Indoor Racing Series

    Fall/Winter Racing Series

    The Peak Centre Indoor Racing Series is back for it’s 13th season. Once again riders from east and west will have an opportunity to challenge each other on the same courses for GC and stage titles starting with heats in Vancouver BC, Surrey BC, Squamish BC, Portland OR, Ottawa ON, Montreal QU, Chicago IL, Verona WI and White Bear Lake MN. The original time trial course will be the only course that is repeated throughout the series. Every other course will be new for the series. Riders will race in waves of 6 to determine the results of each weekly stage with the results appearing on this page. Stage, General Classification (GC) and point leaders in different categories will be presented along the way to see who the leaders are based on the times posted, points collected and individual improvements. The results will be divided into 4 categories: men’s and women’s A’s and B’s. The 21 week indoor race series (9 weeks in fall and 12 weeks in winter) is designed for fun and fitness. Starting October 2015 and running into March 2016 you can race head to head with 6 riders at a time on linked CompuTrainers at The Peak Centre. The series is for all levels of ability so come for the racing or come for the training and social aspect of it. Everyone is welcome so book your heat and start time by calling the Peak Centre in Ottawa at 613-737-7959 or 604-299-7959 in Vancouver.

    Location: We’re no longer in Burnaby! This Winter’s series will take place at
    Momentum Fitness, 1762 West 8th Avenue @ Burrard Street, Vancouver, BC, V6J 1V6.

    Note: Due to a change in facility for the Winter series, the IRS will no longer accommodate a drop in session structure. Specific time slots must be booked for the 12 week program.

    Course

    • Races run on Mondays and Tuesdays and in heats of 6. See schedule for heat times.
    • Courses will vary in length between 20km and 30km so count on average 1hr of CompuTrainer time including warm up.
    • The Time Trial course will be ridden twice to determine improvement and to help riders gauge their level of fitness.
    • Categories will be decided using the guidelines detailed below. Riders can also request a particular category.

    Categories

    There will be an A, B & C category for men and an A & B category for women (depending on numbers in each category).

    Basic category descriptions

    Riders will be adjusted into a specific category after a profile has been established based on their TT.

    “A” Category guide lines

    • Top 10 riders in the first TT
    • Racers who train 8+ hrs/week in any discipline
    • Self seeded “A” racers
    • “B” racers who finish in the top 5 of overall gender stage results in the first 4 stages will be moved up

    “B” Category guide lines

    • Beginners
    • Self seeded B racers
    • Racers who train less than 8+ hrs/week in any discipline
    • “A” racers asking to down grade and who finish in the bottom of the A field

    Race Rules

    • GC will be calculated on points using the formula outlined below.
    • Points will be determined based on order of stage finish as follows: 30, 25, 22, 20, 18, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 5 pts for everyone else who starts
    • Lantern Rouge (last place rider on stage): 6 pts (1 pt in addition to the 5 pts for starting)
    • PB on TT day…3pts. Riders are eligible for PB points providing they have ridden one prior TT that season to establish a benchmark time
    • Final GC points will be based on all  9 finishes of the 9 stages in each of the Fall and  series. In the event of a Tie in GC, the person with the fastest time in the Final series TT moves ahead

    Other notes

    • Drafting function must be turned off to allow for equal competitions.
    • In the event that a rider rides twice in one stage, the time from the best ride will be used
    • Riders will be responsible for paying for all the heats booked even if they do not start
    • Racers who have already completed a heat may ask to race “stand by” in later heats that are not full. In this case, they will only be billed for one start on the day. However, there are no guarantees that a spot will become available. Stand by will be left up to the staff on the day of the heat and can only be requested on that day
    • Riders who are not part of the GC can still take part and will still have their times posted for the day
    • Riders do not need to race all races to be eligible for the lead because the race is based on points and will now be based on the all 9 of your stage finishes
    • To be eligible for any prizes, riders must have taken part in at least 7 stages
    • Unused portions of packages at the end of the series expire and are non-refundable
    • Any disputes regarding points or prizes will be reviewed by Peak with the final decision reached by this panel standing as the final word
    • The overall results of each weekly stage will appear on www.peakcentrevancouver.ca/winter-race-series. GC updates will be tabulated after each stage
    The Peak Centre reserves the right to cancel a class at any time if minimum participant numbers are not met.
