Brian Van Oene Crit No. 8 - '18

Hosted by Team Melissa 


A monstrously full effort BIG gooder Crit .  We had our share of attrition - broken spoke and blow'd up tubular took 2 racers out of the affair before it even started.   Three racers did a park ferme mid-race and yup - she was toasty out there.  Your BOA deplorables had iced water and adult bevvies for all - not a one was left over.   


It's official we are going to always have a Corner 2 Hag to ensure the gaggle of brown trucks and their demolition derby parking is governed whilst you race. Thank you huggie bear you look so adorable in the high viz vest with your .49 sunglasses.   


The following volunteers need kisses and hugs from you all. This Crit was ran so tight and efficient I was giddy.   


Also - we had a real show out there last night. Crit & TT stalwart Gary Wade took a good shot and held off a finish line sprint that had us all agape in amazement. Props Gary that was a well deserved win. He gave half his winnings to the thermobaric weapon Seth Cowie ( exact quote from GW " Seth worked his ass off - give him this " ) who in turn folded the bounty to the beer fund. Video will get loaded when I get the file from Sean Guidi.

BOA TT No. 8 - '18

Hosted by Loney & Prokop   


Host shop never called - never showed. Props   

Vehicular Management peoples had logistic issues - no show.   


Adapt , Improvise , Overcome   


With the monstrous help of Richard Loney - we proved that 2 dynamic peoples can run your TT race. A first as I'm quite sure no one has ever been the anti-gravity unit AND the North end Turnaround Hag. Go Fat Kid.   


As always - thanks to our racers - we've some hardies that never allow long weekends and shopping carts of excuses get in the way. They race and they smile and laugh.   


Weather was calm but the windsock showed some spurts - so it wasn't the golden shot of conditions.   


Notable laugh was the local gendarme cruiser that had a tuner punk pulled over for speeding at T intersection on northside. Once the filing and smiles were completed - Constable Smiles pulled up beside the turnaround and asked me   


CS - " what's going on ? "  


FK - " A bike race sir "  


CS - Big Smile " Did you see that I pulled over that kid for speeding ? "  


FK - " Yes sir - thank you "  


CS - " Well hopefully this slows 'em down for you guys. Have a good evening ".  


FK - " thank you ! ".   


And he pulls away. But during this convo - 1 racer was approaching turnaround - but saw the flashing red/blue and figured the following   

1. Brent's going to jail   

2. I don't wanna go with him   

3. I ain't hanging around for this   

4. He'll be fine in jail - he's ugly

 

And he turned around EARLY. Ha ha ha ha   We mutually agreed on an adjustment time factor post-race and it is net in results. What a laugh. 😃😃

BVO Crits   

Hosted by Cyclepath   


Try as it might - the blustery spit of rain cannot stop our fun. Yes it rained in town around 5 - and yes it wasn't supposed to rain. It stopped and we rolled the last Hill Climb of 2018.   

Juney is a longer stretched out HC - not as sassy or mouthy as Knoxo. She's got 2 nasty pitches at Luxemore and on the final stretch. Other than that it's governing your powerplant from blowing a gasket.   


The animal was released again last night - Seth Cowie raged and still had time to chat on the way up. Holy Moly.   


We also had a Single Speed racer and that was bloody awesome.   


Props to 10 yr olf Joshua - he was my security detail. Rolling 49 refrigerated half liter tins in backpack - one needs protection from warring thugs who would yell " Stand and Deliver ". Joshua had a super awesome climb and everyone topside got to partake in the cold golden bounty.

A @#%ing Westerly made our racers really work for the results. Calm then gust then surge only to sputter. As Eric Rayson said " we can't change it - just race in it ".   So when you read the times below - factor add some nasty gusts.  


Some old faces showed up - some Provicial Champ jerseys showed up. I love our racing community - we have some awesome human beings in our collective. Thanks always the volys - thank you.

Hosted by Fresh Air Concept   


Yup - the weather snorted, wheezed, roared, and spit - but never did it stop the BVO Crits. The diehards showed up - and rewarded they did bounty. Props to ALL the volys and ALL the racers. She was blasty fast out there.   


Chief of Race made the call and the Start/Finis went Old School along the straightaway. As a racer it makes for a faster Corner 4 - as a voly/spectator the speed these cats generate is exponential compared to topside.   


The monster was released again last night - Mr. Seth Cowie decided to make it a show. The kid from Melbourne hung on and the chase group never had a chance. Fast racing lads.   


