Bad weather forecasts weren't enough to keep 680 riders away from the first Plastiglas Ontario Cup of the year at Mansfield. While torrential rain, and even snow, hit many parts of Ontario, Mansfield Outdoor Centre was spared as we were treated to cool spring day with a couple of sprinkles that didn't even wet the course.

The course snaked up and down the Mansfield escarpment in what can only be described as a course created with these spring conditions in mind.

The men's elite field is experiencing a changing of the guard in 2005. Bay Cycle's Derek Zanstra took his first Ontario Cup win with a first year senior Adam Morka, Team Hardwood, hot on his tail the whole race. Mike Garrigan, Team Hardwood, finished a strong third and we're expecting more podiums for him in his first full season back from injury. In the women's race it was a Gears Racing sweep with the young, and amazingly talented, Emily Batty cruising to victory followed by Catherine Vipond, who narrowly beat the cagey veteran of the elite women's circuit Sue Trimble.

We'd like to thank all of our important sponsors including our title sponsor Plastiglas, Peak XL, Ontario Cycling Association, Sugoi Clothing, Norco Performance Bikes, Fuji Bicycles, Dainese, Ryder's Eyewear, Yakima Racks, Uvex Helmets, Gears Bicycle Shop ˆ prize sponsor, Pedal Performance Bike Shop, Bay Cycle, Ecclestone Cycle, Cycle Solutions, Yakima, Outpost Magazine, and Yamaha for the use of the ATV. Chico Racing would also like to thank Allan Hawley's timing crew, the Canadian Ski Patrol and Ted Mcleod, and Mansfield Outdoor Centre for their support.
