Welcome to our new members for 2015 and a big welcome back to everyone from last season!!
I will try to keep this note relatively short, but there will be several important things to take note of in this email. There will be several more emails with information about the season coming in the next week or so.
First will be communications and sign up. Thank you very much to those who have already signed up and taken advantage of our online registration process. To say that the Bronze Race group is growing this season would be an understatement, WOW!! I have included a few names from last season that we haven’t heard from yet in hopes that you haven’t got around to signing up yet. FOR EVERYONE…….Please check the email address we have for you. If you would like another one added or will not be joining us this year, please email Lisa Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will make sure we get our list updated. If you notice, we have the contact info under the athletes names so the coaches can keep track of our group better.
Second item will be coaches. I am still finalizing the coaches for this group for this season. I will be back again this season. I am really excited to let you know that we will be adding coach Jon Barnes to our group this season!! Jon is a member of the Trek Canada mountain bike team, a former member of Team Hardwood-Trek (the old days)!! He also has two athletes in the program as well. I will be announcing the rest of the coaching group shortly. I would like everyone to give Jon a huge THT welcome when we see him as we are extremely lucky to have him!!!!
Last item for this note. Our first training session will be this coming Saturday, April 18th. I will send out a note tomorrow with the location as I am finalizing that. The good news is we will be on trails for our first session this year and we may mix in a little gravel road work as well!! The time will be from 10 am until approximately noon. I will send out a more detailed explanation of our first session when I send out a note on the location.
That is it for now. Remember, please email Lisa Lee if you need any changes to the contact info. I would also ask you to please hold off on any questions for now unless you think it is really crucial, as many of those questions will likely be answered in the emails I will be sending out in the next week.
I can’t tell you how excited Jon and I and the rest of the THT (Team Hardwood-Trek) family are to get things rolling again for 2015. We are looking to make this the best year ever, and always welcome your feedback in an effort to do so.
Rob Fex – Head Coach
