Tim Lefebvre (St. Catharines CC) still has some Superweek magic in his legs as he landed himself on the podium in third place last Sunday in the final stage. A 100km criterium in the town of Whitefish Bay saw all the major U.S Pro squads line up with a few Europeans in a fast flat 4 corner affair.
Powering off the front was overall winner Victor Replinski the 99 junior world champion (Saturn) with his two teammates Dane Soren Peterson and Cuban Ivan Domniguez with Lefebvre in tow. Eventually lapping the 100 man field the Saturn train gained momentum and swallowed up a second group which included Jonas Carney (Prime Alliance), Hilton Clarke (Iron Schroeder) and Andy Cappele of Belgium.
In the final sprint Lefebvre faired well coming close to winner Peterson and overall winner Replinski and beating Domniguez.
