WRCS No.12

It was with a heavy heart that the group embarked on the final WRCS of the season. The riders were faced with 40+km/h winds on the way out and a washboard trail condition for a good portion of the route, a fine display of euro riding.

Congratulations to the top 3 finishers for a hard fought and tactical series, and to the Butcher for an incredible display of eye hand co-ordination in the feat of skills showdown. Thanks to all the riders who attended throughout the series in a variety of conditions - awards ceremony to be announced in the coming weeks.

The tough conditions took its toll mentally and physically towards the end, one cyclist stated "look out for the car" while riding down the Greenway - in actuality it was a stick.

    Sweet job running the series and the blog Adam; everyone is fitter bec of you. Thanks to coach Chow for the advice on the egg race; I owe my victory to you. See everyone on the road this summer. P.S.- I hate the greenway!

  2. Not impressed with the 18 points issued, I think I did enough pleading to be issued a full 423 and along with it the title. I am boycotting the first 11 rides next year in protest.
    That being said thanks fellas I had a lot of fun.
    And Adam give the car instead of a branch guy a break...he was away from my nipple.

  5. Sorry Wayne, points are adjusted and by alphabetical order you get to bring up the rear. Car/branch guy is definitely sitting on the couch right now with a glazed over look and an infant poking him in the face.

  7. Thanks for the great rides this winter. Sorry I missed the last few, but a recent injury side lined me. Thanks Adam for the organizing. And to the riders for teaching a rookie the fine art of "mastering the group ride".

  10. That's funny son!
    Hopefully they get a contract sorted out so they can continue to manufacture branches in Windsor.

  13. Awesome job organizing the WRCS Adam. Thanks to the guys helping me through the stupid green way, there's to many to name; it was much appreciated. And that branch, it was pretty big; easily mistaken for a wood-paneled car.
