Wednesday Night Series Fun Wrap Up, Race, and Awards Night.

To all you STC'ers who did the Wednesday Night Series last summer.... this is to you...

Hey WNSers,

Your last chance to RSVP for the Last Chance Qualifier-WNS / Crankmasters Banquet is tonight and tomorrow morning! Send Glenn an email now at glenn@rmvpublications.com to let him know you’ll be there. 

Thursday night is the last chance to enter the Last Chance Qualifier race. Hit the Zone4.ca link and commit to some serious fun that only a callous cyclist could know.

This is just like a typical bike race - everyone registers at the 11th hour! Don’t worry about the weather, its indoors, so the climate is controlled. You’ll have artificial wind generated by massive fans - just like a tail wind. It won’t rain and you won’t crash on icy roads (but be careful on the sweaty cement)! Add that to an easy field of only 9 so far and it will be a breeze.

Caterer Karen wants to know how many pizzas to deliver, so its time. Send me an email now. We'd love you to see you there!

Dinner details: 
Calgary Jewish Community Centre (CJCC) 1607 90 Ave SW
February 20, 2016
Dinner begins at 6 pm, awards start at 7 pm. Event is over at 9 pm.

Race Details:
Races will be held beginning at 4 pm4:40 pm and 5:20 pm
Register and see technical details on Zone4.ca

Cheers,

Glenn Miles

Clothing order!


Club, Champion Systems have upgraded their front-end to be a little more user-friendly for the team. I have put together the 'store' for the team clothing. Thank you to Kluane Partners, Charles' company, who have agreed to help pay for the Kid's Crit portion of our race!

We are going to close the first round of clothing early this year, so there is no question everyone will have their new kits by the first event, be it a race or the training camp.

Clothing DEADLINE! is Feb. 21st !!


Notes:

The clothing design will remain the same this year so there is no stipulation to ordering kit. Your kits of years past will work at events.

I have the 'Repel' Rain Jacket and it has become my favourite piece of clothing. Somewhat expensive, but I wear it almost every ride at some point.

Repel jacket.

Field of Dreams (cyclist's cut)

Scene: A young pre-disgraced Lance speaking to his elder Aussie team mate (Phil Anderson) Lance: "is this heaven"
Phil: "Nah mate, this is New South Wales, Westhead Road"
Legend has it that Tony Abbott, the last PM of Australia and an avid cyclist, had this little used National Park road paved. It may be legend, but on any weekend hundreds, if not thousands of cyclist descend on this little piece of heaven. It's like being in Area 51, but with prefectly smooth riding roads! Stats: 25 KM, 400 meters round trip with plenty of side options to jam up the mileage and meters!
