Sleet, snow and rain, combined with a stiff cold breeze, added to the challenges at the Hardwood Cross, the fifth and penultimate round of the Ontario Cup Cyclo-cross series. Lisa Holmgren (Velocity Ski & Bike) and Andrew Watson (Norco Factory Team) proved themselves best able to handle both the conditions and the slippery, sinuous three kilometre course on their way to winning their respective categories.
Elite & Master Women
Rain turned to wet snow as Holmgren led the women’s field off the line, followed in the early going by Antje Thamm (Invita-FCV), Siobhan Kelly (Adrenaline Racer/ToWheels) and Ashley Barson (CoachChris.ca/Ted Velikonja).
