Trackfest II – Pre-Provincials Racing
Saturday, August 14th
We are hoping that this will be a fun event and we will be very flexible in allowing teams of mixed ages and genders. The idea is for maximum participation and competitive racing as much as possible as well as preparation for Provincial Track the following weekend in Burnaby. Because of the low registration numbers we will now be only holding the event on one day.
CATEGORIES: For Bunch races (Elimination, Points and keirin) riders of similar abilities will be placed in the same category A, B C and D.
For match sprints, riders will be grouped together based on flying 200 times
For timed events (time trial, individual pursuit) results will be grouped into age categories
(U13/U15/U17/U19/Senior/Masters A, B and C+)
RACE ORDER: For Bunch Races ( D / C / B / A), For match sprints (slowest grouping to fastest), For timed events (youngest to oldest)
OMNIUM EVENTS*: No omnium today. Will have an elimination race as well as a points race.
