Race the Ridge

Our good friends over at Local Ride put on another excellent stage race last week. It was comprised of a rainy 22km Time Trial in beautiful Golden Ears Provincial Park, a rainy, technical Crit in downtown Maple Ridge, and a cloudy but dry Road Race on the tough Thornhill Circuit.

Mighty had some good representation. Claire finished 6th in the TT, 5th in the Crit, 2nd in the RR and 5th overall. In the Cat 3/4 men: Andrew finished 11th overall, Ryan was 31st overall and Dave Groves had his first taste of a big race weekend and loved it.

I only competed in the Time Trial. I was unhappy with my time but at least I was dry. Ok, maybe this pic just reflects how slow I felt and how epic the conditions were.

Congratulations to all the kids who made it out for a great weekend of racing!
