MARCH forth

It's March, it's gray out, but the forecast high is 12 on Wednesday. Nationals for kidlets is getting super close. World Champs just finished up - where we had double Juve representation, so in order to continue to maintain this level you need to do rollers. 

So Sunday 9:00am - show up early! Rollers are in high demand - shiny blue mats for underneath

More details on the final bit of December.

Wednesday the 20th will be the after-school Christmas special about a young rider on the brink of  serious trouble who no longer believes in the power of riding his bicycle absolutely nowhere. Will a visit from an old family friend restore his faith? Starts Wednesday at 7pm  mountain, 6:30 eastern.. 

Sunday the 24th - no rollers, no anything.  

Wednesday the 27th - Boxing week, 50 % off the regular workout. so twice as many intervals 

New Year's eve - the 120 intervals of Christmas. eggnog, intervals , repeat.  

Posted on December 19, 2017 .

From Dec 11 all the way till 31

As we wait and see how long winter is going to continue to  'mail it in' we still have rollers on Wednesday 700 and Sunday 900! 

If this keeps up we might be riding the track in January! 

Added bonus! Since you are missing the triple "s" core workout provided by hours of shovelling, sweeping and sanding we have added some quality core time to Sunday's workout!

Also Christmas eve, no rollers, yes - we would ask you to work a casino, but never to do rollers.. also we are getting the place cleaned that morning, so take the morning off and raise your egg nog tolerance. You will need it for the Dec 31 120 intervals of Christmas... there will be egg nog, and prizes*, and intervals. 

See you there!

Jeff

* prizes may vary, show up on Sunday the 31st for more details

Wed Dec 6th & Sun Dec 10th

Time to start preparing for the Western Challenge or some Burnaby related activity in the new year, and more importantly to train for the 120 intervals of Christmas which is just around the corner.. So we can start raising lactate tolerance.. You can work on your egg nog tolerance on your own time... 

Anyway we roller on Wednesday night with sprint fest at 7:00 maybe some keirin work. Riding the motorbike on rollers isn't nearly as easy as it looks... 

Sunday enduro + super core at 9:30....

If you don't finish your rollers you can't win medals... how can you win any medals if you don't finish your rollers?

Wed Nov 15 & Wed Nov 19

 

We did have some additional snow over night so the turn 3 runs are fully operational. There are still some natural hazards on the face of turn two, so we are still reporting early season conditions on the north end of the track. 

There will be rollers on Wednesday night at 7:00, some more super speedy work to get that top top speed up...

Sunday will be enduro day. starting at 9:30
