BURNABY VELODROME YOUTH TRAINING CAMPS

Written By on October 19, 2012
Cycling BC will be running the highly popular fall/winter camps at the Burnaby Velodrome. The first camp will be held over three days from November 9-11, 2012, and will be run by Cycling BC and Burnaby Velodrome coaches.

Included in the camp will be multiple track training sessions in addition to the weekend Superior Glass Track Classic. The main focus of the camp will be learning essential track skills with an emphasis on team pursuit and team sprint. This camp is the first in a nation-wide program to serve as talent identification for the national track program, with an eye towards identifying possible 2016 and 2020 athletes.

Any riders interested in taking part are asked to send an application via email to Cycling BC development coach Jeff Ain at jeff(at) cyclingbc.net. Space is limited, and these camps have sold out for the past three seasons. Cost will be approximately $70, including camp, race entry, bike rental (if required) and is open to riders 13-18.

It will be an action packed weekend at the Burnaby Velodrome with the Cycling BC youth camp and national talent ID, as well as the BVC free U-13 camp, and the feature event: the Superior Glass Track Classic.
