Horseshoe Valley Interclub Road Race and Series Standings

20 brave and hardy souls congregated in the Horseshoe Valley area north of Barrie in 13 degree weather with a light but increasing cold wind out of the north for the third and final Interclub race of the season. Group 2 started us off with a 14 minute head start on Group 3. It seems that there was a split in this group as their three strongest riders were able to stay away from all of the chasing groups to form our podium. Donovan Pollitt of the NECC broke away from his companions on the tough grind up line 2 into the wind and sprinted to victory by a few hundred metres over Andre and Peter who were photo finish for the two remaining podium spots. The hard charging chasers from a strong group 3 came in about 5 minutes later with Gary Poyntz of CCC sprinting ahead of the four others from his group who finished close behind. Our two elite riders were in tough as they had to ride alone the entire day with a lot of minutes to make up. Jon was able to make up the 7 minutes on Dave, and really just needed a minute or so more to finish in the mix with the group 3 gang. All in all, a great day for racing! Afterwards, cookies, brownies and beverages were consumed (provided by Cliff and Karen Lilley and the BCC) and the top riders for the season series were recipients of some nice prizes (thanks to Cliff and Bikeland Sports of Barrie for gathering these!). Thanks to Cliff Lilley for organizing on behalf of the Barrie Cycling Club who hosted this event. Thanks also to Karen Lilley for assisting with registration, and spotting the finishers. With much of the BCC away riding in Europe, we really need to thank Cindy Szymanscia for stepping up to help the riders through the Bass Lake Road stop sign to begin the race (perhaps saving all of Group 3 from a ticket as we waited for the OPP to pass!)    Thanks...Mike Emerson
