Hooboy, lots of stuff this week, as the road season is in full swing now! Our skill session on Wednesday was a massive success, with over 20 people showing up, with the experienced riders helping the newer ones, it was a great start to the season! Hills night was also a hit, with about a dozen souls tackling the hills in Edmonton. Onward to the weekend, where the last info sessions were a hit, with Michael van Den Ham made a surprise appearance to give a talk about racing.
The spring series races on the Sunday were a true show of strength from ERTC, with over 20 members showing Alberta Racing what we are made of, with an full ERTC sweep of the women's podium with Sarah, Kelly, and Danielle in the first, second, and third spots, respectively. Great job to the ladies and everyone else who rode for us this race!
