Race #7: Aldergrove Road Race - Mar 21, 2004

The hilly Aldergrove circuit was blessed some amazing weather this weekend. Clear skies and sunshine took the temperatures up to 18°C during the race. Legwarmers, vests, and sleeves were all tossed as the racing heated up.

In the A Group, riders had 20 laps of the 7km circuit with one noticeable hill at the start/finish. The pack stayed in tact for the first half of the race, with Scott Slater (Rocky Mountain) out on a solo attack for a few laps, then Scott LaLiberte (Schwalbe), Brad Issel (Symmetrics Cycling), and Beau Whitehead (FirstMortgage) trying their luck for a few more. Then it was Dylan Sebel and Scott Goguen (Symmetrics Cycling) taking off, with roughly 2/3 of the race done. The pack chased hard down Zero Ave for a few laps, keeping the break at 30 seconds for the next few laps. Finally, with two laps to go the break was reeled in, followed by a massive counterattack from Marsh Cooper, Will Routely (Symmetrics Cycling) and Corey Lange (Marco Polo). This threesome would storm the final lap together, with Cooper picking up the win, Routely in second, and a well-worked over Lange in third.

In the B Group, dEVo/Powerbar showed why it's one of the most exciting teams on the road for development talent. Jeremy Storie's squad was active all day, well represented in breaks. For the last 5 laps, it was Mike Burns demonstrating that a good winter of training really does pay off. Burns was on the attack and dropped his companions, solo-ing it in for the last lap. 16 year old Jackson Beuhler (dEVO/Powerbar) had another great ride to take second and secure first overall in the B Group Omnium.

Race #6: Atomic Road Race - Mar 20, 2004

Strong winds set the stage for a hard day of racing, as Omnium Stage #1 got way at the Atomic Race course in Langley. The rolling hills and strong crosswinds shredded the fields, as the hard men and women came to the front in their respective races.

In the A Group, a major selection occured on lap 3 of 13, with a strong group getting away. Symmetrics lead the way placing riders Marsh Cooper, Min Van Velzen, Cam Evans, Dylan Sebel, Brad Issel, Will Routely, and Scott Goguen into the lead group. Dylan Sebel and Matt Usborne (Rocky Mountain), dueled it out for a few laps, with Sebel breaking clear and riding solo for the majority of the race. Riders crossed the line, with large gaps between as the final few laps broke up the group even more. Scott Goguen, Will Routely (Symmetrics), Corey Lange (Marco Polo) and Ken Johnson (Schwalbe) rounded out the top 5.

In the B Group, it was Dan Schmit (Bayside), Glen Barr, Jackson Beuhler (dEVo/Powerbar), and Mike Burns (dEVo/Powerbar) riding clear of the pack for the majority of the race. With two laps to go, Barr dropped from the main group, leaving Schmit with Burns and Beuhler to contend with. Beuhler scampered up the final climb to take the victory from Schmit, with Burns rolling across in third.

And in the C Group, it was Naomi Cooper dominating the field with a great performance. Her climbing prowess was on display all day, as she took the race handily over her competitors.

Race #5: Bradner Road Race - Mar 14, 2004

The sunshine went away quickly on Sunday with a brisk and gusty day in Bradner. The course, used as the Escape Velocity Masters Race course, is known to be rolling, windy, and generally hard. Few spots on the course offer any rest for the riders and with the strong winds, Sunday was no exception.

In the A Group, the race was typified by small breakaways and hard attacking. The pack slowly but surely thinned out over the total of 14 punishing laps, with a small group of 25 riders left during the final two laps. Symmetrics again played prominently in the day's events, having made the decisive move with a few laps left. Scott Goguen, Marsh Cooper, and Will Routely (Symmetrics) along with Keith Stark (Cove Bikes) were up the road, as behind Ken Johnson (Schwalbe) and Scott Slater (Rocky Mountain) chased, bringing Dylan Sebel (Symmetrics) along with them. Stark dropped off, Sebel bridged up, and the four Symmetrics riders crossed the line together.