Honestly we could have our Air Boss and CoR run these Crits just the two of them. Yours truly was getting corrected on who the rider up was . Thank you ladies I am an idiot. Ha ha   


All we had was an A Group - so the prizing was pooled.  Racers please note we call " pack primes " so when you hear a Prime Bell go off - NEVER assume the " dudes in front have it ". Never.

A good showing of riders considering many of the usuals were in travel to Chicoutimi for U19 Nationals. A funky Westerly that had racers commenting on it's substance post-race.   


Best of all local grommet Erik Haaheim had but hours earlier had both his forearm casts removed - and went TT racing. He suffered a flat durting race and still brought her home. A Gordie Howe hat trick if I ever did hear of one. Props Erik.   


Between Hip Pointer and JT - our voly crew looked like we sent the bus to Missionwood Retirement Resort :-D . Just ask JT about his Sunday Round the Lake casual roll with Dalton. . .   


Also - I have no idea what the eff is going on for gravel loads on Old Vernon - but I am having to sweep the start chute of crud at EVERY race. Geez. Just hope it's faring better on rest of tarmac loop.

Hosted by Team Vagtastic Voyage

  

What an awesome community of riders & volys we have here in the Okanagan. Quite a few peeps from Penticton and Vernon came into K for our Crit action. Shayne Wright even helped voly . Props indeed.  


The weather is as it's always this time of year - a brooding mess of seeming fury that alas putters out and allows for good racing fun.  


The Wedgers are loving life and their own little hunk of Jim Bailey time.  


And best of alll - our topside Command & Control was all female brass - and they handled it with laughs. Thank you ladies - you make us all look good - but never as good as you all.  Remember folks - C&C is tabulating/managing 3 separate groups for race time, primes, finish placings. As the groups split and mingle - this is no easy task.

A humid outing. Lot's of interesting characters at the base of Knox on a Tuesday night. Notable was the older fellow on a Segway with US Postal panniers scooting up Knox Mtn Drive like he owned the place. Head shaker   


Special nod to the following peoples - the volys we get are super dooper human beings - even if they're being forced by their boss to work voly. Ha ha Some of you will get the nickname connection - others will have never even heard of the TV show.

Hosted by Team Vagtastic Voyage  


Okay a lot to get posted here - so off we go.   


WEDGE GROUP   

Is now a staple. Whilst last night's numbers won't show it - the post-race discussions had 6 firm members kibbutzing about next week. Placings , primes , and incentive to nip at the A Group's heels.   


SUFFERFEST  

Ratings wise - 10 x $ 10 buck primes rates a tire width behind the elimination Crit for pure misery. Our A Group race was a blasty fast one last night. Remember - if it was easy no one would show up.   


PAPARAZZI   

Luke & Stacey were at Crit last night - and pix were taken.   The gnome-garden-KOM killer Derek was too. They're both now admins so hopefully we see some visuals posted soon.   


FUN   

Last night was the 1st time this year I got to plunk myself in Command & Control for a Crit - and it was a blast. Thanks to to ladies for keeping on top of multiple multiple groups and calling and sighting primes. Our aim is for everyone to have a good time - even if they suffer during the race. My write-up banter is always to keep it fresh and entertaining - but I do make mistakes. Smile as I bash the keyboard away.

perseverance [pur-suh-veer-uh ns]   noun  1.steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement.  


Doubleshot of perseverance last night.   

1. The crud of Corner 1 was fully swept from before the driveway and apex all the way along to McKenzie. Some safety now for all of you rolling Old Vernon.   

2. No matter the numbers - the TTs continue. Whether it's school activities or post race voids - there's a number of regulars that will eventually show.   


Folks we had blister conditions last night. A limp windsock at the areodrome and a baby-smooth Corner 1. All 3 racers rocked and Sethy did another mid 19 to keep us all smiling.   


Props to Erik - this lad really helped out.

June Springs Hill Climb No. 1 - '18

Hosted by Kelowna Cycle Old Guard & assorted deplorables

 

Laughs - a tonne thereof - and records broken. 


The hype came to fruition and two goofballs strapped twenty ( 20 ) half liter tins to their body and did the climb. Props to Curtis Dodd and myself for just not giving a sh&t what the fashion police said. We carried 10 liters of beer each topside. And it was refrigerated too . .  yes we looked like wanna be suicide bombers - thank goodness neither of us know Arabic . 


