January 15, 2009 (Burnaby, BC) – After a break for the holidays and surviving the roof collapse it’s now ON every Friday night at the Burnaby Velodrome for the next 10 weeks. The second Friday night season will start shortly and we will see if fall series champions, Kirk O’bee of Bissell (A group ), Ben “Cowboy” Cowburn of dEVo (B group), Ross “kiwi” Greenwood of Super Champion (C group ), and “Slammin” Sammy Collins of Super Champion (Novice group) can hold off all the strong challengers.
All will be in the hunt for $750 in cash prizes for the second half where riders will contest three to four races each night with a variety of shorter and longer endurance mass start races and a few sprint events thrown in for good measure. Racing starts at 6:30 pm with the novice group and 7pm for everyone else. Don’t forget your 2009 licence. Full details and race schedule can be found at www.burnabyvelodrome.ca
