After a successful inaugural year, the Vancouver Island Performance Youth Racing Squad (VIPYRS) is pleased to announce its affiliation with Pacific Cycling Centre (PCC) in Victoria, BC.  The partnership will expose VIPYRS to a new level of competition with access to PCC’s Houshang Amiri – noted National, Olympic, and UCI Coach. 

To kick off the 2014 cycling season, VIPYRS and PCC will be hosting a Vancouver Island Talent ID Camp under the direction of Coach Amiri.  This camp is for riders aged 14 – 18 (permission required for riders under 14) and will take place in Courtenay on December 8th.  The camp will include in-class training presentations, and on-road skill training and observation led by PCC coaches and National champions. Athletes with potential will be considered for the VIPYRS program.  The cost for the camp is $50 per athlete. Registration deadline is November 30th.

“PCC is very ecstatic to work and partner with an organization like VIPYRS, which is thoroughly committed to the development of sport and young athletes in our community,” said Amiri.

VIPYRS is an island-wide youth development/high performance cycling team. The team looks forward to building on its previous successes which include multiple U17 and U15 Provincial road and track championships.

For further information or to register for the Talent ID Camp, contact VIPYRS through their website – www.vipyrsracing.com.
