Bit behind on the blog posting this week – sorry about this! While Wednesday is typically reserved for training blog posts, we missed posting on Monday about the racing that happened on the weekend – so today we’ll post an overview of the results from the weekend.
Leadville Trail 100: 100 miles of mountain bike racing in Leadville, Colorado – it was an epic day on Saturday for the racers who came from far and wide to toe the line. The race was won by Specialized’s Todd Wells – read his race report here. The famous Fat Cyclist (Eldon) raced on Saturday as well and has posted a detailed and entertaining race report (it is a long one – broken into three parts: 1, 2, 3)
Classique Montreal-Quebec Louis Garneau: this 243 kilometre point-to-point race was won by Brett Tivers of the Garneau-Club Chaussures-Norton Rose. Stevens Bikes Canada was well-represented in the race with Marc Boudreau making the early move that lasted for over 100 kilometres. Stephen Keeping of the Stevens Bikes Canada team finished in 14th place. The Stevens Bikes Canada team thanks its support-staff for the driving, feeding and general race-day support.
2011 Canadian Track Cycling Championships: National champions were crowned in the elite, masters, para and junior categories over five days of track racing. See pedalmag.com for the full coverage and photos.
