Forest City Velodrome November News London, Ontario

Expanded Rec Sessions

Sunday Rec Sessions will begin on December 2nd. The 2 hour session is from Noon - 2 pm. Rob Fournier is going to look after the time slot as Session Leader. Thanks Rob and crew for stepping forward to look after this very popular Sunday session. If you would like to assist Rob please email or talk to Rob on Tuesday nights.

The Sunday morning Sport Rec Pace Line Session will get underway on Sunday December 9th. Chris Vlemmix and Brian Kelly are Session Leaders for this training time spot. The Velodrome will be open at 9:30 am - noon.

The Sport Pace Line is a great way to prepare for the 2008 Road Season. This 2 _ hour session will feature 2 pace lines on the track at different speeds. This depends on the abilities of the riders who attend the session. The expected speeds will be 33-35 kph & 37-40 mph. It is recommended that you attend the Thursday night Sport Rec Sessions as a way to prepare yourself for the Sport Pace Line on Sunday mornings. The Sunday Sessions are drop in.

Devo Weekend Starts This Weekend - Nov 16-18

Over 60 racers are expected to attend the 3 day race weekend starting Friday night at 7 pm. Dubbed a Devo (development) is far from the truth. These racers are coming out this weekend to have one thing in mind:

1. Improve their times in all TT events
2. Start preparing for Junior Worlds in South Africa in 2008

The racing will be hot and heavy as Ontario's top track racers will compete in a series of races to determine the overall best racer in the Omnium Competition. When you come to watch the action, you will see riders as young as 10 years old (Velo-kids) racing as hard as our Elite Racers. Word has it, a couple of Americans will be racing. It should be a very entertaining weekend.

Check out our website for updated information.

Saturday November 24th at 7 pm and Sunday November 25th at 12pm

This will be an event you will not want to miss as this is the last race weekend before Winter Nationals in February.

There are many new racers at the Velodrome and many are recent graduates from the University of Western Ontario. Jobs seem to be hard to come by. If you and your company are in a position to help, please email and we will make sure the riders in need will be forwarded to you. Just another way to help out cyclists in need.
