Provincials road race - cat 1/2 men

Sam and myself linked up in Aldergrove for the Cat 1/2 Provincials road race champs after a few of us grabbed the early morning ferry to the mainland. On the menu was 7 laps of an undulating 20km course. It wasn't a pure climber's course by any means but it wasn't for the flatlanders either. A coupl...

Tour de Bloom twilight crit

Quick recap as it is midnight but the caffeine is still flowing through the veins. Cole maintained good position throughout the race but unfortunately missed out on the pivotal break that ended up sticking. He ended up sprinting it out and came through the line in 6th - maintaining top 10 on the GC....

RTR crit

The racing continued on Sunday in downtown Maple Ridge, with wet weather continuing on. Cole and Taro represented the Wheelers in the Cat 4 race and I was left to fend for myself in the 1/2's, with Sam catching the early ferry to go to work (bleh). The Cat 4 boys raced a spirited race and showed dep...

Speedway #1

It was a beautiful night for a VCL race. Wheelers had Sam, Rich, Isaac, Logan, Marc and myself represented in the A race. Other notable characters included Mitch and Duncan from Smart Savvy, the Breakaway team and a solid BSC team. The race was short and peppy and anyone who has raced speedway knows...

Caleb Pike #2

VCL race number two. It was a beautiful day to race a bike. Wheelers were out in full force, even though we were missing a couple key players. We haphazardly divided the team pre-race into young and a little less young. The A race did 18 laps and on lap 2 (I think), myself, ARuss and Eugene got into...

Aug 16 Caleb Pike VCL A Race

The final VCL road race of the season brought out a solid contingent of Wheelers and a good number of Pro City and Broad St among a handful of other riders. The spicy warmup ride to the course had me wondering if I was feeling like racing was a good idea, but I couldn't say no to free rice krispie s...

June 21 - Caleb Pike VCL A Race

The longest day of the year brought with it a beautiful sunny evening for some racing with friends and teammates. We made the journey out to Caleb Pike for 50ish km of racing - 18 laps of the undulating course. We aimed to keep Ian Hendry (our newest welcome edition) in the BSC omnium lead, with his...

BC Provincials RR

The Cat 1/2 squad of Jackson, Duncan, ARuss and myself made the journey over to the mainland for some championship racing. It was a race where being alert, and staying on top of hydration ended up being the keys. Those donning black spandex resembled black asphalt after a spring thaw - salt stains e...

VCL A Speedway #3

Wednesday night's speedway consisted of 35 minutes of circles followed by 5 laps. The race became hasty and tasty very quick with a few guys flying off the front (consisting of Brendan, Nick from OBB WS, Ross and Mitch). Seeing no Wheelers up there, I decided to put one in the group and bridged the ...

Tour de Bloom Stage 3 - Crit - Cat 1/2

Stage 3 of Tour de Bloom was an evening criterium in downtown Wenatchee. Surely this race was the most exciting thing to happen all year in this town. Being the apple capital of the world can't bring in THAT many tourists, can it?? I did see a couple decent looking taco trucks I regret not checking ...
