We’re sorry to say that tonight’s Open Track and LTR have been cancelled due to unsafe conditions in the parking lot at the Harry Jerome Sports Center. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to see you next week.
The results from last week’s time trials…Also, there’s a sprint tournament coming up on March 19th, just before our last FFNRS (which will feature Keirins for all you sprinters out there). Your next chance to time trial is coming on April 16th.
With one of our instructors unable to attend, we’re cancelling the Learn to Ride (LTR) this evening. We apologize for the inconvenience but we’re back to our regularly scheduled sessions next Saturday. We hope to see you at the Feature Friday Night Race Series event #3 this coming Friday, February 14th, at 7:00pm.
In lieu of the LTR we’ll have open track from 7:00pm-10:30pm this evening. If you are in LTR 4 or in the Novice sessions feel free to come out for the paced workout.
As always, the Wednesday night preceding our Feature Friday Night Race Series presented by Livestock and Incase event signals yet another race. This time around it’ll be time trials. Warm up starts at 6:00 and racing will start promptly at 7:00. Be sure to bring some warm clothes to wear off the track as well as rollers or a trainer, since track time between events will be limited.
Aside from testing your legs to see how you’re progressing, competitors will also be racing for an invitation to race the 1km Lightning Wheelrace on Friday at the FFNRS. For our “C” grade and Novice racers, this will be the last chance to race in front of the crowds on Friday Night this season! The schedule is…

Jonathan Wood, the creator of our new identity, was one of 154 graphic designers selected for a prestigious Communication Arts award. The 2014 Typography Annual received 1,894 entries from around the world for competition across 15 different categories. Jon’s award was in the “Identity” category.
Now, busier than ever, we managed to steal some time away to catch up with Jon. When asked what the award meant to him he said that it was, “the most selective juried visual design competition in the world, having work published in Communication Arts is a huge honour for any designer. It also means that the Burnaby Velodrome brand will be seen by a large international audience. Definitely a nice addition to the palmares.”
Congratulations Jon on a job well done!
According to the Communication Arts website:
Since 1959, Communication Arts has published the best in visual communications from around the world. To find the best work, CA sponsors creative competitions that recognize the finest talent in the industry. Winners are selected by juries of their peers and published in our must-have annuals.
