Movin' on Up!

Spring Series fun! Ryan continues with his steep learning curve by placing 4th today in the C race after a hard back to back weekend of hilly road races. He keeps complaining they are under 200k - it's the Randonneur in him.

And Claire spent the second half of her 105km B race in the winning break, finishing 7th (on her second day of racing as well). Apparently she complained of having too many gears and would have won it if she was riding the fixed...

It would be great to see a few more bodies out for the last weekend of Spring Series racing. The Devo Classic Stage Race is next weekend with a crit/tt on the saturday and the dreaded Snake Hill Road Race on the sunday. Fun, fun, fun...

Beating up on the Boys (and Girls).

It has been brought to my attention that I have neglected to make a post about the track exploits of our resident coach Claire Cameron. In this past season's Friday night racing at the Burnaby Velodrome (which wrapped up last week) she secured the overall victory in the B group. As you can see by the results below, this means she beat up on a whole buncha boys and girls while going round fast in circles. I guess there is a reason she teaches the Learn to Rides/Races at the track... She brings a whole lotta Chuck Norris toughness to this motley assembly.

*Edit: After looking at the results further, I've noticed Braden finished 6th overall in B's and in the C group we had Jenny coming in 4th, Stacey 8th and Wyatt in 9th.
