BC Provincial Road Championship Race
Thank you to everyone who has contacted us in the past few months for your kind words which you have expressed to the VIPYRS for hosting last season's BC Provincial Youth Road Championship Race. Many of you have inquired about the Provincial Youth Championship Race this year. Please be advised that the VIPYRS are not involved with the 2014 BC Provincial Youth Road Championships and have no information with respect to this race. Thanks again for your support and good luck this race season!
We are pleased to announce our partnership with Champion System. Our riders will be proudly wearing this great kit. Our thanks go out to Champion System, and Simon Whitfield and Melanie McQuaid, Champion System athletes, for supporting youth cycling in Canada.
The Vancouver Island Performance Youth Racing Squad goes for higher power with MARIN BIKES.
When the VIPYRS team hits the road in 2014, they will be powered by Marin Bikes of California.
"Our team is very excited to be partnering with Marin and its cutting edge bike technology."
-Steve Grant, co-founder, VIPYRS,
