Bisaro Posts Career Best

May 30, 2004

Kiara Bisaro and Alison Sydor cracked the top-10 Sunday at the second round of the Word Cup of mountain biking in Houffalize, Belgium. Marie Helene Premont of Chateau Richer, Que., was the top Canadian in sixth spot while Kiara of Courtenay, B.C., had a personal best placing of seventh. Alison, of North Vancouver, suffered leg cramps in the final lap and faded from third to ninth. (training for cyclists)

Norway's Gunn-Rita Dahle captured her second straight victory in the series, with a winning time of two hours, eight minutes and 50 seconds over the 38.3-kilometre course. American Alison Dunlap finished second while Italian Annabella Stropparo was third.

Even though she didn't make the podium, Bisaro was happy with her performances. "This is my best finish ever in a World Cup, and certainly helps my chances for (Olympic) selection," said Bisaro. Sydor is the top-ranked Canadian in the overall World Cup standings. She sits sixth overall with 500 points. Dahle, the leader, has 770 points.

In Sunday's men's race, Roel Paulissen of Belgium edged out Switzerland's Christoph Sauser for the win. Former World Cup champion Roland Green of Victoria was the top Canadian in 29th place, 11:35 off the pace.

Green had to overcome a poor start position that put him six rows behind the frontrunners. "My start to the season has been rough, but it is moving in the right direction now," said Green.

The World Cup circuit moves to Fort William, Scotland next weekend.
