The 2005 Club Champions are....

2005-0-28 |

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:

Congratulations to the 2004 Club Champions
Dan Thompson, Category 'A' Champion
Chantal Thompson, Category 'B' Champion

Dan Thompson and Chantal Thompson

Dan and Hank were neck and neck in points before the start of the final event... the criterium! It looked like it was going to be a good old fashioned winner-take-all sprint-off. And, it would have been, if the race had only finished one lap earlier! Hank decided to sprint away for the white flag (which mysteriously looked checkered from way down the road) leaving Dan with more than enough speed to beat him to the line on the final lap.

Chantal dominated the B group once again, winning all but the sprint event, where Jason used his extra power to beat her to the line. We may just have to bump her up to the A group next year!

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