Youngster Tyler Davies tops the C category over mountain man Greg Mathews. The B women’s category is topped by Olympian Georgia Simmering with a narrow four point lead over rising star Maggie Coles-Lyster (local ride racing), and Sarah Coney (Trek Red truck) is sitting just a single point behind Maggie to round out the podium. The C ladies has been growing in popularity over the series. Jennifer Kohm is leading the series with Jenny Auxier (UBC) sitting in second and Rachel Canning (ATAC) in third. Margaret Ovenell and Kaitlin Wood sit just two points behind Rachel in a tie for fourth.

Below is program for the remaining nights in our series. Who will be crowned the winner at the end to take the Jakroo overall leaders jersey? Stay tuned!

Learn to ride and regular members

October 27, 2015 | By | No Comments

Hey everyone,

Just a gentle reminder that the LTR sessions on the schedule are set aside first and foremost for those riders who are learning to ride the track. We want to be as accommodating to everyone as possible, but with winter comes a much larger interest in going around in small circles outside of the rain. Teaching a group of 12+ people how to ride the track for the first time requires a lot of attention and work on the coaches part, and the addition of riders who are there to ’do their own thing’ adds an extra challenge to us. We ask that you respect the new riders and help us to make their first experiences on the track a fun one. So what does this mean for you? If you come to an LTR or novice workout and are not participating in either we ask that you approach the coaches upon arrival to the track (or if you are crossing over from Open time please approach us before the lesson starts), and let us know what your workout needs are. We will do our best to accommodate you into the group in as safe a manner as possible. If we feel there is an unsafe amount of people on the track, or that your specific interval will put the safety of the LTR riders at risk we may ask you to come off the track for a few minutes. Please remember that we are not trying to interrupt your workout, but that we are only concerned for the safety of ALL riders on the track. Lastly, if you are riding during LTR time, please remember we expect you to be an example of safe riding to the new riders. This means no buzzing new riders, no riding with no hands, shoulder checking and communicating, and respecting the coaches and other riders.

Thanks in advance, and happy riding!
