Time Trial Series Data

Hi All,
A club member has taken the past 6 years of time trial results and produced a very cool time trial database. You can select the the course, the rider, the time trial to see who raced, what the times were, and even the overall time trial rankings per year. It is a very cool database, found here.
If you find any problems with your times, please double check the respective years time trial results, found on the right hand side of the page, if the result is incorrect there. Please email me the correction at, odds are I input it incorrectly into the spreadsheet initially.

Dove Creek Omnium Race Report and Results!

Hi All,
The Comox Valley Cycle Clubs annual Dove Creek Omnium had 53 riders enjoy sunny weather, great racing, and a successful fundraiser for Lac Megantic
Festivities started out Saturday morning with the Royston criterium; in Category C local rider Isaac Van der Vliet took the win over Victoria rider Brenna Pauly and other riders. In the Saturday afternoon 8 km Burns Road time trial Isaac and Brenna repeated the feat on the tough course to finish in 14:01 and 14:58. The Sunday Morning 52km Dove Creek road race the young duo dropped the two older riders with Isaac attacking on the hill only to have Brenna claw the distance back and pipping him at the line.
In Category B the Saturday criterium contested by 16 riders had many attacks and came down to out of town riders John Guthrie and Nick Kupiak, local rider Aaron Milan take 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. The time trial consisted of two laps of Burns Road (16.2 km) was won by local rider Kent Duncan in a time of 26:14. The final Sunday road race on Dove Creek went for 69 km and had attacks from the start. Local rider Damian Parlee initiated the final breakaway and was quickly joined by local rider Doug Merrick and out of town Nick Kupiak, in the final run up to the line Nick took the win over Damian after Doug came off the pace on the final climb.
In Category A criterium the 24 starters attacked from the get-go with solo attacks and team tactics, in the final to the line club alumni Jordan Duncan took the win over team-mate Alex Amiri (Russ Hay's/Accent Inn cycling Team). In the afternoon time trial Jordan again took the win in a blistering time of 24:08 with over half a minute over 2nd place Kerry White. In the 86 km Sunday morning road race had breakaway attacks and counterattacks. The final breakaway initiated by Russ Hay's/Accent Inn rider Craig Lunn took a couple other riders for the last couple of laps. On the final lap Craig dropped the rest of the riders as the charging pack swallowed all but himself and Matt Billinghurst, the bunch sprint won by Alex Amiri and Jordan Duncan.
The Saturday Evening BBQ fundraiser raised $600 for the town of Lac Megantic in Quebec and was enjoyed by both riders and volunteers. Food and draw prizes were donated by Quality Foods, Cariboo Brewing, Trail Bicycles, and Audrey Erlandson's Bi-Cycled Jewelry

Comox Valley Cycle Club - Omnium fundraiser for Lac Megantic‏

Hello everyone;
We have our Omnium on this weekend starting with the criterium Saturday morning and the time trial in the afternoon.  Hopefully most club members will be there to either race or  help out.
As you are aware the Quebec town of Lac Megantic was devastated by a train explosion last weekend.  A number of our club members have a personal connection with Lac Megantic as Junior and Para Road Nationals were held there the last two years.  Elite Nationals were lthere last year.  Gillian, Jordan, Joanna, Kia, Simon and myself have all been there.  It hits pretty close to home when half the criterium course is gone because the course went down the main street which was destroyed in the explosion.
Cycling Canada has undertaken a fund raising effort to assist the people of Lac Megantic.  Kelly and Joanna have received a donation of food from Quality Foods in Comox for a BBQ after the time trial tomorrow at the Dove Creek Hall.  We will be doing hamburgers, salads, drinks and some prizes.  Price will be $10 or whatever you feel able to donate.
Please either stay after your time trial, you have finished volunteering or come down.
The BBQ will start about 5:00 pm.  The Time Trial starts about 4:00 pm and will continue till about 5:45 pm so it should be a good time for most people.
Hope to see everyone there.