The highmark is at 10 liters - but by the post-race talk - the next JS Hill Climb June 28th and Knox Hill Climb June 12th - will likely see this number fall. The following new rules apply for those of you thinking of attacking the Domestique King Kong KOM. 


- all liquids must be refrifgerated - warm tins = DSQ
- backpacks allowed
- SAFETY 1st not 3rd. Don't be strapping an actual keg to your back - it weighs 160 pounds there snackshack.
- all items carried topside must be shared with volys, fellow racers, spectators.
- be creative 


There are photos from last night - Tamara and Trisha are now admins. So photos will get uploaded - but be warned. Graphic content - viewer discretion is advised. Small children may cry in horror. . ha ha ha 


without further ado . . I have many many a voly to thank.

Yup - the weather was sketchy, and everyone was in recovery mode from a waist-deep amount of events from the weekend. 

As always - we runned the TT cause she will never die on my watch. 


Special props to all that were in attendance - volys, bystanders, racers.  Headwind on way out and flat on way back. High humidity and a spit of rain apres race.  


Also - we were fortunate enough to have one of the New Zealand CX National Team members on site. And yes - he did steal a tall tin , and no he didn't sign autographs.

Brian Van Oene Criterium No. 4 - '18

Hosted by Kelowna Cycle Old Guard  


Points of Note  


WEDGE Group  

This is going to stick. Whilst last night we only had our Wedge President rolling it - the potential is there. Three A Groupers could have been in the Wedge - and it would have been good racing. Gordo has some ideas for the group - for prizing and placings - so keep posted.  


VOLUNTEERING 

If your Bike Shop Chief slates you for voly action - and you show up and just race ( even after I asked you to voly ) - you have failed in my books. I've worked all 6 events this year - nothing you say or do - excuses dropping the ball. The year end Annual is going to have a Shame List - and last night's wondrous putz made the list.  


On the opposite side of voly action . . .  Special Thanks to the amazing couple David & Monica Nelson who eptimiize what we love in volunteers. They have been amazing in the two events they've worked already !!  


NATURE CONSERVATION  

Pictured above is " Jim Bailey " . Our resident Momma Bear Melissa rescued him crossing the road ( during race ) and they looked for a nest. No dice. So after getting a whole lot of love and snuggles during race - Jim was taken to Fairfield Hospital for rehab and a new chance. I just pray Carli never takes Melissa to the Mall - cause she'll find some lost elderly person and want to take her home - ha ha ha kidding.  Thank you Melissa you are an awesome human being.

Perfect weather. Windsock was limp , Sun was out , and everyone is saving themselves for a weekend of compounded events of conflicted interest. This weekend alone is Hayman Classic, Okanagan Shuswap Century Ride, and Provincials TT and Crit. Most important of these events is JAFNRs Trail Day No. 8 ( yes we've already done SEVEN days of gruntwork in Crawford for your riding pleasure ) - so if you want to be a part of some epic work - contact me.   


As soon as this post goes up - a few raceday posters are being uploaded. You best pay attention to our next few events. Giddy up it's going to be a barrel of laughs.   


Props again to all listed below. Cannot say it enough that the community makes our events happen. Also we've been witness to a 2nd sub 20 minute TT this year - only Cory and Cyrus used to bang 'em off like Mr. Cowie is. That's two sub 20 minute TTs in three events. We are lucky to have this dude around.

Brian Van One Crit No. 3

Hosted by Lake Country Cycle  

Post debrief write-up is going to be a tad longer than usual. A lot to cover.   


ADAPT & IMPROVISE   

We're always trying to work our races so the supporters have fun and the racers are challenged and embrace the suck.   


PRIMES   

Everyone knows our Primes are never the same and can happen anytime - your Air Bosses make the call. I stand behind what they do no matter. If they miss 1 full Crit of Primes and call every lap a Prime on the next - I'd say you're almost a Spartan if you survive. So smile.   


ENVIRONMENT  

In almost every ride call for JAFNR - as is one of our policies - the mantra is stated " Enhance your environment - don't pollute it ". Our Start / Finish area is a common ground for supporters AND volunteers to enjoy our racing. If you plunk your arse in this locale and 1. not voly ever and 2. critique aloud every rider that goes by - you and I will lock horns sooner than later. If you've nothing nice to say about Joe Hunch Back or Sally Seat Too High - SHUT your mouth.   


You're in OUR friendly zone of fun.   We are a grassroots racing venue that is open to any and all that want to have fun. We've been on this course over 25 years - and on my watch - she's not stopping anytime soon.   

