Great Pigeon Lake Photos Here (UPDATE)

Heather Kay's husband, Mark, was out taking some great shots of the race last Sunday. Have a look through them, there are a ton of Speed Theory Cycling.

Mark has created a coupon for Speed Theory Racers to use at his site that will give you 25% off any picture order using the coupon code: speedtheory25. He donated the great shot to the left!

Here is the exciting finish with Speed Theory going 1 and 2 in the Cat4 mens race. Congrats to Mark Jesse and Clarke Ellis for their wicked performances!

Thanks guys! I finally executed a good tactical race. Did no work besides the little bit that I did when I thought a serious break was forming, and just sat in until the sprint. When we rounded the last corner there were a few guys that went, but I waited until I saw someone who had a decent chance go and I jumped on second wheel behind him. Perfect lead out. I thought I had it until Mark passed me at the last second. I was so glad to see it was him!

Awesome race! Now that I'm in cat 3 I'm really scared...

Thanks guys, congrats to Clarke on the upgrade to Cat3. The Cat4 race was surprisingly mellow except for a few unsuccessful breaks by a couple of guys. We had a crash on the last lap that Michael Godfrey and I narrowly missed. We TT'd back up to the pack but I was a bit rattled after that. Not sure of injury status of other riders - hopefully nothing major and everyone is ok.

It all came down to the final sprint and a bunch of guys took off early. Clarke and I waited until the right moment and then hit the gas. I felt strong and snuck by Clarke in the final few meters (sorry buddy!).

Great race, looking forward to Banff!
