Track Attack May 8th

That was a great night of racing, 60 full track riders and 23 half trackers, the place was hopping! With a lot of new riders in the mix it took us a while to get going but when we did there was some fantastic racing with a cruiser main and a couple completely full classes. It was also great to see the executive mom's out battling in the fun race we threw in for them, those ladies are pretty competitive!

Unfortunately we also kept our first aid volunteers busy, which is never a good thing. We all hope that Rory Ennis is okay, he took a hard spill after making a great move in the first corner in a tight cruiser class. We also hope Derek Slykerman is feeling okay after being run over by the announcer.

We were scrambling a bit tonight so weren't able to get ticket sales started for the Academy Aspire bike provided by Urban Menace, be sure to bring some extra money next week to pick up your ticket.

Results and Track Points are now posted and thanks to Armand at Urban Menace Bikes we have a picture of the ladies heading into the second corner. Check the picture gallery out for some more shots that Armand took.



Thank You!

We would like to throw out a HUGE THANK YOU to URBAN MENACE BIKES for donating a sweet 2012 Academy Aspire BMX to the track.
If you see Armand at the track go up and give him a High Five for his generosity. Support your local shops if you can.
Tickets to win this bike go on sale Monday, and will continue for the season. Good Luck!!

Another great night of racing!

17 half trackers and 9 motos of full track riders braved what looked like potentially bad weather to get in only our second race of the year. It was great to see a lot of new riders trying it out for the first time and more of our half track racers making the move to full track. 

Thanks to all the volunteers for keeping it all running smoothly even with all the new sign ups and thanks to Andre for his always entertaining announcing.

Results and Track Points are now posted.

Racing other tracks.

Do you or your kids want to race more than once a week or try out some other tracks? Good news! There are 4 tracks in the lower mainland that are sanctioned through Cycling BC so the license you use while riding at Ridge Meadows is good for racing at Abbotsford, North Vancouver and Surrey. 

You can check out the track locations by clicking on "Locations" on the menu bar, if you click on the individual track on the map you can get directions.

The race schedule, which includes all the tracks is available under the Information menu item by choosing Race Schedules or by clicking the link below.

Youth and Junior Development Camp April 6, 2012

It was a great day out at the track for the second Cycling BC Youth and Junior Development camp of the season. Selection for these teams is based on rider placing in the BC Cup Series and the BC Championship race, it is a great opportunity for young riders to be mentored by some of Canada's top riders. Coaches Mischa Partridge and James Palmer did a great job of teaching the kids how to race the track and it was amazing to see how fast some of the riders are going this early in the race season.

We have posted some pictures of the clinic, under the Pictures menu item.
