Wednesday Night Series - Racing Series 2

Hi everyone. Speed Theory will be hosting the second series of races for Crankmasters WNS. They are still in the planning stages and below you will see the thoughts so far. We always encourage you to race as much as you can, this series also gives you an oportunity to give back and volunteer. Depending on the type of race I will need between 2 and 4 volunteers each Wednesday. So please comment if you can volunteer and also let me know which date.

We are open to suggestions on venues and race type so if you have any ideas please comment as well.

June 13 - road race, going to use this one

Early days but I can volunteer for the July 4 HC. Cheers- Marc Enter

AlanO said...

I'm available June 13. The area around the finish line of tonights TT there may be a good crit course. I can check it out and provide specifics later

Reinier Paauwe said...

Any chance we can do a TT on the same course we're planning for JayLap?

mikehealy said...

Reinier, where is the JLap TT course?

Rick C said...

What about a real TT - 40 km?

There will be three Time Trials during superweek. The COP hill climb of the TdB. Then the Cranky ITT in Aridrie (which will be the same course as the event they just held) and ours, which is a 7km hill climb leaving COP, onto 16th, onto Sarcee, up Bow Trail, and onto Old Banff Coach Road. I don't think our Hill Climb would be smart to do without pylons and police.

Today I did the loop around Highway 8, roundabout, Highway 22, Springbank Road, Lower Springbank Road, 101 Street back to Highway 8. It's the route of the old Elbow Valley Half Ironman. 5 right hand turns, one left hand turn, no stop signs (well one but you stay right). I think 42k. We could start finish where we finished the 2 up TT this week. I think that would be a nice change. What does everyone think? Only need one person to slow riders down from 101st right turn onto Highway 8.
