*** CANCELLED *** WNS Series 1, Race 3: Road Race
  • 6:30pm MDT - 8:30pm MDT May 24th, 2017
  • **DUE TO CURRENT WEATHER CONDITIONS, THIS RACE IS CANCELLED**

    This hilly, fun course builds on the fitness gained in this season’s previous WNS races. It consists of 1-3 loops depending on category travelling clockwise. Elevation change is 105m. Enjoy a terrific hill shortly after you enter 192 St S. Keep focused so you don’t get dropped. At the top, glance at the scenery, but pull over if you need to savour it, remember you’re in the ‘world championships’ and other riders will want to pass!

    Take extra care at the fast 242 Ave corner, the road has partly disintegrated to gravel. At Hwy 22 stay on the shoulder – the highway traffic is speedy and busy. Smooth pavement on the shoulder will encourage a brisk pace. Finally, on the flats just before the last hill descending to the parking area is the finish line.
