Mt. Norquay Race Report

The suffer-fest known as the Mt. Norquay Hill Climb Championships was held under ideal conditions. Sunny and warm with only a little wind at start time, times were sure to be fast on the freshly paved 5.4 km climb to the ski lodge.

Speed Theory was well represented, and we didn't disappoint the fans at corner seven. Dennis Bland brought home silver in Master Men A. I won silver and Darryl Parry took bronze in Cat. 5. Good suffering was had by all ST racers. Congratulations go out to all of the day's winners. A special congrats to handcyclist Brian Martin and para-athlete John Bereczki. Great efforts!

Thanks to Andy, Carol, and RMCC for putting on a great event!

P.S. Speed Theory now has a team mascot: Jaya the Tiger!

Full results are here.

We give props to great performances by riders from all clubs. Yours was the most impressive I've seen all year!

Darryl, I have your medal. Are you at 'cross tomorrow?


Darryl said...


I'm planning on showing up at Laycock Park tonight for surveillance. Thanks for transporting my hardware.

Nice work boys! Darcy, good to see you're still working those hills!

I'll be at the office late so I may miss the 'B' race, but I will be there at some point.
