October 1/13 15:56 pm - Ontario Track Championships: report and results
Posted by Editoress on 10/1/13
It was another great weekend of competition at the Forest City Velodrome on September 27-28, as 54 Ontario racers took to the boards of the 138m indoor velodrome in London, Ontario.
Ten teams from across Ontario were represented in the racing action. Five separate events made up the 2013 Track Championships. There were two events on Friday night (500m/Kilo and Points race). Saturday the Individual Pursuit and Sprint Qualification were held in the morning session, with Pursuit Gold medal round, Sprint rounds and Finals and, last but certainly not least, the Scratch race ending the competition.
The temperature was perfect for the boards and there were a total of 11 FCV track records broken throughout the weekend.
There were many outstanding performances over the weekend, however, the rider who was on top of his game for the entire competition was Cadet Connor Biway from the Ottawa Bicycle Club. Biway won every event and every sprint heat except one, when Bayley Simpson took him to a decider in the Cadet Men's Sprint final.
The FCV would like to thank the OCA Officials for their efforts over the weekend, all the FCV parents who chipped in last week to prepare the track for a great championships, and all the teams and racers who made the mass start races some of the most entertaining races we have had at the track in many months.
The three top teams for the Championships were: Ottawa Bicycle Club, Team CHCH & Invita-FCV
