Comox Valley Cycling Club season off to a fast start

It was a perfect start to the Comox Valley Cycle Club’s new race season April 16 when a large turnout of 15 riders (young and old, new and experienced) gathered for a time trial on Headquarters Road.

The warm winter served as a strong preparation for the 2015 cycling season. First and second places were decided by less than one second.  Every athlete gave it their all in this “Race Of Truth.”

The time trial series continues Thursday, April 23 at the Dove Creek location.

The first major road race of the year will be held Saturday, April 25 on the Tsolum circuit.

Racers from all over the Island are expected to attend, with divisions from Beginners to Experts. Visit comoxvalleycycleclub.ca for more details.

1. Ray Wagner, 23min, 59sec. 2. Kent Duncan 24.00. 3. John Van Der Vliet 25:09. 4. Dan Wilson 25.29. 5. Scott Flemming 25.54.
