Information Please!

We have a request from a rider who is going to be competing at the Track Nationals in Bromont for some track times (so that they can prepare schedules, gears choice, etc.). We have checked our Archives, and other sites (FQSC, Bromont Track), and guess what? No one has any times! All that seems to be available are points from Points Series events.

So, we are requesting that anyone who has times (track records, results of races, etc.) for events on the Bromont track please forward them to us at Alternatively, you can place them on the Forums. In particular, we are looking for timed events such as 500 and 1000 metre TT, Pursuits, Olympic Sprint and Flying 200s.
