CANCELLED NOW: Tuesday Night Race – Team Night – May 31

Sorry as a last minute edit: this event is cancelled due to the wind conditions

Hey it’s time for Team Night this coming Tuesday. Team Night means more fun – it’s the dark colours (black, blue, green) vs the light colours (white, yellow, baby blue). All the victory goes to the Team with the first person at the Summit in each group.

I am making a few modifications to the course given the weather, etc.. It’s forecasted to be a bit windy on Tuesday, but the wind is going to die down by 7 pm and more so by 8 pm.

We will start in Lumsden for this one but on a shorter course (<30 km). Start time is also delayed by 15 minutes so that people have extra time to get into town. Start time : 645 pm. Meet by the Lumsden High School where you can find parking (no later than 6:30 pm). I will be working on setting up a few course things in the meantime.

Here is the course on Strava: https://www.strava.com/routes/2966356737344294312

There will be no Gravel on this one… We will head out for a ride towards out of town on Lumsden… When we approach the Gravel section… we will slow down Neutral (making sure there are no cars), and turn around, head up James Street Climb, this time turning around at the end of the Neighborhood block where it’s paved, and head down.. We next will head towards Craven, and turn around by the 641 restaurant. With a Summit Finish at the top of the Old Highway Climb.

As it is a Team Night, pre-registration will be important so that I can make teams in Advance. Please either private message me on Facebook, reply to this post, or email me directly at eric.sy @ outlook dot com by 10 am Tomorrow at the latest. I will let people know of their Team Assignments (either light or dark coloured jerseys) in a Facebook post by 3 pm Tomorrow. If you don’t message me, please bring two coloured jerseys (one light, one dark).
