Sad News

February 2, 2019 | By | No Comments

The Burnaby Velodrome Club is deeply saddened by the loss of one of our longtime members, Michael McIntosh. Our thoughts are with his wife and family during this time of loss.

Michael was committed to riding the velodrome, and over the last 6 years he has been a staple of the Intermediate workouts, no matter what the season. He loved riding track, and he will be greatly missed.

His family will be holding a service on February 9, more details to come. If you would like to attend, please email rachel@burnabyvelodrome.ca.

Wednesday’s workout will be a dedication to Michael’s love for motorpacing. Please come out and join us in a moment of silence for Michael and some time behind the motorbike. Open to all abilities.
