Simms repeats; Watson wins second day of racing

By Scott Kelly

Sunday's course treated racers to the classic rolling up and down grind that is a ski hill course and with it, came a new set of challenges. Gone were the windy flat stretches and off camber sections that played so strongly in Greg Reain's favour on Saturday; climbing was the theme of the day. Talk prior to the race focused on gearing. Some of those running nine speeds in the rear had substituted mountain bike cassettes in place of their normal 12-25 spreads. Those who chose to forgo the front derailleur in favour of a more mud-friendly single ring set up were re-evaluating said choices.

There was one thing that most agreed on, however, the favourite was Andrew Watson. Watson has been on a tear as of late and is leading the points in the Southern Ontario Cyclo-cross series. Given his proven ability to perform on hilly courses and buoyed by the knowledge that his beloved Battlestar Gallactica would be back for another season, Watson was looking to do something special. Greg Reain jokingly congratulated Watson on his win on Sunday, before they had left the beer tent on Saturday.

Like the previous day, the competition was fierce from the gun. Almost immediately riders were fighting for lines and for places. Again there was a prime on offer for the first rider to the barriers and Mike Garrigan claimed it for the second time in the process earning himself a brand new pressure washer.

It didn't take long for a split to happen and when it did it was Watson and Garrigan making amends for their mechanical difficulties on Saturday. Working together they distanced themselves from a hard-charging field. With several laps to go, Watson went to work on the climbs. Watson flew up the slopes of Centennial Park riding towards a deserved win. Garrigan was able to hold on for second with previous day's winner Reain coming in for third.

In the women's race Wendy Simms was again favored for the win and she came up with the goods. Simms again proved why she is one of the premiere Cyclo-cross riders in North America. She appeared just as adept on the hills as on the flats and she climbed and descended in a class all her own. Trading spots on the podium from the previous day were Jennifer Stephenson in second and Natasha Elliot in third.
