Hamilton Midweek Finale

The Tuesday Crit Awards Ceremony and Pizza Party was held on Tuesday, August 27th at the usual venue for the ride.

We had a points race which was won by Paul Rego with Piers Davidge coming second and Kevin Lehman and Paul Hornak in a tie for third place. The registration fees for the points race were divided among these top four finishers.

After the points race we had pizza and pop and presented the top three awards for the series: Piers Davidge, 1st; Paul Hornak, 2nd; Jeff Sharafbayani, 3rd. Jay MacLaren, 4th and Mirek Mazur, 5th were not present for the presentation. After the awards were presented it was time for the draw prizes. We had lots of prizes thanks in part to the generosity of Matt Burger of "Spokes 'n' Slopes" in Milton - thank you Matt!

Thanks to all who made this year's series such a success by participating or helping or by being a spectator. I'm sure everyone had fun!

Alberta Provincial Mountain Bike Championships

The Alberta Provincial Mountain Bike Championships were held Sunday August 24th under sunny skies and hot temperatures at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary. It was a tough long day in the saddle for all categories with several DNF’s. Race times were longer than expected. Both Elite men and women finishing times were over 2 hours and 30mins.

The Alberta Cup Mountain Bike Series has wrapped; however, there is still a lot of racing left in the season with mountain, road or cyclo-cross races every weekend until the end of October.

Martin Gilbert remporte le Défi Volkswagen
Katia Blanchard, l'Équipe Volkswagen - Trek

(Granby, 29 août 2002) - Le Défi Volkswagen se tenait ce soir à Granby dans le cadre du Mondial du vélo. Le critérium de 36 km, à raison de 1.2. km le tour, a été remporté par Martin Gilbert de Volkwagen-Trek. Ses deux coéquipiers l'ont suivi sur le podium puisque Alexandre Cloutier vient deuxième et Alexandre Lavallée, troisième.

Le parcours étant relativement court, le rythme a été rapide dès le début et les attaques ont fusé de partout. Une échappée, composée de Jean-François Laroche (Sympatico), Alexandre Cloutier et Alexandre Lavallée, s'est enfin détachée du peloton au 10e tour. Martin Gilbert les a rejoints peu après. Bien qu'ils avaient pratiquement fait toute la course à quatre, les trois coureurs de VW-Trek ont finalement complété le parcours à eux seuls, ayant distancé Laroche en chemin. « À la fin, on a sprinté pour le fun. C'était une belle course malgré que je n'ai pas pu me préparer comme il le faut à cause de mon retard. Je suis arrivé à peine 20 minutes avant le début parce que j'étais pris dans les embouteillages. Mais on va dire que c'est pas très grave parce que ça s'est plutôt bien terminé quand même », a raconté Martin Gilbert.

La formation Volkswagen-Trek prendra part à la course par étapes Green Mountain à Burlington, Vermont, du vendredi 30 août au lundi 2 septembre prochains. « J'ai plus ou moins eu un résultat satisfaisant l'an passé et j'aimerais mieux faire cette année, c'est sûr, sauf que je vise davantage certaines étapes que le classement général », a poursuivi Gilbert.

Horaire chargé pour François Parisien
Pendant que ses coéquipiers se dirigent vers les Etats-Unis, François Parisien court toujours en Europe. Il a participé lundi dernier à un critérium de 120 km où il a terminé 13e à l'intérieur du sprint de 20 coureurs. Mardi, il a pris le 20e rang sur 40. 130 coureurs avaient pris le départ mais les conditions difficiles ont eu raisons d'un grand nombre d'entre eux.

Parisien a bénéficié de deux jours de repos avant de devoir reprendre la compétition demain. S'enchaîneront par la suite des courses samedi, dimanche et mardi prochain.

Issues du génie allemand, les voitures de marque Volkswagen savent marier l'art, le design avant-gardiste et la haute technologie pour offrir aux automobilistes des produits qui allient performance, maniabilité et plaisir de conduire.
