Crank the Shield starts with great weather and great course

Day One of "Crank the Shield", Ontario's first three-day stage mountain bike race, hosted by Chico Racing, kicked off today with a huge success. Riders were met with outstanding weather, a challenging 75km course that took racers from Buckwallow Cycling Centre near Gravenhurst to Camp Kandalore, near Minden.

Riders reported the course as wet and boggy in some parts, due primarily to the unseasonably wet summer we had; however, these sections were balanced by excellent logging road and dry singletrack sections.

Derek Zandstra of 3Rox Racing led the overall race, as well as the Solo Under 40 Male category with a time of 3:13:12, reported that the course was "fun, mud and an epic day on the bike ˆ it was the perfect mix!"

Zandstra's time was closely followed by Matthew Hadley of Xprezo/Solid Edge with 3:13:13. Peter Glassford of Trek Bicycle Store Toronto, Adam Morka of 3Rox Racing and Robert Parniak of Tall Tree Cycles finished out the top five.

Solo Women under 40 was led by Kate Ardal from Hardcore Bike in Alberta with a time of 3:53:36. Tricia Spooner of EMD Serono/Stevens: The Cyclery and Tracey Schinkel of The Hub Bicycle Club finished with times of 4:11:40 and 4:20:10 respectively.

Many riders loved the inaugural day of the event. Andrew Watson of the Barrie Cycling Club said that "This is what Ontario needed to move forward with racing!" Many other riders had a great day, and enjoyed the demanding conditions. However, even riders leading the pack had their challenges with the terrain: Matt Hadley reportedly asked Derek Zandstra how deep a certain section of a mud bog was ˆ when he stepped in, he fell to his waist. "Roughly, that deep", Derek mused.

We are looking forward to even more challenging terrain Saturday: 85km of total course, with 50 km of adventure-style, multi-line riding over slick rock with truly defines the Canadian Shield.