In the B Group, a final lap break was chased down by the charging pack, lining it up for an exciting 5 rider sprint at the line. In the end, it was Paul Craig (Natural Earth Racing) using his mountain-biker-come-track-cyclist skills (honed at the Burnaby Velodrome all winter long) to defeat the affable Irishman and climber Phillip Burgess (La Bicicletta) and Jim Kwasnicki (Team Coastal) at the line. Marni Prazsky took 5th, capping off an impressive weekend of racing.

Race #4: River Road Circuit - Mar 13, 2004

Another sunny day met the over 100 cyclists of the dEVO/Escape Velocity Spring Series. A slight crosswind grazed over the primarily flat course, but average speeds were still fairly high as the racing was yet again, hard. In the A Group, an initial break rolled off the front at the start line, quickly gaining a 30 second advantage within the first lap. This group of 8 riders (including a tandem) gained up to 5 minutes on the pack, 1/3 of the way through the race. This advantage represented roughly 1/2 of the total distance around the 10-minute-per-lap course. It was at the same time the B Group caught the A Group that the pace picked up. Symmetrics pulled all riders to the front and upped the pace to between 48kmh and 52kmh for over the next hour, until with 5 laps to go, the initial break was caught. Attacks went left right and centre following the catch, with other teams trying to grind down a tired Symmetrics squad from their epic chase. In the end, it was Dylan Sebel (Symmetrics) and Matt Barth (Bayside) managing to get away making it a carbon copy 1-2 of the last River Road race, with Cam Evans in his Symmetrics race debut hanging on between the breakaway and the main pack to take thrid. Scott Goguen (Symmetrics) edged out US rider Beau Whitehead (First Mortage) for 4th place.

In the B Group Race, Marni Prazsky (Symmetrics) unleashed the sprint that's made her one of the top women in the North West, coming around dEVo manager and Spring Series sandbagger organizer Jeremy Storie for the win.

Race #3: Armstrong Hill Road Race - Mar 7, 2004

In the A Group a little over 40 riders started with Scott Goguen and Andrew Pinfold both of Symmetrics riding to an anticlimactic finish as they crossed nearly 4 minutes clear of the field. Goguen attacked near the top of the climb on about the 5th of twelve laps and was joined almost immediately by Pinfold and the duo steadily increased their lead. Will Routley of Symmetrics jumped clear of the main group with one lap to go finishing about 30 seconds ahead of the bunch, which was won by Sean Dawson ( Trek/VW ) over Marsh Cooper of Symmetrics.

In the B group there were a few attacks made up the main climb throughout the 9 laps race but it was not until Dan Schmit ( Bayside ) made a decisive move with a little over 3 laps to go did the real race start to happen. Schmit's lead was healthy at about a minute but the group got time back each lap but came up about 15 seconds short as Schmit soloed for the win. The hard charging group was lead in by Reid Duthie.

The C group was a little sparse on competitors but those that did race put on a good show. The 6 lap race was slowly whittled down to a select group of 4. At the start of the final lap Marc Bohm ( Coastal ) attacked opening up a small gap. 16 year old Naomi Cooper ( dEVO/Powerbar ) was left to chase as the remaining members of the break were also Coastal riders. In the end Cooper dropped her breakaway companions and outsprinted Bohm at the line.

Race #1: River Road Circuit Race - Feb 29, 2004

The sun was shining on a record 162 participants at the dEVo/Ecsape Velocity Spring Series in Langley for the first race of the BC season. With temperature reaching 14 degrees, three large packs headed out on the River Road circuit course. In the A Group a 9 man breakaway went early in the race, containing eventual winner Dylan Sebel (Symmetrics) along with 2 of his teammates. Bayside Cycling also had representation in the break with not one but two Barth's (Matt and Chris). Matt Barth and Dylan Sebel would ride away from the break, which was swallowed by a Rocky Mountain-lead pack with 3 laps to go. Scott Goguen (Symmetrics) took the bunch sprint endging out Larry Zimich (Coastal) and Min Van Velzen.
