Re: VCL_2019

TS had 6 youth riders in the C race, including 2 11 year olds , 2 12 yr olds and 2 13 year olds. (plus another 8 or so in the B rac...

Thanks Fozzy for doing this. I know from my partial experience that this is an iceberg of work; only 10% is visible.

Tripleshot moment Sam and Moss

Thought fellow members might appreciate this. New last fall, youth rider Sam (17) has embraced all aspects of the program, from 'cross in the fall, to winter track, to mtb. He started on the Burnaby track in December in one of our one-day camps, attended the Teams of BC nationals prep camps, then ra...

Re: Wanted: mountain bike for 10 year old girl

No bikes floating around the youth program right now, but several kids, but 2 boys and 2 girls 9-11. We find having peers is what motivates most kids (something we learned from the coffee culture of ts :)). Re road time: In winter we’re all off road: mtb Sundays, cross adventure (Colquitz, Swan, the...

Re: JayLam selected for World Track Championships

Canadian women also fourth. A bit disappointing for them, they were three seconds slower in their medal round than in the second ride.

I guess they need Sarah Van Dam to move up from the nexgen program, and give them a boost ;).

Re: JayLam selected for World Track Championships

Canada went for it, starting fast and leading for the first three laps, but Denmark caught up and went away to win. Still, solid ride, no mistakes, step by step they are getting there. First ever 4th place in world championships. Analysis here: https://www.tissottiming.com/File/0003110102010903FFFFF...

Re: JayLam selected for World Track Championships

They beat Poland! Third best time in the round, through to bronze medal final against Norway! I think it’s the first time ever for a Canadian men’s team. I guess the women showed the way. :).

Go JayLam!

Re: JayLam selected for World Track Championships

Good rides for both Canadian teams at worlds, with both likely to win the next rides to move into the medal rounds. http://www.canadiancyclist.com/dailynews.php?id=34610&title=track-world-championships-day-1-results Both qualified 5th, which means they ride against 8th place qualifiers in round two....
