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.

David Miller

Vice President

David Miller happened on cycling late in life. In 2014 he befriended experienced, cyclist, coach and mentor Richard Wooles, David jumped into cycling with the entirety of his heart. After losing a ton of weight, David found and dipped his cleats into ride and racing at the Burnaby Velodrome. He’s since eagerly fit in as much as he can manage, including competing at Masters National Championships within the first two years of racing a bicycle. He’s drawn to the velodrome for the vibrant, active and encouraging community of like minded humans he’s found.

Beyond David’s fascination with everything cycling, his enthusiasm translates to his business running an award winning Web Design and Development agency on the North Shore.

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.
