Over the BC Day long weekend Cannondale pb Fortius traveled to Elma, Washington for the Rapha 2016 Northwest Juniors Classic Stage Race. This 2 day, 3 stage race is specifically tailored towards younger riders and includes riders from the Pacific Northwest, Saskatchewan, Yukon, Idaho, Montana, and Colorado. At the start of each year our athletes set goals, train and make this race a focus of their season. With your support this year's race was our most successful yet with 1 leaders jersey, 5 GC podium finishes, 13 stage podium finishes and many more riders in the top 10 for each stage.
As part of the annual BC Superweek Youth Series our team competed in six races; The Tour de Delta Criterium, Glenlyon Tuesday Nighter, Gastown Grandprix, Giro di Burnaby, Poco Grand Prix and The Tour De White Rock. This series gives young riders a chance to compete and test their skills on the same circuit as the professionals and is a highlight of the youth cycling year. We had a tremendous turn out of Devo racers and some great results. (See slide show below or click here)
Watching the BC Superweek events one might think it almost looks easy to pull off running a cycling race, but of course it is not. Behind the scenes EscapeVelocity pb Fortius played an critical support role to success of numerous events during BC Superweek.
