The Burnaby Velodrome Club presents their Annual Open House May 18th and 19th.

Back by popular demand the Burnaby Velodrome Club is happy to present our annual open house sponsored by the BurnabyNow. Ever wanted to try riding the track but are nervous about committing to five sessions? Now you don’t have to be. We will have our instructors and mechanic on site to help you through the first class. Every year we introduce up to two hundred riders to the track during the weekend. The best part is it is completely free!

 

The session includes your bike, instructors, use of the facility, pedals (if you don’t have cycling shoes and pedals of your own), and helmets (if you don’t have your own- sizes are limited so please email with the size you want when registering).

Classes will be limited to a maximum of 16 riders. This is for safety and to give each person maximum ride time. No experience is needed to register. Everyone is welcome, regardless of ability. The track is a very friendly environment that allows for riders of all ages, genders, and abilities levels to ride. We have taught children as young as 8 years old up to seniors well past their 60’s and everyone in between. This event is best for Adults as kids under 19 are allowed to do 3 sessions free any Monday and Wednesday.

Sessions will run on both Saturday and Sunday at 10am-11:30am, and 12:30pm-2pm

Friday Night Racing Winter Series Results

April 2, 2019 | By | No Comments

Well that’s a wrap!

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

Our novice series saw plenty of riders of all ages competing for the first time on the track. Many riders upgraded to C’s. Our “Most Improved” award goes to Paul Collett, who consistently improved his racing skills throughout the 12 weeks.

The C group was quite fast, and towards the end we saw some of these riders upgrading to B’s. Our top rider, for a second time, is Viktor Djurasic. He accumulated 117 points before upgrading to Bs. Only two points back, with 115 points over 24 races, is Warren Taylor. Rounding out the podium is  Braden Holt in third.

The B group was a strong field of solid riders. Niall Dempsey moved up one spot from the Fall series, claiming first with whopping 147 points. Scott Vigliotti took second, and Michael Wegner was third.

The A group set blistering paces on the track, and it was a race right until the end. Neil Davies took top honours, only 3 points ahead of Dylan Davies. Third place, only 11 points back, is Sage Deluce.

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.
