Canada and the United States split the eight Masters category titles contested on Saturday, the opening day of the 2019 Pan Am Cyclo-cross Championships, with each nation winning four continental titles. Held in Midland, Ontario, for the second consecutive year, riders faced light snow on the course and chilling winds off the lake next to the course, that put temperatures below freezing with wind chill taken into account.
Canadian winners were Patricia Konantz (Ride with Rendal p/b Biemme) in Women's 65+, Sarah Gilchrist (Edmonton Road & Track in Women's 35-44, James Laird in Men's 65+, and Jean-Francois Blais (Trek Cyclocross Collective) in Men's 45-54.
The Pan Am Championships continue on Sunday with the women's and men's Junior, Under-23 and Elite categories. Temperatures are forecast to rise into the mid-single digits, however, rain is also expected.
