Fall Series 2016 – That’s a Wrap!

December 27, 2016 | By | No Comments

Well that’s a wrap!

Our Fall series has come to a close. We have tallied up the points and are ready to announce the winners of the Friday night Fall series.

Our novice series saw plenty of riders of all ages competing to earn their upgrade to the C division. The focus of this group was safe riding, and we will see many of these racers upgrade to the C group for the Winter Series. Our “Most Improved” award goes to Lora Genaille, who consistently improved her racing skills throughout the 10 weeks.

The C group was one of the largest groups on the track, and we will no doubt see some of these riders upgrading to B’s in the near future. Our top contender in the C category was none other than Dominek Adamoski who put in many dominating performances to take the overall with 202 points. In second place is Andrew “Not Kyle” Lepper who racked up 122 points during the course of the series. In third place is Kyle Ulinder with 97 points.

The B group was a consistently strong and big field, and was subject to a very close battle for podium positions. The one taking top honours in the B group go to Bobby “Rockets” Freeman of La Bicicletta. Bobby powered to the win with 92 points. Second place in the B group was Neil Davies, with only 5 points less, at 87 points. A further 5 points back, and rounding out the podium is Emil “Can we do 32kph” Marcetta with 82 points.

The A group set blistering paces and we saw several very talented riders in this field. 12x National Champion and multiple World Cup medalist, Steph “The Viking” Roorda, rode away with the series win, racking up 132 points. In second we have new velodrome employee Amiel Flett-Brown with 73 points. Only 3 points back is Jay Delaney with 70 points.

We want to say thank you to all the riders who made the series so successful. Thank you to our riders who came from from Victoria, Portland, Bellingham and Seattle. Thank you to all of our sponsors who make all of this possible.

We look forward to starting up again on January 13th. Have a good holiday!
