Westside Classic - Provincal RR Champs

The Westside Classic was Sunday and once again it was the Provincial Road Race Championships and once again Claire made the podium solidifying her spot as one of BC's fastest women. She finished 3rd in a tight sprint with a tough women's field that was ripped apart by Catherine Pendrell on the climbs.

In the Men's 3/4 race Andrew finished 6th with Dave Groves somewhere around 10-12th and Ryan and Paul in the pack but most importantly intact after the big crash in the last corner. Ian contested his first big race of the season with the 3/4's and gained some valuable experience and hosted a wonderful post-race breakfast (pancakes!!!).

Haley raced her first ever road race this weekend and fought hard and finished with a good group in the Women's Cat 4 field. It sounded like she really enjoyed herself so maybe we'll distract her from the mud. For a little while anyhow...
