chance to get the pre-reg price today. And yeah, we will also have day-of registration, if you’re bad at planning.
Provincials: we had the wrong course linked on our website for a while, the correct course is the similar-but-different Atomic Double Counter-Clockwise, please enjoy this new extra-painful routing. Registration is now open, you should totally register, this is a great event with two great venues, and we promise to paint wayfinding arrows on the TT course.
WTNC: we’re back at Glenlyon tomorrow, weather permitting (and it looks very permissive indeed right now). This is a note that we now have a very large M4 field and a small M5 field. Cat 4 men are eligible to race in either field; this is our gentle hint that if you are racing in the M4 field and have any inclination to switch to the M5 group, please do so. This week we will keep an eye on the M4 field size and may impose a field limit; if we don’t have enough voluntary moves from M4 to M5, then we will impose involuntary moves on some riders.
Reasons you should move to the M5 field:
It has no pity, and no remorse. The Seymour Hill Climb is back on the calendar for 2018.
This classic climb is 12.2 km of truth, and 1000 m of gain.
Further details coming soon, but for now, make sure you're free the morning of August 19th.
