Springbank Road Race – Report, 2011

May 6, 2011

I have to start off by thanking my supporters this weekend especially the Secco family in Denfield, Ontario. They were awesome hosts. Cheers.

Once again this season I was late to get to the race, I miscalculated the time it would take me to get lost and eventually find the park, so another OCA race another race without a warm-up. The race was pretty much a blur; there were crashes, stops, torrential rain, and general mayhem. Fortunately I managed to stay upright, and with the winners circle and squeezed out a second place. That gives me 9 points, and makes me think that a move to the big leagues is forthcoming, shortly.

The race itself was short, and somewhat slower than average, with an average speed of 36.something kilometers an hour. Though, the crashes were a major slow down and added to the overall confusion of the entire field.
Congrats to the winner, Tim B. for yet another this year, and to round off the top five Jeff M. from the Waterloo days was a familiar face for the entire race.

This weekend will be a chill one, with a Markham Cyclepath ride (which you should attend), and of course got to buy the mother something for the big day on Sunday.

Cheers to everyone,
See you on the road.
