Re: Thurs TTT

TTT updates 1. Steel plates are now in place on Ring Road. They are thick and they didn't have 'mini-ramps' yesterday afternoon. 2. TTT tentatively included in 2020 VCL racing calendar (July 12th). I will have another look at the Ring Road today, but maybe we need an alternative for a while - major ...

Re: Thurs TTT

A reply: Morning Dr Taylor, Thanks for the heads up, I will let the contractors know you will be out there. Please also let the club know that we will have steel plates down for a while, ultimately in three locations around Ring Road (not all at the same time). Cheers Best regards, David Hill BA (Ho...

Thurs TTT

I just sent this to a UVic project manager. There will be lane closures on the Ring Road this Thursday. The meno I received says they'll get started at 7 AM. Dear David, I am a BIOL prof, and also a cyclist. The club I belong to, Tripleshot Cycling, uses the Ring Road on Thursdays for Team Time Tria...

Re: !!!!!One week until the TSC Christmas Party!!!!!!!

Heidi has made a salmon stew... it's good. I mentioned it to remind you to bring bowls and a soup spoon as well as plates, knives and forks.

Re: How should I adapt my training as I get older?

I haven't posted for ages. Probably shouldn't today, cause you'll just think I'm a grumpy old man, which is fitting ;-) for this thread. "Do you want the bad news first? The body starts to slow down as we go past about 35 years of age. Now that’s out of the way, the good news is that these changes a...

Re: TTT_Thurs

Hi JohnT_v2, The Thursday affair motivated my post, but as you wrote, experience from previous TTTs conditioned your killer instinct. My post was not a complaint about that particular incident. In case others are wondering, John's team was drafting 'my' team so closely that when I rolled to the back...

TTT_Thurs

I think a discussion about last lap behaviour is worthwhile... For many in TripleShot (I include myself here) friendly competition is key. Even the 'competition' to get up at 5:30 AM matters (or at least used to matter) to me. Our competitiveness sometimes causes problems and our strength as a club ...

Re: In your face, Steve Lund

It's good, but I have to side with Steve in this latest Alan-Steve bout - Steve has topped this many times.

Re: US road champion Justin Williams: ‘Being in a sport that is primarily white it was hard not to feel alone, it broke

There was a local article (Oak Bay News and affiliates - Saanich News etc.) a few years ago that had a similar (not identical) theme... cycling, a sport for white guys. I wrote a reply making the point that there's more to diversity than skin colour. Diversity in cycling (and in just about everythin...

Alan's post and image, copied here, reminded me. I bought the new kit ($150) from Dan (posted on the TS classified ads) just for this event. Then one of us (Doh!) shows up with the old old kit.

Masters_TTT_Results

Gold medal for Tripleshot Cycling at the Master's TTT in Duncan! I'd like to leave it at that - the headline is accurate. But, there is a little more to the story. Joe, Tod, Allan C. and I practised last Thursday and on the basis of that success, entered the Sidney Velo Masters TTT (Team Time Trial)...

Several items were left behind yesterday. An Oak Bay Bikes T-shirt, some riding gloves (small), and a very fancy water bottle.

Speedway5

The 5th and last Speedway race was good fun for all, except the A's, who agreed that it was best not to race on a freshly-wetted surface. The B's started on a dry track and had an exciting race, but reported that by the last few laps wheels were starting to slip dangerously. Before continuing with f...

Speedway #3

I confess, I am not sure how many VCL races there have been, but I do know we're at Speedway race #3. Clear and sunny last night, warm and then very cold within the 2 hr timespan we were all there. Thanks very much to Martin and Mark for the help. Lots of participants, perhaps the largest C group ev...
