The 2006 Club Champions are....

2006-08-20 |

Congratulations to the 2006 Club Champions:
Hank Verhoeven, Category 'A' Champion
Peter Hein, Category 'B' Champion
Dennis DesVignes, Category 'C' Champion

2006 Club Champion Hank

There seemed to be a number of strong riders in each of the categories this 
year. It was going to be some tough racing. Hank made a breakaway in the last 8km of the Road Race and managed to make it stick for the win. The Hill Climb was shortened by 100m due to the closing of the bridge, so the challenge this was how to start the climb while already on the hill! Hank and Tom D were the only ones able to make it up in under a minute. Speaking of Tom... Did any one else notice he wouldn't stop smiling again? This happens every year!

In the Sprint, while everyone was watching Dan, Tom D made his move and launched way off the front... the rest of the lap was spent chasing in vain... This year we brought the Time Trial back, and it was a great course for it too! Dan may 
have had the best time out of the A's, but down in the B's, Peter was riding "Lance's Bike" and it sure helped! He beat Dan's time by over half a second! Finally we made it to the main event, the Criterium. Right off the start Tom F decides to break away. Knowing it's a 20k race and such a windy day, nobody in the pack figured he would be able to stay away... Wrong! Tom F kept a solid 30 second gap on all the chasers, right to the end!

After the races the club made it's way down the road to Wendy's for some burgers and refreshments. Great job everyone, thanks for coming out!

Here's the results with points earned from all the events:

The 2005 Club Champions are....

2005-08-28 |

Congratulations to the 2005 Club Champions
Hank Verhoeven, Category 'A' Champion
Jason Ortepi, Category 'B' Champion
Dennis DesVignes, Category 'C' Champion

Category A, B & C Champions

Hank, Dan and Damian were the only ones left in the running for Club Champion as we entered the final event... the criterium! Everybody was jockeying for the best draft as nobody wanted to lead out any laps. Hank took both primes with minimal contest from the other riders, it was looking like he may take the race when Damian broke away and nobody chased after him! Eventually Tom and George bridged the gap to form the lead group of 3. In the final sprint to the finish, George showed his extra speed beating the others to the line to take 6 points.

Chantal, Ronnie and Jason continued to play cat-and mouse in the B category throughout the races... Ronnie didn't want to lead, Chantal didn't want him drafting her, and Jason refused to give up! In the end, Jason managed to win 3 of the events, and settled for second in the Hill Climb! Great Job!

Dennis and Rolf had their fun in the C category, with Dennis managing to pull off 3 wins in fine form! He must be training with Ronnie!

Here's the results with points earned from all the events:
