Giant Bicycle Canada Update
We are pleased to announce that Giant Canada's Luke Kitzanuk has won the Canadian National series overall title. Luke's second place finish at the last National series event earned him enough points to keep his series lead and claim Canada's number one ranking for 2005!
Finishing very close to his teammate, Giant Canada's Eric Goss rode his way into third place overall in Canada. With solid results all year long, Eric moved his way up through the rankings with each consecutive race to give Giant Canada a strong one-two punch in the Pro Men's field.
Not to be outdone, Giant Canada's Danika Schroeter has also won the Canadian National series overall title in the Pro Women's class! With Danika's nail-biting win at the last National series event she earned just enough points to steal the win away from her second place rival.
We finally did it! On top of the many victories and titles Giant Canada's race team has laid claim to over the years, our last milestone in our successful racing career has been to hold the title of both Pro Men's and Pro Women's first place overall rankings in the same year!
Ontario Provincial DH Championships - Calabogie, Ontario
The famous fast and furious Red course was pegged for the Provincials and it turned out to be in perfect condition, a little dust suppressing rain fell the day before the race and everybody was stoked to give it their all.
In the women's field it was none other than Sheila Morris, the former Team Canada member, blazing the field by over a minute.
1 Sheila Morris, Barrie, 2:51.286
2 Christina Hirota, Hamilton, 4:05.697
3 Candace Ellicott, Ottawa, DNF
Two super fast rippers battled it out, Derek Cowell (who will be representing Canada at the Worlds this year) just barely took out Team Dropmachine.com rider Chris Dufault. Brian Serneels of Bits and Bikes pulled off 3rd
1 Derek Cowell, Cyclepath Brampton, 2:21.242
2 Chris Dufault, Team Dropmachine.com Barrie, 2:21.570 3
3 Brian Serneels, Bits & Bikes Kilbride, 2:26.415
A battle was waged between National Team and Norco Team member Justin Brown (also going to the Worlds in Italy) and Canada Cup and Sweet Pete's Primary ripper Peter McLean. When the Tag Heuer System read its final beeps, Justin was the winner, Peter in second and fellow Sweet Pete's/Primary team mate Ondrej Neumann in 3rd.
1 Justin Brown, Norco Factory Team Brampton, 2:13.525
2 Peter McLean, Sweet Pete's Weston, 2:14.942
3 Ondrej Neumann, Sweet Pete's Mississauga, 2:19.608
For the Ontario Cup DH finals, we moved over to the steep and nasty Orange course, littered with drops and steep rocky chutes, which took its toll on many, with flats, twisted bikes, taco'd rims and derailleurs everywhere.
1 Derek Cowell, Cyclepath Brampton, 1:50.644
2 Chris Dufault, Team Dropmachine.com Barrie, 2:01.300
3 Jeffery Eades, GearsRacing.com Alton, 2:04.130
