We got into the Banff Stage Race !! and ST Cycling picks up new Cat2 rider.

Well, apparently we got the last wildcard slot for the Road Race in Banff on June 22nd !! This is very good news for ST Cycling. Our crew will show up fit and ready to hammer. This will be a high-profile event and good exposure for the club. All Cat3 - 5 riders should be racing the TT and/or Crit on Sat. to continue our dominate position on top of the Alberta Road Race scene. And our Cat2 crew will try our best to represent in the stage race.

The proposed 6 man team will be: Jared, Kyle, Alex (pending upgrade), Rod, Trev, and .....

ST Cycling picks up Chad Kozak. Cat 1 cyclist and Tour de Whiterock Criterium winner in 2000
Here is a list of some of Chad's accomplishments. I think it will be pretty obvious who the rest of us will be working for during the race. I personally am super excited to have a team to race with and wil give everything I have to set up Chad for a good showing! Alex and I had an awesome Saturday workout just talking about this race. WE ARE PUMPED !!

I was planning to do the Banff Races on Saturday then do the Sky's ride to Calgary on the Sunday.

Maybe I'll stay to watch the RR instead.
