The Pacific Cycling Centre in Victoria, BC, will be offering a new high performance track program, starting Wednesday, May 16th at the Juan de Fuca Velodrome.

The program will run every Wednesday from 9 am - 12 noon, with the sessions consisting of improving techniques, speed workouts and motor pacing. The sessions will be on a road bike or a TT bike.
