Mike Hientzman won Cyclo cross race #4, Sunday, on the Beatton River circuit, completing 10 laps in 45 minutes. Pat Ferris was second and Roger St. Jean third, also with 10 laps.

Eleven riders started with a skiff of snow and -3 degree temperatures. Gary Hilderman took the 'hole-shot' for the early lead to the first run up. Mike Hientzman and Pat Ferris took over at the run up and pulled away. They stayed together for three laps after which Mike pulled away for yet another win.

Roger St. Jean hung on for third at 10 laps. Gary Hilderman was 4th, Rod Lewis 5th, Gord " the Hammer' Harris 6th, Ed Fornelli 7th after a crash and Dean Lowry 8th also after a crash, all with 9 laps.

Barb Polehoykie was 9th, Adam Currie 10th, both with 8 laps and Richard Merwin 11th at 7 laps in 45 minutes.

Next Sunday is the 7th running of the Club Cyclo-Cross Championship for the 'Muddy Face ' trophy. Dennis Morrison was the first winner of this event, back in 1998. Robert Martens is the leader after winning this one-day event three times.

Mike Hientzman has won all the races in the series so far and is the rider to beat for 2004 champion.

This is the final official event for the club in 2004. We will now wait for spring.
