Peak Centre Winter Racing Series 2010-11 Stage 9 Report

Stage 9 was this season’s only net downhill course, something of a novelty in the winter racing series, where the finish line is actually lower than the start. The 26.25Km course still made riders work hard as they faced some short steep ascents before longer sections of descending.

Vancouver’s riders turned up the heat this week taking the four top spots in the men’s race and coming in first and second in the women’s competition. Tony Zackery was the fastest man on the course finishing in 42:22 ahead of Rob O’Loughlin and Kit Wellburn who finished in 42:40 and 43:42 respectively. Roger Lee took fourth.

The Women’s race was won by Alison Wood who stopped the clock in 45:44 which Michelle Newton hot on her heels in 47:09. Tiffany Boire and Kelly Knowles had a close contest on the east coast for third and forth. Tiffany just edged out Kelly by one second to take third in 47:18.

As always full results and classifications can be found at here.

Stage 10 is plateaus and climbs and the last stage of the sprint contest. Break out those 55T chain rings and get ready to put down some big watts!

Saturday 1pm & 2.30pm,
