One week before the Prairie-Roubaix is the Airdrie Adrenalin 20km ITT


This event is hosted by the Calgary Crank Masters and is a great casual event. I highly recommend these as an introduction to pure bike racing if you haven't done one before. This would be a great prep for Prairie-Roubaix and would give you a base to know how fast you can cover 20km in spring.

DescriptionStart time is 11 AM sharp so plan on being at the meeting location no later than 10:30 AM MDT to allow for registration and a warm up. This race is another 20 Km ITT on the service road between Airdrie and Crossfield on the east side of Highway 2. The course begins at the first corner of the service road. The turnaround is at 10 km which is just before highway 72. Start times will be one minute apart. Park on road West of the Costco Distribution Centre. After the race meet at the Airdrie Tim Hortons for coffee and to review the results.

Do you need to have a secondary Crankmasters membership to do this?

I think so. It used to be that you could pay $5 when you signed up for these ones, but I think now they roll them into the secondary membership. If you are going to do the WNS series, you need the secondary anyway. It may be worth clarifying this with an email them and then getting back to us?

I've been emailing Robert Armstrong from C4 and you can ride/race once in a Crankmaster's club event before getting a membership. The caveat is you have to sign a waiver to make it your "one event to try" before you must purchase a membership. This is in accordance with ABA's insurance policy.

If you are planning on doing Wednesday nights or any C4 club rides the easiest is to just get a secondary club membership before the race.

Cheers,
Meghan

Anyone going out to this that might have a seat available? I haven't quite decided on it, but trying to find an avenue to get out there.
