Alberta Time Standards

After two events for athletes to complete their Alberta Time Standards, many have been very successful at their qualification attempts.  Congratulations to everyone that has now completed their time standards.

Time Standard #1: Argyll Velodrome, Edmonton – May 28, 2008: the first attempt at time standards was meet with strong winds that make qualification times difficult but rewarding for those that we able to complete them.  Athletes from Calgary, Edmonton, Fort St. John BC, and Regina Sask, were all present to make their track standard times to qualify for ABA road projects.  Thanks to the help of Dave Embury, Jerry Jendzjoswky, Dylan Menard, Gail Wozny, and the parents and coaches of the Juventus Cycling Club for making the evening a success for all the athletes.

 Time Standard #2: Glenmore Velodrome, Calgary – May 29, 2008: After strong winds at the 1st standards night in Edmonton, athletes were blessed with perfect weather conditions (Hot  & Calm) for the 2nd attempt at ABA time standards.  Again, athletes from Calgary, Edmonton, Fort St. John BC, and Regina Sask, all made the journey to Calgary to attempt their track standard times to qualify for ABA road projects. Thanks to the help of Dennis Gregory, Jim Smith, and the parents and coaches of the Olympic Oval National Cycling Centre program for making the evening a success for all the athletes.
