Prepare yourself for the Time of Trial

Can you handle the race of truth?

Next Saturday (August 9), EV will once again host the BC Time Trial Championships in Squamish. 38.5 km of suffering, what's not to like? Online registration via Karelo is a mere $45, with the first 150 registrants getting a delicious BBQ lunch to go with all that suffering. Day-of registrants pay a punitive $65, and probably won't have signed up in time to get a lunch ticket, so you know what to do, right? Oh yeah: Juniors are a super-cheap $25, but should still register online so as to get in on the BBQ.

In case you're wondering, the Sea to Sky Highway has already reopened, so there should be no access problems for next weekend.

Scenes from Superweek

EV and dEVo were all over Superweek, whether it was the 1/2 team (and several other Cat 2s in the club) hanging on as ProTour riders worked the peloton, or our women facing off against some truly global competition in their races, or the hordes of EV members who volunteered: you drove, set up, tore down, crowd-controlled, or helped out in myriad other ways.

I'm so proud of you kids!

Ahem. I was inspired to post this because M. Delisle sent along several beautiful photos of EV riders trooping the colours. More after the break. Enjoy!

Team dEVo and EV rack up more podiums at the 2008 BC BMX Championships.

When the gate dropped at this years BMX Champs, that little reminder on the sleeves of every dEVo and EV BMX jerseys (explosive) worked its magic and the podiums followed.
In BMX we race for plates, the kind that you put on the front of your race bike. They are kind of a status symbol where Number 1 means you’re the top dog in your class.
For 2008, dEVo/EV made their mark and came home with an impressive number of awards in the following classes including a triple podium in 9 year old male and a double #1 plate for the unstoppable Kyle Murphy in 20” and Cruiser.
