Maple Bay – Cancelled

24 Jul

Unfortunately the Maple Bay Road July 27th is cancelled. The principle organizers and many of the volunteers from both teams are away. We have explored many options for other to take the lead and to find volunteers, but simply don’t have the manpower to put in the race.

Remaining Races

22 Jul

It has just been noted that this Wednesday’s Velodrome VCL (July 24th) is missing from the Schedule posted on this site (although, it does properly show on the IRC site). Registration an open-track starts of 6:00PM, with racing starting around 6:30.

Saturday’s Maple Bay RR is still uncertain – final status will be conveyed by tomorrow evening, we apologize for the late notice and confusion.

Lastly, Sunday marks the return of the Observatory Hill Climb – come out and test your legs against the relatively inoffensive grade. It would be great to have a huge turnout for the return of this popular cycling training location. Come out and show your respects and appreciation for the venue operators!!

Results and Season Standings

21 Jul

All Race Results and Season Standings have now been added to the IRC page – click here.

The 2019 VCL race season is quickly drawing to a close, with only one weekend remaining. We are still holding our breath that organization of Saturday’s fantastic Maple Bay Road Race will come together in the next few days (stay tuned), and on Sunday we have the long-lost Observatory Hill Climb. This last venue has been absent from the calendar for many years, and we are super excited to have it back, so, we are hoping to have a really strong turn-out!!!!! Cheap, painful, disgusting, and oh so much fun – let’s see you all out there.

Results – Newton Heights – July 3, 2019

Results for Sunday’s race have been posted here. Thanks to Karl, and Oak Bay Bikes for putting on such a great race, and thanks to all the volunteers that make the whole thing possible!

Additionally, results for the previous few races are also available on the IRC site – click here. I am having some technical issues, so, full results for Metchosin and Mount Doug may show as incomplete – we are working on correcting the issue.

CANCELLED – Air Force Crit – CANCELLED

FYI – there has been a change in base command, and unfortunately the crit that was scheduled for July 6th has been cancelled. Thanks so much to Arin (Fort Street Cycle) and his cohorts for all the work they did to get it approved with previous command – we were all REALLY looking forward to this new venue.
