Mississauga Midweek Club Wednesday Night Criterium
Event #7, June 2nd/99 - 13 laps
Weather: WET (rain w/ strong westerly breeze)
A surprising number of stalwarts braved the rain to contest tonight's criterium. And a few who turned Up, took a look at the revised course and went home. The organizer had decided that afternoon to change the circuit to a 3.6 kilometer up and back one on Explorer Boulevard with two dead turns.
After a neutralized lap to test the turns as a bunch, the pace "limousine" drew away and the speed picked up. The pack stayed together for a number of laps with the leaders gradually attacking the turns more and more aggressively.With 3 laps to go, Jeff Hansen-Ital Pasta- opened a 15 second gap but he was pulled back just after the final bell.
At the line, Dave Britnell,-Hummingbirds- won comfortably with Hansen hanging on to second and Kiro's James Wadden taking third. The remainder of the top 16 all finished in the same time.
Thanks to all the riders, to Tina Mayberry and Sean Kelly for marshalling and lap scoring and to Geoff Gadd of the Randonneurs for cone collection.
The Schwinn night has been resceduled for June 16th.
For all you time trial fans, Geoff Gadd is starting his popular Wednesday evening races in a couple of weeks. Watch Canadian Cyclist News for details
