Paris/Ancaster Memorabilia

 Paris-Ancaster is 25 years old this year, and Tim Farrar is looking for photographs of early years of the Paris-Ancaster race.  If you have anything to share, let me know and I will pass on his e-mail.

2017 Club Champions

Addendum:  Congratulations to Daniel Gregory, this year's winner of the Roger DeRoo award for most improved rider!

With the last race for points for the season now over, a preliminary tally for club championships is now up on the spreadsheet under the Training/Results menu item.  Please have a look and verify that your results have been correctly recorded.  If there are any errors, please bring them to Lorne's attention by e-mail to lfalkens@uwo.ca within the week.  As of this time next week results will be final.

Preliminary results have Andrew House taking the overall "A" championship by 6 points over Eric Hueston in a competition that came down to the last race of the season.  A well-deserved 3rd place goes to Lucas Taylor, who also wins the u19 men overall and u19 men criterium championships.  Andrew takes the "A" road and criterium championships and Scott Breen takes the "A" ITT championship.  Congratulations to Joyce Spruyt on winning the women's overall, road, and criterium championships, and to Rosemary Wedlake on winning the ITT championship.  2nd place in the women's championship goes to Kristen Kit and 3rd to Amy White.  The u19 men road championship goes to Daniel Gregory, who also takes 2nd in the u19 men overall competition, and the u19 ITT championship goes to Daniel Nordemann-DaSilva, who also takes 3rd in the overall.  1st place in the overall "B" competition goes to Simon Graham, 2nd to Liam Langford, and 3rd to Jason Gardiner.  Jason Gardiner is the B road champion, and Simon Graham the B criterium champion.  Congratulations to all.  This was a well attended and very competitive year of club racing.

This year's recipient of the Doug DaSilva volunteer recognition award is Brad Nicol, whose many years of service to the club as treasurer, membership secretary, guy who knows the roads better than anyone else, and much else besides are unmatched, and well worth all our appreciation.

The awards banquet is scheduled for Sunday, October 1 at 6:00 pm at Chaucer's pub.  Tickets ($25) are available now through CCN Bikes.  The banquet will be preceded by an annual general meeting (no ticket necessary) at 4:00pm at the same location.

For the first time this year volunteer and performance recognition awards will be given to those involved with touring.  The awards will be classic, LCW cycling jerseys, as designed by Greg Curnoe.  Further details will be forthcoming shortly from the touring committee.
