Toulouse and Sinclair take Canada Cup #3
Trish Sinclair (Marin) and Mathieu Toulouse (Ford-Devinci) were the dominant riders in today's Pro Elite cross country races. Our report comes from women's racer Christine Cogger (Xenacom). Christine reports that the ground is considerably drier than yesterday, so the going was much faster. Both the cross country and downhill riders are much happier with the conditions now. Both the men's and women's races were shortened by a lap due to the extreme heat (to 4 and 3 laps respectively).
