Rundle Mountain Stage Race Recap

We had a strong contingent out the the Rundle Mountain Stage Race and managed to take home some solid results. A couple of the highlights included Michael’s GC win (Cat 1/2), Mitch’s win in the Hill Climb and Road Race (Cat 3), Francis’ 3rd in the Road Race (Cat 4), and Mike’s 7th in the Hill Climb (Cat 5). Those results aside, everyone who raced this weekend in the club did us proud. Congratulations!

Higlandia Crit Recap

A huge thanks to everyone that came out and raced or volunteered for the Highlandia Criterium! We had some great performances highlighted by Stewart’s 5th in Cat 5 and Francis’ 4th in Cat 4 (and he tried to tell us he was bad at sprinting)! Nice work everyone.

Masters National Championships 

If you didn’t look to closely at the photo above, you better go back and check it out because Ed Heacock is looking pretty good on that podium in the Road Race!

Congrats to Ed (3rd in RR, 7th in TT), Brain Countryman (8th in TT, 14th in RR), Dave Watson (35th in RR, 13th in TT), and Kevin Coghlan on their performances at the 2017 Global Relay Masters National Championships this past weekend. You can see all the results by following this link. 

Classic of Highlandia Criterium 

The classic of Highlandia crit is quickly approaching and you still have time to register, volunteer, or, even better, do both! You can see the Tech Guide here. Remember that Early Bird pricing closes tonight (Monday) at 11:59pm! 

The race still needs 40 volunteers to run, so if you want to come hang out at one of the most fun criteriums out there, consider doing so while wearing an orange vest!

Club Support at Rundle Mountain Stage Race

Screen Shot 2017-06-08 at 1.09.00 PM

Once again, the Rundle Mountain Stage Race (RMSR) on June 24-25 will be a semi-supported club event! This means that want to encourage everyone to travel down together for the event and have some funding available for club accommodation (and, of course, race entries reimbursement at the end of the year).

The RMSR is a two day, three stage race right in the heart of Canmore. Stage 1 a criterium just out of downtown Canmore, Stage 2 is a steep 1.96 km hill climb up Silvertip Hill, and Stage 3 a tough road race that finishes at the Canmore Nordic Centre.
