Walker Takes Dirt Crit
Adam Walker (Gary Fisher/Rip n Hammer) from Victoria won the menÃ¢â‚¬Å¡s Pro-Elite Dirt Crit at the Whistler Classic a few minutes ago, reports a very happy Lorraine Hebert (Adam is her Ã…â€™significant otherÃ¢â‚¬Å¡...). Adam broke away a couple of times in the 30 minute plus 3 lap race, but was chased down each time until he finally stayed clear for the final 3 laps. In second place it was Lucas Curran (Giant/RST/ValueNet), and third went to Scott Ross (Tantalus/Kona). The crowd was dynamite, with all the bar restaurant patios full of spectators - as Lorraine said: Ã¢â‚¬Å¾everyoneÃ¢â‚¬Å¡s got a smile on their faceÃ¢â‚¬Â°.
Action gets underway again tomorrow with the cross-country, and Lorriane will be reporting in during the racing.
Note: Melanie McQuaid of Rocky Mountain called in after her race to say that tomorrowÃ¢â‚¬Å¡s course was Ã¢â‚¬Å¾way better than the Canada Cup course. There is 20-25 minutes of climbing (per lap).Ã¢â‚¬Â° She also confirmed that she is finally starting to feel better after a slow start to the season. Ã¢â‚¬Å¾I finally feel that I am starting to get some form.Ã¢â‚¬Â°
