The Provincial cyclocross championships were held yesterday and the course was the best it’s ever been at “historic Whittier Park” (Steve Scoles). Here’s how the locals fared: Albert Falk won the gold medal (for his age group) – we heart you Albert, Sweet Cheryl Koop raced to a bronze, Genevieve won the Open race, Gavin put on an impressive show and finished just off the podium in the one-hour race, Lisa showed that training and a good diet actually make a difference (stupid training and diet - you suck), Dan looked strong in the Open race and may have caught the Cross-bug, David took a leisurely approach and was Athena-slapped by Cindy, Joanne and Sandra, Steven had a good race with David Unger but ran out of gas, DB continues to get stronger after he figured out how to not pass-out at races, Mia and Kate finished strong and were mostly smiling, and Thomas has been getting better every race and finished first in the kids race – woo-hoo! I on the other hand could nary finish a lap. Of my three races at Whitter, I have crashed once and broken my derraileur twices. Sheesh! I need to fire my mechanic.
Cheryl took these pics before our camera died. The rest can be found at the usual sites.
