Sprint Tournament on Wednesday

February 9, 2015 | By | No Comments

I’ve been getting lots of questions about the upcoming Sprint Tournament on Wednesday so I thought it would be a good time to give a little more information. Let me begin by saying that everyone should attend! Don’t be fooled by its competitive title, “tournament” should really be taken in the loosest version of the word.

We’ll start the night off by having everyone do a flying 200 meter time trial (3.5 laps where,on our track, only the last lap is timed). This is how all sprint tournaments start and it’s used to seed the sprint rounds. Typically a predetermined number of riders, “X” will advance through to the sprint competition. This could be as many as 24 and as few as 4, it really depends on the level of competition and the race organizer. From there the fastest rider would meet the slowest rider to qualify. If for example X=16 than X1 would race X16, X2 would race X15, and so on. For our purposes this will merely help group riders of similar speed.

Once we know how everyone stacks up we’ll run a round robin so that riders race people of similar speed/ability. Since we only have a maximum of two riders on the track at a time the race is hardly “mass start” which is why even people that haven’t taken the Learn to Race can compete. Having said that, all participants must have graduated the Novice training session in order to participate.

Our goal will be to have everyone ride at least three sprint rounds, not including the Flying 200m TT. It’s possible that we may get more riding time but it’s impossible to say since it’s all drop-in. Either way racing will start promptly at 7:00pm. Open track begins at 6:00 so be sure to come early enough to warm up. It’s also a good idea to bring your rollers since there’s lots of recovery between efforts.

Your goal should be to have a fun workout that trains race craft and top end speed. If, for whatever reason, you find the sprinting is too easy…put a smaller gear on and push yourself. Remember to go in with a plan, try something new; you might surprise yourself and find that it works. And, while you’re figuring out what you want to do, just scratch track stands from the list. Yeah they’re kinda cool…when you’re a World Champion, but at the grassroots level, you’re just killing time for everyone else. That and, realistically, few sprinters track stand on the world level anymore (so, when in Rome…).

Last, but not least, we’ll have sprinting at our last Feature Friday Night Race Series event. The sprinting on Friday will be a continuation of the sprinting on Wednesday. The top four riders will be invited to compete on Friday in an exhibition match that goes straight to 1/4 finals. If you want in on the action just let us know on Wednesday when you’re signing up.

Get Inspired!

In case you haven’t heard, the Burnaby 4 Day is coming up soon.

Then join us December 27th-30th to watch the pros make it look easy! Space is limited so sign up soon.

Madison Clinic

November 17, 2014 | By | No Comments

Attention B Riders…and anyone else interested in learning a new skill at the track.

We will be hosting a Madison clinic on Saturday November 22nd for all interested riders. Once again we will be bringing in Zak Kovalcik to lead the clinic which starts at roughly 8:00pm. While the clinic is intended for our ‘B’ riders interested in competing at this year’s Burnaby 4 Day, it is open to all riders in the C’s and up. Space is limited to 20 participants and registration is first come first serve. Sign up soon!

Time Trials 11/6

November 6, 2014 | By | No Comments

What a turnout! Thanks to everyone that came out to our bi-monthly time trials. It’s always a great chance to put your fitness to the test. Whether you’ve taken our Learn to Race or are even interested in racing, set your baseline and keep your training in check.

Having said that, with Barney & Oscar’s Feature Friday Night Race Series coming up this Friday, there was more than just a PR on the line. The top two riders in each event pre-qualify for the Jeremy Storie Memorial Wheelrace. In the event that one of those riders qualified in a previous event, the invitation is extended to the next fastest rider.

Be sure to join us on Friday. Racing starts at 7:00pm! #FFNRS

Beer Passport 2014

October 27, 2014 | By | No Comments

Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

-Benjamin Franklin

If you’re a fan of craft beer and missed Barney & Oscar’s Feature Friday Night Race presented by Livestock and G-Shock on October 10th, don’t worry; the next event is just around the corner. On November 7th, join us in the beer garden with Burnaby’s own Dageraad Brewing. But don’t wait until then to get started on your Beer Passport…and yes, it really is as amazing as it sounds!

Barney & Oscar’s Feature Friday Night Race Series p/b Livestock and G-Shock is supposed to be about showcasing the best our area has to offer both on and off the track. While the racing is going and the music playing, we’re showcasing one of the area’s fine microbreweries in our beer garden (must be 19 or older with valid ID).

How it Works:

Each night you come into the beer garden you get one stamp. Collect all of the stamps and you’ll walk away from the last FFNRS event in February with a commemorative pint glass (while supplies last). And, as a special bonus, make it out to any night of the Burnaby 4 Day, and in February we’ll fill up your new pint glass the first time on the house.

“So what happens if I didn’t make it out to one of the previous races,” you may ask. Not to worry! You can catch up by buying a pint (or sleeve where pints aren’t available) at one of the following locations, be sure to ask for the stamp. Then come out to the remaining FFNRS events to fill up the rest of your passport.

FFNRS Event Brewery Make-up Location

Vancouver, BC V5T 3E4
November 7th Dageraad Brewery #114, 3191 Thunderbird Crescent, Burnaby BC V5A 3G1
February 13th 33 Acres Brewing 15 W 8th Ave, Vancouver, BC V5Y 1M8

On Deck: Feature Friday Night Race Series #1

October 6, 2014 | By | No Comments

They’re back!

Join us for our first Feature Friday Night Race Series presented by Livestock. As always, the racing is meant to highlight the very best of track cycling; a showcase of the diversity that makes this sport, and it’s people, great. The night’s feature events will include an invitational match sprint tournament and a Madison. Categories include: A grade, B grade, a kiddie kilo, and, in honor of Junior National Championships coming to Burnaby, U17/U19 women and men. In the higher categories racers will compete for their turn to wear the coveted Leader’s Jersey presented by Vie 13 Kustom Apparel and if they can hang, the FFNRS Champion’s Jersey being presented at the series finale on February 13th.

But what spectacle would be complete without great food and good drink? At each of our Feature Friday Nights we’ll also showcase one of the regions finest craft breweries in our beer garden. Anyone 19 and over can pick up a Beer Passport and get a stamp from Hoyne Brewery who will be on tap first!

In addition we’ll have WINGS on hand dishing out some delicious eats.

What are you waiting for, invite your friends and come out to the velodrome, one of only two indoor tracks in the country we might add.
