First, please set your clocks forward one hour tonight, because you don't want to be that guy: the one who shows up Sunday morning at 10:30 instead of 9:30, and has to watch the peloton ride away while you're trying to pin a number on.

Second, EV wins! And takes fifth. New Escape 1-2 team member Andrew Kyle showed that some of those mountain bike skills do cross over, and with great support and teamwork from the rest of the Red Brigade, he managed to take the victory.

Also, we finished all four races today. See what nice things happen when you kids stop crashing so much?

Spring Series - Race 1 results

Today was the beginning of the Escape Velocity/dEVo Spring Series. All the races started. However, not all the races finished.

Unfortunately, we had to stop the novice race and the A-group race due to the crashes in the other groups. It was simply too dangerous for us to keep the other races going with ambulances and riders down on the course. We are sorry that the A and novice riders didn't get to finish, but it was the right call to make in order to prevent further chaos.

I hope everyone comes out to the races next weekend! Zero Avenue and Armstrong are on the menu.

Update: B Group results revised. Jake and Guy's stealthy and unfamiliar bright-red EV outfits caused us to miss them in the first results listing.

Here are the results:

Yeah, I can't wait either.

We have some important announcements regarding the Spring Series:

1) One-day licenses will be available during sign-on. So if you're interested in racing but not ready for the commitment of a season license, we're there for you. That said, if this describes you please consider the new Citizen License, which is only $50 ($40 for members of a Cycling BC club).

President Gord reminds me that cycling in Ontario no longer ends in the winter, it now moves indoors. And dEVo was there.

As Jeremy likes to call him, Jacob "the flying squirrel" Schwingboth has just competed at the Forest City Velodrome Winter Nationals at the 138m indoor track in London Ontario. Curtis Jung, another dEVo phenom, was also there competing, along with Ben Cowburn.
