Club, we'll meet on February 5th where we'll meet, eat, drink, and get pumped up for next year !!  We will have a very short 'formal' section where we talk about our successes of 2014 and where the club is going for 2015. If you are thinking of joining the club, this is a great time to come and see if you like what you hear and enjoy everyone's company.

Rough sched:
Everyone hang out for a bit eating and grabbing a beer.
Trev gives quick synopsis of 2014.
Harley, talks about Penticton which will be May 10th - 16th. (Crazy popular training camp)

Clothing is up and ready to order. Deadline Feb. 20th.

We are doing things a bit differently this year. Champion has set up a 'Store Front' for us to use. This means, you will log in with your created login with it's associated name, then on Feb. 20th Champion will gather all the orders made for STC, make the stuff, and package it all individually for your order, and send it. This way there is no sorting to be done and no potential mistakes made by me while I collate all the orders like in the old days!!

Here is how to order.

1.) Follow this link.
2.) Use the LEFT login screen and login (in the space where it asks for an email address) as: speed with the password: theory
3.) Create your profile so Champion knows who to package all the clothes up for.
4.) Go through the store and order what you need/want.

There are some new items, the most significant is the creation of women's specific cuts and chamois for the bib and shorts called 'Bella' and 'Donna'... have a look at those.
The most popular jersey is the 'CS Air Lite Short Sleeve' it is the one that we have been getting for several years. There are some preyty expensive other options, if you want something with more features.
The most popular short is the 'CS Pro Bib Shorts' it is a bit of an upgrade to the ones most of us have been getting for the last several years, but in my opinion worth it.

We will close the store on Feb. 20th

Tour Down Under 2015

Start of the 2015 Bupa Challenge ride. Stage 4 of the race. 6800 cyclists, good luck finding your mates in this mess! It was a great and well organized event. We enjoyed the ride and then hit the gas over the last 30 Km. Huge festival at the finish with tens of thousands of people. We set up at 175 metres to go. Sprint finish at about 70+KPH until: Huge crash. Smell of burning carbon everywhere. Dead silence in the crowd. Crappy way to end a great race. For sale, race bike, hardly used and never (honestly) crashed!!!! Stage 5 was up Wilunga hill twice at the end of the stage. 3 Km climb starting at 11%, settling to 7% the rest of the way. We rode up and then settled at 400 metres to go. Local paper estimated 120 thousand people through Wilunga town and up the climb. Fantastic atmosphere with towns out in force and campers all along the road. Richie Porte crushing them all! A great event, made better by being out in beautiful weather on a bike.
