Capital City Cycles Summer Race Series

Posted in Events, Track by capitalcitycycles on March 16, 2010

This is it- We are finally putting out a schedule for the Capital City Cycles summer race series.  More details inside!

The idea behind the summer race series is to get everyone out on bikes, as often as possible, and to really get a solid scene going on here in Victoria.  We will be doing the races as a points series, so the more races you show up for, the more likely you are to win the overall series after the final race in September.  There’s going to be some awesome prizes for the top finishers of the series, as well as prizes going out to the winners of each race, so come out and support the Victoria bike scene.  The more people who come out, the more point are available for each race.  The race schedule is as follows, keeping in mind that for the sprints we will always be meeting at 7:30 in front of the shipyards on the last road stretch of the Galloping Goose trail near the blue bridge.

Friday March 26th:  Sprints! 7:30!  F-Yeah!

Saturday April 3rd:  The second annual(?) Quadra Street Monster Drag.  Back by popular demand the race starts with a mass start at the base of Quadra St. in Beacon Hill Park, finishing at the end of Quadra near the Pat Bay Highway.  Meet at the start point at 6:30 sharp!

Friday April 23rd: Sprints!

Friday May 14th: Sprints!

Saturday June 5th:  Traditional style alleycat race through Victoria with checkpoint along the way.  Meet at the Roy statue on the Lochside trail at 7:30pm, and you will be given a manifest with the checkpoints.

Friday June 18th: Sprints!

Friday July 2nd: Sprints!

Saturday July 24th: Another alleycat race, this time starting at the shop at 7pm.

Sunday August 8th:  Dallas Road Monster Drag.  The race will meet and start at the Beacon Hill Flagpole, and end at Giro Park in Saanich, with a couple of checkpoints along the main route to ensure that everyone follows the main drag and climbs all those hills.  Meet at 6:45.

Saturday August 28th: Sprints/Afterparty at an undisclosed location.

Friday Sept 10th: Sprint Finals!!

Sunday Sept 19:  The final race of the series- A 200 lap team relay at the Vic High track.  Teams of four will compete to see who can finish their 100 laps first, with full support and lots and lots of beer.  It’s gonna be a long day.

The awards for the final series winners will be handed out after the Vic High lap race.

Volunteers will be needed to help organize the races/man checkpoints, so if anyone is interested please swing by the shop and let me know.

See you out there.
