Swift Current Cycling Classic -- Day Two

The good racing continued on day two. Sunday morning was the crit race, held in the parking lot of the Swift Current Mall. The course was probably around 600-700 metres long, with one really tough chicane corner. Halfway through the race two of us were out front, so we divided up the primes and I took the win and the points to clinch GC (I'll give more details in person). Unfortunately, the downer of the day was a crash in cat 4 which resulted in a broken femur for the racer. Hopefully he's back up riding soon!

Sunday afternoon was the 3.5 km hill climb north of town. Now, the hill was nothing like Apex, but it was steep enough to put some sting in the legs. Not one to mail in a hill climb, I took the win with a 39 second gap.

So, it was a good weekend. Four races, four wins. I'd highly recommend this race for next year. Good courses, good organization, and good prize money. And, it's closer than Saskatoon!
