That was a LOT of a racing! It was great to see so many Albertan cyclists embrace a real superweek or parts of it. For STC's part, we had a very successful 3 races to round up the last three events of the 8 race extravaganza. Bob from Bowcycle and Joel of Niklas Group did an amazing job of the first 4 races. The addition of the Glenmore Park Circuit Race was quite an undertaking and not an easy feat to pull off, so ensure to thank those guys for going out of their way building on an already great event.
The Crankmasters are the 'masters' of the Time Trial and they didn't disappoint with an excellent, fast, windy, venue on perfect pavement and very little traffic. Some of the times were incredible, David Stephens rode a 25:05 for 20km, with a couple other awesome dudes right behind him.

The Road Race was the finale of the Superweek and offered a challenging varied course. The beautiful landscape gave the racers something to appreciate while telling their legs and lungs to shut up. Watching from the finish line, the uphill finish capped a great event and a true 'Super Week'.

We have an amazing team here at STC and Alberta Cycling is gathering momentum thanks in no small part to people like Joel of Niklas Group and Dennis of dB Performance who are offering their own company's money to further race cycling in our province. More people than most can imagine have donated a lot of their own time to help make an amazing week like this such a super unique opportunity for bike racers. If you know someone who volunteered throughout the course of this week, take them out for a beer and ensure they know you appreciate their efforts.
Thank you to the racers for coming out and making the event an exciting memory and one worth talking about.
