Friday Night Winter Series Director’s report

March 4, 2016 | 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. Please note we have gone through the points and tallied duplicates so if you see a name written that is different than the results posted this is why. We are making the corrections now.

Our novice series saw plenty of riders of all ages competing to earn their upgrade to the C division. The top placed novice rider was Andrew Lepper who scored 108 points. He earned his upgrade before the series ended. In second place youngster Domenik Adamoski of Gastown Cycling placed second overall while also earning his upgrade during the series and racking up 84 points. Finishing in third place was the young young Lachlan Hotchkiss of Doctor Walker cycling team with 78 points. Narrowly edging out late comer Ethan Ogrodniczuk from Fortius pb Cannondale who finished 4th place with 75 points. Honourable mention goes out to Bronwen Campbell of Fortius pb Cannondale who was the top placed woman in the field with 60 points. This field has been a pleasure to watch during the fall and winter series. Many of the graduates have gone on to great success in the C group.

The C group was one of the largest groups on the track. Many of our recent upgraded riders went on with great success during the winter series. Our top contender in the C category was none other than Gastown cycling’s Dylan Wiwad who put in many dominating performances to take the overall with 121 points. In second place another recent graduate was Michael Munro who racked up 99 points during the course of the series. In third place the man we call Robert “Bobby Rockets”  Freeman came very close to third place with 91 points!

The women’s C field this season saw some familiar faces as well as riders coming from Portland, Victoria, and even Calgary. Jennifer Killam (Gastown Cycling) has gone 2 in a row by winning the winter series with 122 points! In second place a hard charging Tegan Cochrane (Tinhorn Creek) racked up wins in nearly every race she entered. Rounding out our podium is Fiona Vernon who scored big early on in the season giving her 3rd place in the series.

The B group was a massive field this series and even was combined with the A riders for the added challenge. A few of our B riders earned upgrades during the season to the A group. Congratulations to Bradley Dean, John white, Wes Ochitwa, and Jay Delaney on upgrading to the A group.The one taking top honours in the B group is none other than Derek “D-rock” Ulrich of Gastown Cycling. Derek Powered to the win with 76 points. Second place in the B group was Kane Tchir who earned 63 points. Rounding out the podium the youngster Maggie Coles-Lyster who earned 52 points even with a break for cyclocross world championships!

The B women’s overall came down to two riders who were separated by just 9 points! Maggie Coles-Lyster(Tag Cycling) went on to win the overall series narrowly over Rachel Canning (Continental Crit-Nasty). Rounding out the podium american rider Erin Goodall earned third place.

The A group set blistering paces and we had many riders all scoring very closely in the top 4. We are seeing another young rider from Tag cycling win the overall of this series. Cam Fitzmaurice took the win with 124 points in the series. Look to see great things from this young man as he builds towards national championships in April. In second and third place we have a tie! Is it wrong for an employee to beat their boss? Well that will be for Michael to decide as Dylan Davies from Trek Red truck racing took second place over Michael Wegner of Power 2max who races for Langois Brown. Both riders earned 107 points overall. The tie break is the number of wins during the season. Just a single point behind Michael Wegner and Dylan Davies was our mechanic at the BVC and Alete-Fort Cyclery racer Adam “The Aldergrove assassin” Reddy with 106 points! The top woman in the A field was Ivy Audrain of Hagens Berman Supermint Pro cycling team.

We want to say thank you to all the riders who made the series so successful. Thank you to our riders from Victoria, Portland, Seattle, and even Minnesota! Thank you to all of our sponsors who make all of this possible.

January 4, 2016 | By | No Comments

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all have had a great holiday season. Our Friday night winter series is approaching quickly so here is the schedule. Note some changes may be made by our staff day of for safety concerns, size of fields, etc.

Congratulations to all our fall series winners who are taking home Jakroo series winners jerseys. Over the next 8 weeks we will crown a winter champion. Will it be you?

C Womens series winner – Jennifer Killam

C series winner – Tyler Davies

B Womens series winner- Maggie Coles-Lyster

B series winner- Jay Delaney

A Womens series winner- Steph Roorda

A series winner- Cam Fitzmaurice

New race info

-First to fifteen win and out- a points race where the first rider to win 15 points is the winner and must leave the track. The 2nd person is 2nd, 3rd is 3rd. If two riders are tied the finish position of the final sprint will decide the winner.

The Win and In race is a 15 lap race. There are 5 springs held every 3 laps. The winner of each sprint will qualify for the final. Once the five sprints are completed we have our final riders. The rest of the field that has not qualified will leave the track safely. Qualifiers will get 3 laps to go once the non qualifiers are off the track. Riders who win more than one sprint limit the number of riders in the final. Ie if one rider wins 2 sprints but 3 others win the other sprints we will have 4 riders in the final.

-The split scratch will be a combination of a points race and a scratch race. There will be a mid-race sprint that will score points 4 places deep, 5,3,2,1. There will then be a final sprint which will score points 6 places deep, 9,7,5,3,2,1. Highest total points scored wins the race. Scratch race rules apply for laps gained/lost, tie-break is the results of the final sprint.

Notes for racers

-You must hold a current 2016 Cycling BC citizens race license or UCI license if you are from outside of the province of British Columbia. A general citizens license will not be accepted

-All riders must have signed the 2016 waiver on site

-To the win sprint overall you must compete in 4 of the 8 races nights
