Tuesday night crit racing is back after a long hiatus. ERTC has secured and insured use of the research-park loop for 8 weeks starting this Tuesday (May 20) through until July 15 (no race there on Canada Day).
Members of clubs registered with the ABA are welcome to compete for bragging rights. There are no upgrade points available and we’re keeping the registration fee to a twoonie so there won’t be prizes until the season finale… aka the “World-Championships of the Tuesday-Night Universe”. Please stick your club membership card or racing license in your wallet so you can show it to us at registration.
Please do not arrive to the research park until after 5h30pm (when the majority of traffic has already left the area) and feel free to warm up on the loop. Ideally if you’re bringing a friend out for their first ever race you can spend some time teaching them a few skills before the races get underway. We will have two races, one slightly shorter one first intended for less experienced racers and another slightly longer and likely faster race second intended for cyclists who have a fair bit of experience under their belts. The first will begin at 6h15 (approx) and duration will be 20-30min. The second race will begin after at approx 6h45-7h00.
The schedule for clubs providing volunteers for the races is listed below. If your club is well represented at the crits expect to be asked to provide volunteers for at least one week. Better yet, volunteer yourself and your club by emailing Joshua @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
