Tour de l'Abitibi - Quebec

Jacques Landry, National Development Coach, just called to give us a quick update after the Team Time Trial first stage (40.4 kilometres) from La Corne to Val d'Or. The terrain is rolling, with a 3/4 tailwind all the way, so it was fast. Aero bars were not allowed. Tonight there is a criterium.

17 Starters - 16 Finishers

Wet conditions earlier in the day made for a diminished field for the tenth Midweek Novice Race of the season but those that showed up were treated to cool clear and windless conditions. Madonna Wheelers rider Shane Ferreira attacked the field numerous times but did not suceed in his escape. With one lap to go Steve Head and D'Ornellas' Master Malcolm Eade had ten seconds on the field and it looked like the field would be left to pick up the scraps. With less than 500m remaining in the race Malcolm suffered a rare double blowout. Some expert bike handling skills kept Malcolm upright but his race was over. Thus for the second week in a row Eade lost out on victory after riding strongly during the race. With the pack all together Mississauga's Dave Oryzlo took the field sprint ahead of Madonna's Shane Ferreira.

Thanks to rider coach Fernando Bagnasco and to Peter McCaffery for help with putting on the race and to the riders and volunteers for helping set up and take down the course and acting as lap counters course sweepers and bell-ringers.

Thanks to Sponsors La Bicicletta and Schwinn Canada for prizes and continued support.

**Note: The will be NO NOVICE RACE August 6th and Aug 13th.
