Centennial Park 'Cross - C2

Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada, November 10, 2007


Reain and Simms win first races of weekend

By Scott Kelly

Competitors from across Ontario and the US met in Toronto over the weekend to battle it out on the slopes of Centennial ski hill at the first annual Toronto UCI C2 International Pro-Am Cyclo-cross Race weekend. It would be the first time this year that all of Ontario's top riders, along with a few American wildcards, would converge in one place.

On Saturday, racers were faced with a long, flat challenging course that was a serpentine affair which rewarded riders who could push a big gears.

Buoyed by a CAN$135 first lap prime, Saturday's elite men's race was fast from the gun. Mike Garrigan (Epic Ride/Jetpower), newly crowned Canadian National Cyclo-cross champion, took the money for being the first through the beer tent barriers. Unfortunately what momentum he had was hindered by an early puncture.

A group containing all the favourites quickly formed and the race was on. Positions would change but it was still very much anyone's race until the closing laps when Greg Reain (Ride with Rendall) decided to make his move. It was a course suited to his style of riding and when Reain went, no one could respond. Reain finished thirty seconds clear of second placed Osmond Bakker (Stevens Cross) with Nathan Chown (Handlebars CC) rolling in for third.

In the elite women's race pre-race favourite and reigning Canadian National champion Wendy Simms (Kona-Yourkey.com) led from start to finish. Owing much to her strong legs and flawless riding she was simply the class of the field. Knowing the UCI points would earn her a favourable spot on the start line at next weekend's USGP in New Jersey; Simms was out for the win. Natasha Elliot (Stevens Cross) continued her strong cross campaign in second place and Jennifer Stephenson (Team Ultralink) in third.
