BVC comments:  Julian has a great ability to get riders to focus on the key things that will make them successful during the Learn to Ride and Learn to Race sessions.

Timon Glaesser

Track Attendant, Coach

Education: SFU Business Administration and Computing Science

Years Riding Track: Since December 2016

Accomplishments: Competed in several international track races. Hold the BVC record for longest plank. Over two and a half years of coaching experience.

BVC comments:  After learning to use the track he quickly took up the opportunity to work at the track as a coach and track attendant.

Daniel Fraser-Maraun

Track Attendant, Coach in Training
Education: A few embarrassingly lackluster semesters at Simon Fraser University.
Years Riding: Since I was 3, but seriously for under 6 months.
Accomplishments: I was a solid national level junior rower.  Among my notable performances, I pulled a 6:152k erg, nabbed a u23 BC Championship as a Junior, and won the Royal Canadian Henley in the U19 2x. After a few years of stagnancy following my leaving the sport of rowing, I now aim to become an elite in the sport of cycling. As of this moment, I boast a 100% winrate in the TT discipline.
BVC comments: Don’t let the quiet demeanour of this track attendant let you think that he is anything other than a beast on the bike. Surely he will be one of the fastest riders around in now time.

Adam Reddy

Mechanic, Track Attendant

Education: coming soon

Years riding: coming soon

Accomplishments: coming soon

BVC comments:  Adam has this unique ability to push his body beyond the red line. He is either on his bike making other hurt or he is on the ground having a heart attack as a result of the hard effort. He is a great trusted man with a wrench.

Vice President

Al Murison

Treasurer

Al Murison currently combines riding for local elite team Red Truck Racing with working for the accounting firm KPMG in the Enterprise Audit team, and is currently pursuing his CPA designation.

Growing up in the UK, Al began riding through the charity cycling event “The Paris to Hayling”. Having immediately caught the cycling bug, Al started racing in 2007 on both the road and track and the following year finished the season ranked 2nd in the U16 National Road Series (bragging rights are that year Simon Yates finished 1st & Adam Yates 3rd – they turned out to be quite good bike riders). Following a year racing in Belgium as a U23, Al attained a 1st Class Honours Degree in Kinesiology at the University of Exeter while riding for the French team Equipe CMI. Having moved to Vancouver in 2016, Al won the BC Provincial Road Championship in 2017 and the Provincial Criterium Championship in 2018.

When he’s not on his bike, Al audits small to medium sized clients and looks forward to bringing his experience working with these companies to the velodrome operations.
