Kabush & Simms take Provincial titles

Vancouver BC, Canada, October 29, 2006

By Philip Meyer

Against all odds the weather in Vancouver held for yet another weekend of Cyclocross. The former National Championship course in Jericho Park was tweaked a little to provide some spectacular racing and no one left wanting for more. This event was acting as the BC Provincial Championship race for Open Men and Open Women as well as the BC Cross Cup presented by Giant series finale - with double points being awarded in the Men A, B and Women A categories.

The first race of the day was also the biggest, as the B Men got underway. Early on a large group of six riders separated themselves from the pack and drove the pace. In the mix were a couple of riders haggling for series points and the coveted title. Graham Tutti, Menno Jangsma, Brad Collins, Jay Murray, Steve Murray and Jason Thompson rode together for a while before dropping off the pace one-by-one, leaving eventual winner Tutti and Jangsma fighting to the end.

Next up were the Women and C Men. Wendy Simms was the class of the field, riding away early to take the BC Championship and race victory. Second went to Kelly Jones, the easy winner of the BC Cross Cup title with her consistent wins, while Sarah Stewart rode strongly for third place.

The B Women had a tighter race with youngster Chelsea Bilsbarrow taking the win over Sherri Iwaschuk and Lesley Trivett.

The C men were sent off after the ladies and had a tough time catching any of them. They had a great battle with Graham Falkowsky taking the win ahead of Dave Markham and Raymond Tse.

The big guns came out for the final race of the day. Geoff Kabush came to town to challenge the BC Cup series regulars Andrew Pinfold, Andreas Hestler, Andrew Kyle and Dan MacDonald. Right from the gun the racing was hard and fast, with a lead group of six-to-eight riders off the front. Kabush seemed happy to get a feel for the course early on and let the others play at the front. It didn't take long before he took over with Andrew Pinfold following as they distanced themselves from the field. BC Cup leader Andrew Kyle had another strong race, dangling just behind the pair. On the final lap Kabush put the power down and rode away from Pinfold to take the BC Championship and race victories. Pinfold rolled in for second with Andrew Kyle trailing behind to take third and a clear win in the BC Cross Series.
