Winding down(sorta)

Written By on August 13, 2017

Last week was a busy one. First we had the hugely successful second running of the Midsummers Cross Race at Diver Lake Park.  An amazing event.  Despite the heat and smoke we had a great turn out, lots of volunteers to make set up a breeze leaving plenty of time for racers to pre-ride the course.  Also a huge turn out of racers with 113 taking the line and kicking up dust.  That number includes the Zoom Zooms and the Half lappers that made sure Norm warmed up for his race He had to to drop that Megaphone because they?

MIVA/Coal City Crit #5

Written By on May 16, 2017

Well the weather certainly turned around for us tonight.  After Mondays taste of winter I wasn’t sure we were going to have a race when I got up this morning.  However it turned out to be the best night so far. Slightly smaller field than last week with more locals coming out and less making the drive down from Comox we had 16 riders take the start line. It was a 35 lap race with two Primes up for grabs mid race.  On the sixth lap we rang the bell and Janna jumped to take the sprint and grab a? Read More

MIVA/Coal City Crit #4 35laps

Written By on May 9, 2017

The weather finally cooperated. We had an excellent turn out this evening with 19 riders taking the start line.  Comox Valley was well represented with six riders carpooling down for the race and putting in a strong showing. It was a 35 lap, hold on to your toe straps, fast paced race.  With no primes on the line to save up for it was a series of almost constant attacks with riders testing the waters and trying to make a break stick.  Halfway through the race it appeared as though Sean Lunny and Nick Kupiak were going to get away?

MIVA Crit Race Clinic

Written By on April 11, 2017

Well the weather held out for the first race of the season. We had an excellent turn out for our first race.  We had 29 riders on course including two new youth riders.  Once again Janna with the help of Nick Kupiak ran a beginners clinic before the race.  Tied up as I was at registration I missed it this year. After two neutral laps (should have been 28) to try and warm up in the brutally cold wind the pack was off. With Nick making an early attack to test the waters, he was quickly reeled in by the?

Written By on August 16, 2016

If you build it, they will come. Norm’s dream of bringing Cross back to Diver Lake in the dead of summer proved this to be true. A huge turnout (SELL OUT) and one of the best courses designed on the island had people raving for next years race, with suggestions of overnighter doubleheaders, other additional locales, and much more. One of the remarks overheard most often was that the course maximized the venue size better than anyone imagined, with the Le Mans style start spreading the group out early.
