Check out a fantastic picture gallery from Sunday’s Presqu’ile Pursuit. Thanks again to Sarah and Martin Smith for shooting and sorting out all these great photos.
15 CCC members were treated to good company, great racing and perfect conditions at this past Sunday’s Presqu’ile Pursuit.
Our seasoned timekeeper did a fantastic job of grouping the riders fairly and it all came together beautifully at the end with riders from all 4 groups finishing within a minute of one another. There were some great battles out there but the 2 man group of Jamie Barnes and Jeff Clark proved that they had what it took to work together and bring it home with Jamie coming across first, Jeff second and from the last group to leave was Derek Harnden who also had an amazing ride finishing third.
To top off a great morning, we were all invited back to Chris and Julie Herten’s place for a delicious lunch and some well deserved caloric replenishment!
Thanks again to the Hertens for hosting, Dave Singfield for his expertise, and all the wonderful volunteers, photographers and racers who came out to make the day a success. We look forward to doing it again next year!

***Notice to all participants of tomorrow’s Presqu’ile Pursuit***
If you’d like to ride in (for free) you can park outside the gatehouse and ride your bikes to the meeting point or you can drive in (and pay park admission). We will all meet at the parking lot inside the park that is 3km East of the gatehouse, follow the CCC signs.
Course preview and mini learn-to-race clinic will be held at 9:30 but we’d recommend arriving a little early to give yourselves time to get geared up and make it to the meeting spot.
Thanks everyone, see you in the morning!
We’ve got a great group of excited members already signed up for the Presqu’ile Pursuit event on Sunday, September 29th but there is still room for more!
Don’t miss out on this fantastic CCC event and PRE-REGISTER NO LATER THAN THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26TH by emailing email@example.com . In order to make it a success, our group of dedicated timekeepers need to know who will be racing in advance for seeding so there will be no day-of registration.
The weather looks amazing for Sunday right now but we all know things can change quickly in September so in the event of rain, we will post a notification of cancellation on the main page by 8am the morning of the race. Keep your fingers crossed for sunshine!

Don’t miss out on the last Tuesday Night Time Trial and Hilly Time Trial of the season!! It’s been a fantastic year of racing with many personal bests, course records and lots of new members so come on out and give it all you’ve got one last time for 2013.
1st place spots in the points race for each division in the Tuesday series have been clinched but many of the 2nd and 3rd place podiums are still very close between our top racers so it should make for some exciting racing tomorrow night! Check out the points standings to see where you stack up.

The CCC is very excited to announce The Presqu’ile Pursuit, a fantastic late season event being held on Sunday, September 29th at Presqu’ile Provincial Park.
Description: This event will be held in the format of an Australian pursuit which will have riders leaving the start line in small groups based on ability and chosen by our time keepers. The basic idea is that, regardless of their fitness, each rider has a shot at winning because the faster the rider, the later in the lineup they start. Riders are free to work together during the race if they choose but in the end, the first person across the line after three laps takes the cake! Please remember, no time trial bikes or aero-bars are permitted.
Registration: A $5 fee applies payable on race day. In order for this event to happen, we need a minimum number of racers so please don’t leave it ’til the last minute and PRE-REGISTER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org There will be no day-of registration.
Date and Time: Sunday, September 29th. Sign-in is from 10 – 10:15 and the event starts at 10:30am sharp.
*****A pre-event mini learn to race clinic will be held at 9:30am which will give a preview to the course and teach those new to racing the basics of drafting and how to stay safe and have fun during this event*****
Event Location and Parking: The event will be held on the beautifully paved roads within Presqu’ile Provincial Park MAP. You can park just outside the gates and ride in for free or pay the Park’s entrance fee and drive in.
Route: Three laps of a 6km course with stunning views and fast pavement.
