Jason Lapieirre Dogpound Road Race -- Amended Prize Money

If you think you get top 3 in your race on Sunday. Stick around and Joelle is in charge of distributing the cash. This year we are giving out the cash about 10 minutes after your Cat's results are posted and any disputes are settled. Stick around or your cash may be donated to the volunteer / club beer fund... which would be a good thing anyway! Seriously, make it easy on everyone and grab your cash before you leave.

Because of lower than expected registration, here is the amended prize list for Sunday's race:

           1st         2nd           3rd
Cat 1/21008060
Cat 3706040
Cat 4 706040
Cat 5706040

Cat 5 Racer needs a ride to the race on Sunday.

Can anyone give a dude living in the Killarny / Glenbrook area a ride to the race on Sunday?

Comment here if you can and I will hook you two up.

Hammer Nutrition at the Jay Lap Road Race

Hammer Nutrition will be at the Jay Lap this Sunday for all your post-recovery needs. Look for the 43 foot long truck (it will be fairly easy to see...) in the parking lot.

Many thanks to Ryan Correy and the Hammer Team!

Jason Lapierre Road Race, Sunday, August 9 -- Volunteer Needs

First of all, a huge congrats to everyone for big performances at this year's Tour de Bowness! Taking both the Cat 4 and Cat 5 crits is impressive!

Now it's our time to give back to the local race scene. If you haven't yet signed up for a volunteer slot (or convinced a spouse, son or daughter, old college roommate, or that guy who says he "owes you one" to volunteer), please consider doing so. WE ARE IN SERIOUS NEED OF COMM/WHEEL CARS AND MORE COURSE MARSHALLS.

Volunteer obligations will start at around 9:00 am and should be done no later than 4:00 pm

Volunteer sign-up is here.

19 Club Members in Tour be Bowness!

We've got a lot of Speed Theorists racing in the Road Race, Hill Climb, and Criterium this weekend! The best events to go watch are the Hill Climb at COP since you can bring the kids and hike up the road and cheer like mad and then the best opportunity is the Criterium as it is coupled with a big Bowness Street Festival so it is really family friendly and extremely fun to attend.

Good luck everyone!

And we'll be seeing all our club members out next weekend either volunteering or racing at the JayLap Road Race. Please see the post below to sign up for volunteering!

Jason Lapierre Memorial Dog Pound Road Race -- Volunteer Sign Up


STC folks,

Here's the link to the Volunteer sign up page for the Dog Pound Road Race on Sunday, August 9:

Races don't happen without volunteers. PLEASE CONSIDER EITHER VOLUNTEERING OR PROVIDING A VOLUNTEER. Here's a brief summary of what each role does:

Picking up food: Pretty straightforward. Head to the local Tim Hortons or Costco, pick up food, and bring it to the hall. We'll give you a list, a budget, and reimburse you the costs.

Course Marshalls: You'll be at a corner helping to make sure all racers make the corner safely. One corner on this course is very fast, so we're hoping to have at least three people there. Hopefully you'll be able to work on your tan.

Drivers: This is a big need. Comm cars will have a you and an official in your car, and you'll be following the race making sure everyone follows the rules and plays nice, this is a cool perspective of the race. Wheel cars will carry spare wheels for racers that flat, you don't have to do anything but stop for someone that needs a tire, no experience necessary. Two cars per category.

Course Set-Up/Tear Down: Head out and help set up the course with cones, message boards, the tent for the finish line, etc. You can do this and race.

Hall Set-Up/Tear Down: Get the hall ready and clean up at the end of the day. Many hands make light work...

Registration Help: Help the ABA Technical Delegate hand out race numbers and make sure everyone signs on on race day. You could still race if you help out here!

And I'm sure I'll come up with more tasks...

Our last WNS race THIS Wednesday.

Club, it is our last Wednesday Night Series event THIS week July 15th before Peloton take over the last 5 races. Alan would like to hold a fun event that would involve an Australian Pursuit, but needs a few more volunteers than normal. Please consider lending a couple hours if you raced Rundle Mountain and aren't quite ready to race again, or maybe bring a partner and get them to help out for 2 hours. It is a very easy volunteer commitment.

Alan has devised a cool course but it has a few more corners than normal. So come out and lend a hand. More info on the course here. Please email Alan here to throw your volunteer hat in the ring.

Dog Pound Road Race - Sunday, August 9 - Volunteers


Plans are well underway for the annual Jason Lapierre Memorial Cycling Weekend. Here's what you need to know:

- The road race has been moved from Bergen to Dogpound. It's a lot closer to Calgary, and shouldn't mean such a long day for everyone.

- Please consider volunteering or providing a volunteer on race day. We'll especially need drivers for the comm and wheel cars, as well as corner marshalls. Start talking to your significant other now... =)

- Unfortunately, there's now some significant building construction on the Downtown Crit course, so the crit will be on hiatus for this year. Bummer.

Stay tuned for the Volunteer sign-up link and Tech Guide.

Trev's doing some great work introducing people to cycling and building up their confidence on the road. Hopefully we'll see more of them our for WNS and ABA races in the near future!
