CCC Members win 29th CFB Trenton Surf and Turf Relay

CCC members Tim Doris, Chris Herten, and Jeff Clark took top podium spot on Friday in the 29th annul CFB Trenton Surf and Turf relay division.  All three members earned podium spots in their respected legs. Tim completed the first 7.4 km run leg in an impressive 30:33. Chris continued that blistering speed averaging 38.4km/hr over the 23km road bike course, and Jeff’s gamble of using a CX bike on the MTB course seemed to pay dividends.

Mechanicals, Crashes and Podium Spots

In one of the final weekends of the racing season the CCC was well represented yet again with members racing in both the Tour de Hans in Kitchener and the Tour de King in King City.

Chris Herten took on the 100km route of the Tour de Hans and managed to finish 41st overall and only 3 1/2 minutes behind the winner even after a crash that put him out of the lead group. It’s reported that his bike was a little dinged up but any injuries he sustained were quickly forgotten about during the Oktoberfest after-party that followed the race.

After last year’s rainy (snowy), windy, frigid weather, everyone was prepared for the worst for the 2nd annual Tour de King with enough clothing packed for any situation but the weather held off and it turned out to be a beautiful day! It’s a point to point race that takes participants along a route that has some road, gravel, access, and 16km of single track with 35km and 50km options.

Of the 6 of us that went up, there were 4 crashes, 2 mechanicals, 1 wrong turn, and 2 podium spots. I managed to crash in the first 3km where I went sliding across the asphalt (on camera! http://racedayrush.zoomphoto.ca/viewphoto/17455-862-17737530/1/ ) and limped my way to an 8th place finish. Peter Hennessy had a great ride showing his strength in the off-road sections and finished in an impressive 4th place. Lorna Shooter, in her longest off-road race yet, had a crash part way through but managed to grind out a 6th place finish. James Barnes had the legs and lungs and was looking strong but his bike disagreed and decided to break a seatpost collar causing a crash, and finished it off with a flat to give him an 18th place spots. Lee Shooter had a flawless race and took home an amazing 2nd place in the singlespeed category. Kirsty Brown missed a turn early in the race which added an extra 8km and still managed an impressive 3rd place finish.

Way to race CCC!

 

End of Summer Racing

CCC Members were out in droves racing over the past two weekends.

Last Saturday, the 8th of September, Jamie Barnes braved frigid temperatures, torrential downpours and gusty winds for over 5 1/2 hours while completing the Hastings Hilly Hundred, a 100 mile (that’s 160km) citizens race in the Bancroft area. Now that’s dedication!

In the last race of the mountain bike OCUP circuit, the Cabardos boys were at it again with Alain coming in 11th, Louis in 10th after a bad crash that left him dazed, and Emile putting on another podium performance which solidified his 5th place spot in the overall series standings.

This past weekend had many members competing in the Centurion Canada in Collingwood which was the final of a 4 race series.

In the 25mile race, Lorna Shooter came through in 24th, Gord Plue made top 10 in 9th place and Jeff Clark made podium coming across in 2nd place.

The 50mile race saw some amazing results for CCC members with Lee Shooter taking 31st, Gord Plue in 22nd, Jeff Clark in 17th, and Dennis Poort with a very respectable top ten finish. Janet Hozleiter stole the show however, winning her age group and coming 3rd out of all women who competed. Amazing!

Chris Herten, who has competed in all 4 races capped off a stellar season with an 18th place finish in the 100mile race and

On the fat-tire front, there were 8 CCC members racing in the 17th Annual Paul’s Dirty Enduro mountain bike race. This race has 15, 30, 60, and even a 100km option that all boast endless singletrack for hours of fun. Trail conditions were the best I’ve seen at the Ganny on Saturday and our athletes made good use of it.

In the 30km distance, in his first mountain bike race, Gary King came in at an impressive 1:52, Kirsty Brown knocked an unbelievable 27 minutes off last year’s time finishing in 6th place and Alain Cabardos narrowly missed a podium spot finishing in 4th.

The 60km had Will Winn and Glenn Finlay coming across in 32nd and 27th respectively while Emile and Louis Cabardos both had the legs for top ten finishes of the day. Emile placed 9th and Louis, who found the rubber chicken (ask him about it!) had a great performance, came across in a very impressive 5th spot.

Amazing results everyone, you earned it!

 

Weekend Racing August 18-19th

Congrats to Chris Herten for another amazing finish in the Centurion series. He placed 7th in his category and 14th over on Sunday in Ellicottville which moves him up into 4th overall and 2nd in his category for the whole series! Those are some serious results, great job Chris.

Our junior racers were also in action this past weekend at the Ontario Summer Games in Toronto. Jacob Jamnicky and Oliver Blecher competed in the boys triathlon both finishing in the top 10 with Jacob coming across in 8th and Oliver with a 5th place finish. In the girls triathlon, Madison Hathaway crossed the line in a very respectable 23rd place.

Way to go everyone!

 

Race Results

The Cabardos crew were in action again this past weekend taking on Buckwallow Cycling Centre, one of the more technically challenging courses in the Ontario Cup Mountain bike circuit.

Despite having some mechanical issues, Louis manage to pull of an 11th place finish in the master expert men class,and Alain came away with a respectable 17th in Senior sport men. Emile had the legs of the day however and took home a 2nd place podium finish just 17 seconds out of 1st.

Way to go guys!

CCC Members in Action This Past Weekend

Our du/triathlon oriented members were in full force this weekend taking on the Peterborough duathlon and triathlons.  Congrats to Liz and Harold Kuschnik, Toshi Hunt, Stewart Richardson, and Jessica Faser-Thomas for giving it everything they had and notable mention goes to Lee Shooter and Tim Doris for their podium finishes!

Ironwomen, Erin Hathway and Tracey Golaz were down in Indiana tackling the Ironman Muncie 70.3, what an accomplishment!

On the mountain bike side, the Cabardos clan of Louis, Emile, and Alain took on the rocky terrain of OCUP#5 in Sudbury. A string of mechanicals and overall bad luck kept all 3 of them off the podiums but they were all able to cross the finish line, avoiding DNF’s that less skilled individuals would most certainly have gotten.

Way to go everyone, great racing!

Centurion Race Results

Congrats to Chris Herten who finished 16th overall and 6th in a very strong and competitive age group at the Centurion New York this past Sunday. Train hard and good luck at Horseshoe Valley, Chris!

Great weekend results for CCC Members

The Lake to Lake Classic was held this past Sunday, a point to point mountain bike race in the St. Catharines area. It saw club members Louis and Emile Cabardos crossing the line in great time with Louis finishing 22nd overall (5th in his category) and Emile, showing his strength and skill, coming in 18th overall and making podium for 2nd place in his category, amazing!

The weekend also saw CCC member Zach Winn making headlines, finishing 3rd in the Wilmington Whiteface 100 and qualifying for The Race Across the Sky, the Leadville 100, a 100 mile mountain bike race in Colorado. The Leadville’s a grueling race that starts at an elevation of 10,000 feet and goes up from there and has seen winners the likes of Dave Wiens, Lance Armstrong, and Levi Leipheimer. Way to go Zach!

Picture 1 of 13

We had an amazing showing of 9 CCC Members make it out for the Substance Projects Long Sock Classic at the Ganaraska Forest yesterday afternoon. The heat was on and we battled some very challenging terrain but still managed to come away with 5 podium spots between us.

A very honorable mention goes to Kirsty Brown who sacrificed her race to make sure an injured competitor made it safely to the finish.

Awesome job everyone!
