Results from Ronde Van Wind-Del

Sorry to be a bit late in the evening with these results - it was a long day. VERY, VERY successful 2-Day. See us back next year. This race had all the format but none of the formality and was christened the 'Friendly Race'.

There was only one rule - Big Val decides! Seriously, you missed a good one. I hope we get good feedback. We have had a great weekend.

This 3 stage 2-Day Race became the road season opener in Ontario. It was an unqualified, enormous success. Based on a simple points system, the results were easy to calculate and post quickly although they did not go more than 10 deep.

The courses were challenging, as expected, with the varying wind directions and competition quite hot. The winners were worthy.

This race has been in our (Keith and Val's) minds for several years - a good 2 day stage race early season in tobacco lands. We finally did it. We set things up but the hard work was done by a select group of friends whose team work and panache made the whole race. A big THANK YOU to Wind-Del Community Park for opening their Hall, Toilets, Showers and Food Concessions to the race, the OPP, the Silver Spokes Cycling Club (Delhi) for Marshalling, Wayne and Sandy Langton, Terry and Joe Halliday, Mark Forshaw, Joe De Maeyer, Eleanor and Adrian Mezenber, Kit McCaffery and the three guys I 'roped into' marshalling the last corner for volunteering this entire weekend to officiate, register, drive, service, marshal, etc. etc. As a Citizen's sanction race we can say a great success but not without a lot of giving from a number of caring people.

Thank you, everyone from me and all the riders.
