Race Series Results & Upcoming Race Series Events

Last week we had an amazing turnout for our first Race Series Event – the Iona Beach Time Trial. Over 15 people came out and burned it up over the flat 10 K.M. course, despite the super wet conditions. The day started pretty ominously – with dark clouds brewing in the sky. Club President – Seth – was not deterred, and decided the best way to tackle the incoming rain was to eat a pastrami sandwich (Carb gains?) prior to heading off on the bike.

Once at the beach, the race began! Jen (who graciously volunteered to time the event) decided she would get a head start on everybody and complete her race early – secretly we now believe that she was attempting to take advantage of the early morning tail-wind!

The boys set off first, with Jamie and Sean taking the first few positions. Jamie’s legs (super charged from years of rowing) carried him across the 10 K.M. course with apparent ease as he set the day’s fastest time. Next to roll in for the men were Sean and Nima, separated by only 2 seconds! (Drafting suspicions?) Seth was quoted after the race as saying – “I wish I didn’t eat that sandwich”, but still put in a strong performance. Other strong rides that day came from Derek, Guillam and Vincent. The Women’s race was no less competitive with the likes of Mads, Jenn, Vanessa, Kaitlin, Becca and Katrina taking to the start line. But at the end of the race it was Mads who would emerge the victor on the women’s side, with Jenn and Vanessa taking second and third, respectively.
