2005 Niagara Hamilton Classic
The St. Catharines Cycling Club is proud to host the 2005 Niagara-Hamilton Classic Stage Race - Sponsored by Cramaro Tarpaulin System and Nella Cutlery and Food Equipment. This year's Niagara-Hamilton Classic features the classic road race in Pelham on Sunday (May 22nd) followed by a downtown Hamilton criterium on the holiday Monday (May 23rd).
The road race will take place in the picturesque and historic Town of Pelham. The course will be on roads familiar to Ontario road racers, however the course is completely new. A challenging, winding and rolling 12.3 km course through the vineyards and orchards of Ontario's Fruitland has been created with a Start/Finish atop Saylor's Hill.
The criterium will consist of the return of bicycle racing to the downtown streets of the City of Hamilton on a course similar to that used for the criterium at the 2003 National Championships. Riders will enjoy the downtown racing atmosphere and the long races. If numbers warrant, the Women's field will have their own race.
Designated as a stage race, riders can only sign up for both stages. Online registration is available at canadiancyclist.com until midnight, May 17th. THERE WILL BE NO DAY OF REGISTRATION.
The Road Race stage of the Niagara-Hamilton Classic will also be used as criteria for the Canadian Games Selection. More information will be posted shortly.
