Mansfield O-Cup
(courtesy WOW)

My, that was a weekend of extremes! We absolutely roasted on Saturday at the Mansfield Ski Club. Hot, windy but it was the intense sun that was really taxing. Tip of the hat to all of the racers for putting up with those conditions while wearing body armour! We are pleased with the comments that we received from the racers. Perhaps a shorter run than in the past, but way more difficult. Run times were much longer despite the shorter course. This produced some excellent racing.

If we had too much sun on Saturday then we didn't have nearly enough on Sunday. Rain, Rain and RAIN!!! There were rivers of water coming down the trails. But, true to form, the sandy base of the Mansfield Outdoor Centre held up very well. We were hoping that the new Exit Wound Trail would prove to be a challenge for everyone, but conditions dictated that we use it for only the Expert/Elite race. Big crowds cheered the racers slipping, sliding, falling and unbelievably riding this trail just near the finish. The silly grins on the racer's faces will be one of our lasting memories. As to be expected there was a substantial attrition rate, but hey, if you had the guts to even line up you deserve a pat on the back.

Many thanks to all of our sponsors. One comment - aren't pop-up tents wonderful?! No, really, many thanks for your generous support. We had many comments about the quality of the prizes and the entire credit must go to the sponsor's generosity.

Thanks to: Sport Swap, Devinci Bicycles, Bruzer, Cameron's Brewing, Eload, Gravis/Burton, Schwinn, KHS Bicycles, OGC, Norco/GT, Rocky Mountain!!!

Ottawa Race Week
(courtesy Ross D. Knight)

For the first event of race week in Ottawa, Seenite Sports changed its weekly 1 km, flat rectangular course to a 2 km rectangular course with a S turn followed by a short hill. Approximately 52 athletes started the A-race with another 25 in the B-race starting 15 seconds after the A field departed. Both races where uneventful (i.e. all rubber stayed in contact with the ground). From the start the turn and hill strung the field out however the long (1km) straight allowed the packs to reform. Several cash and prize primes where given throught the A-event. There where numerous attacks throughout the race but at the end it all came down to a long sprint.

1st = John Large
2nd = Marc Chiarelli
3rd = John Bence
4th = Julian Hine
5th = Craig Burge

The culmination of the week is the Carleton Place Criterium on Saturday followed by the classic Preston Street Criterium on Sunday. For more Info contact Doug Corner at
