VCC August 10 Update

Save yourself some kitchen time this Sunday! Club President Ed Heacock will be hosting a club social BBQ at his place (11137-73 Avenue) staring about 5:30pm. Come share stories from your L’Étape Edmonton experience earlier in the day, or just find out what we all look like without our helmets on! Family members welcome to attend too. Please bring lawn chairs for everyone in your group.

Email me, Coach Kevin, before 7pm this Saturday if you’ll be attending this social event and include the number in your group and if you have any dietary preferences, such as vegetarians or vegans:

Saturday Club Ride

A relatively short 50km ride to keep your legs fresh for L’Étape on Sunday. Leaving from Charlesworth at our usual 10am start time. (Note: I won’t be at this ride as I’ll be testing my legs in the Provincial Time Trial on Saturday.)

Velocity Afterburner Gravel

The Afterburner Gravel courses have been set. August 20 will be an epic day for everyone! The event starts at 10:30am.

We’re keeping it simple this year and limiting the field to 100 participants across all categories.

Of course, events like these can’t happen without your help.

On event day we’ll need a few helping hands to give participants a great (and safe) experience. The places we need help are:

  • Sign-on support
  • Feed station help
  • On-course 4×4 vehicle support
  • Post-event BBQ set up and take down

Please email Coach Kevin if you can help us out on event day:

September Long Weekend Cyclocross Race

Velocity will be hosting a ‘cross race on Sunday, September 3. Same Strathcona Science Park venue and format as we’ve hosted in past years. Stay tuned for our volunteer call-out to pull-off this our final event of the season.
