A statement on the smoke situation. We will follow the ABA's guidelines on Air Quality, which means if the AQHI is 8 or above, or the Orgnaize/Commissaires deem the air to be too bad, we will cancel the race.
For now, we fully expect to be racing tomorrow. The observed smoke in the forecast region today is much less than the forecast, and the forecast through the weekend continues to stay in the acceptable zone.
We will do a smoke assessment tomorrow once we are on site. If it is borderline, we will consider reducing distances ridden before outright cancellations.
I will say that I was at the Pigeon Lake Road Race a few weeks back, where the smoke was much worse, and we still got in a great day of racing.
You should plan to show up ready to race. But if you have high risk to smoke, you may want to reconsider your participation this weekend based on the conditions tomorrow.
Stampede Road Race Rodeo and Provincial Road Masters Championships are back to the original route is the rolling hills of Madden Alberta. Can we get a YAH-HOO!!!
Pedalhead Bicycle Works will be on-site with a tent for neutral mechanical support.

A new group for Crankmasters: the Crankmissus - a women’s only group! This new group will be lead by Dawn Heinemeyer and will be on Sundays. I am offering a social ride for women who want to ride with other women, learn, improve their skills and enjoy each others company in a testosterone-free setting (no offence boys). For those who want to target an event or race, I will be there to help guide you. The Crankmissus Sunday rides will be posted on the website calendar with locations and distances to be determined. I look forward to riding with you in 2023!
We have joined forces with Devon from Algi Foods. You may have seen Devon last year at one of our WNS races. He is now a Crankmaster member and will be out and about frequently giving out samples of his product. These are great products and if you want to order a steady supply, please see Devon, or go to their website www.algifoods.com. He can take orders and deliver orders at our events or whenever you need. Let's support local and Devon!