Please read this as polite constructive criticism - cause if I'm told it happens again - you and I get to have a little chat. I'm too fecking busy to tolerate this - so my candor will be frank and the outcome will not be pretty.   


INTERMEDIARIES   

Our B Group needs a tweaking. There are racers that are too fast for Bs and not always there in As. We now have a new category. The Wedge. Wedge Racers will start 15 seconds after As and 15 seconds before Bs. I want our B Group to be clear of peoples that grenade it.   At Race Start we'll let you know where you size up based on prior racing.   


ELIMINATION LAPS  

This format gets some racers giddy and other racers puke. If and when we do this - there has to be 35+ racers and it will be a race start call. Only after 20 minutes will we start remoive 1 racer per lap. Yes you spend money to come race - yes our $5 entry fee can't even buy you a poofy whip cream Latte - yes it's good for you.   


Last night's venue was awesome . Again I'm blown away by the dedicated volys that make YOUR racing happen. My call-out is Craig Horon. This stallion has been helping the Fat Kid flag every race. E v e r y race people. Craig doesn't drink beer - so the next time you see him - comment how shiny and waxed you think his Subaru is. Don't make fun of his flowing locks - he gets that at work all day. . . thank you sir for your help.   


Emily - you missed picking up your race winnings. We'll have them for you next week.

BOA TT Series Knox Mtn. Hill Climb No. 1

Hosted by Mountain Equipment Coop       


There's a former annual competition the Royal Navy ( if you have to ask what country - stop now and feel shame ) ran. The Field Gun Competition. There are some fantastic YouTube videos of it before it's demise.      

Essentially it was two groups of competitors that run - climb - gap - and tunnel a 900 + lb Field Gun with ammunition carriage - back and forth an obstacle course 3 times. Assemble - disassemble - zip line across course - climb walls - you name it. It pitted groups like Fleet Air Arm vs Portsmouth and trust me - it filled the stadium with fans and military members alike. Were they drinking whilst watching ? - I frigging hope so. 


The teamwork required to complete this course is without parallel. Yes injuries - and very bad ones occured - but you're zip lining a 900 lb gun with two blokes as ballast ?!      My point is - it is the paramount of what teamwork can be. I got a super strong sense of such a cohesive unit tonight.   Both racers and volys alike. No I'm not drunk - it was just very cool to see a sense of community on both sides.      


We also had the treat of watching our solo Domestique haul 6 tall tins up Knoxy like a true pirate. . . Yarrrggh

Brian Van Oene Crit No. 2

tor-rent [tawr-uh nt, tor-]   noun

1. a stream of water flowing with great rapidity and violence.   

2. a rushing, or abundant and unceasing stream of happy banter from the big mouthed Fat Kid ( 10 out of 10 Crit racers surveyed agreed it's a very BIG mouth 😁 )


Brian Van Oene Crtierium No. 2 for 2018  

Hosted by Lake Country Cycle  http://www.lakecountrycycle.ca/

  

The torrent at Bubna Rd ( Corner 3 ) is .5 meter from overflowing the bridge up to AJ Forsythe & Russell Metals. Site Engineer Craig Horon calls it for when it will happen not if. Seems the fabricating businesses up there agree - hence the Elephant Graveyard of rebar-puked on flatdecks lining both sides of the road from Corner 3 to Corner 4.   


Props to all vehicular traffic last night as they all worked with the flow of the race and not one errant driver went clockwise.   


IF the torrent washes out the bridge - the brainstormers in long-rage planning at the 2nd Floor offices of BOA have a contigency plan on alternate site or two. As a teaser - an Aussie Pursuit RR on our TT course . . . heh heh  We'll keep a watch on this - and will advise if need be,   


Also - no sarcastic pommies were harmed with bags of citrus fruit last night - as the rain kept bay. Although it would have been wicked to have had a fire pit at Start / Finish as it was THAT cold.

And please rub your eyes and re-read the scary fast rocket that is the Sethinator. Proof positive that Trainer Road pockets you REAL results through the Winter - unlike this inflated hollow shite called Zwift.

BOA TT No. 1

Hosted by Lake Country-Cycle

Great turnout for race one. Some old faces and some new ones.The windsock at the aerodrome was showing a slight westerly but calmed down. Heavy air of humidity always May is. So our racers made the best of it and some holeshot first season times already. 


Our 6 delineators made the Fat Kid most happy with the buffer they created between start chute riders & traffic.
