It'll be Groupo Compacto once more in Victoria on the July 5th weekend, as track racers from around the west coast converge once more for two days of high-speed racing. This time there is a truly exhaustive schedule, focused on an Omnium, Madison tournament and individual bunch races, with a purse of over $3,500 cash over two events (next is August 16th & 17th).
First up on Saturday will be a slightly abbreviated UCI Omnium, pitting riders in the Flying 200m, 500m ITT, 2km Pursuit, 5km Scratch and 10km Points races. The day will close with pairings of Madison and Bunch events. Sunday will continue on this theme, with five more varied Madisons, and six more Bunch events, from Keirins to a Points Race.
We're inviting riders of all levels, running A, B & C fields, and we're planning a separate Women's field as well. (Note: need at least 8 riders in a field to run individually. Otherwise will race with another field, but scored and awarded separately.)
Billeting is being offered to out-of-towners, we're welcoming riders from out of Province including Alberta, Washington and Portland! Come down, and wobble home on exhausted legs from the best racing the West Coast has to offer, here on beautiful Vancouver Island!
Online registration is mandatory (and due by Wed, July 2nd), and a draft schedule and race bible have been posted on our website - visit www.GVVA.bc.ca for more details.
See ya there!
