Weekly Update: September 12-18


That’s right, you are looking at the winners of the team competition at the DV100. And what a competition is was! We took the title by a mere 2 seconds over the next team.

Because of the the power weather last weekend, the Edmonton International City Track Championships are back for another week this upcoming Saturday. Scroll down for all the details.

Guess what? It’s still ‘cross season! As of last week, we’ve transitioned both of our Weekly rides to ‘cross rides. On Tuesday’s, we now have out CX Endurance ride. We’ll leave from  Velocity Cycle at 6:30pm and, just like we did on Thuesday’s all August, hit the trails from there. There’s also a  Midweek Race, our Thursday Skills Night, and the Drie Zussen Provincial Championships in Calgary this weekend!
