Well.... another year has begun for our canadian track team . This isn't the first actual official event of the year (that distinction goes to Glen and Alex the six day duo ), but we are doin our best to bring in 2001 in style as well.
We (27 athletes and 3 coaches) are based in Burnaby for the next 10 days, with 22 of us lodging and staying at the YMCA Camp Howdy in Port Moody. The training camp will be based at the Harry Jerome Sports Centre (Burnaby indoor velodrome), with racing starting tonight, training Monday to Wednesday and more racing on Thursday and Saturday of next week.
Most of the group arrived here last night (20 of us), 4 from Edmonton, 14 from Calgary and Alex Maurais from Montreal . Three from Victoria will join us today, with 6 locals from Vancouver rounding out the group. For the racing we expect some riders from the USA to join us.
This camp and racing will be an excellent way to begin the year, renew old acquaintences, and of course enjoy the surroundings at CAMP HOWDY !!
