Geoff Kabush achieved Canada’s best result since 2003 in the Mountain Bike World Championships in Canberra, Australia last weekend. The Victoria native finished fifth in the Elite Men’s cross-country race. The previous best was the silver medal position won by Ryder Hesjedal six years prior.
Kabush was pleased with the results considering he had to stop on the third lap to change his tire. “This lost me a few seconds and I couldn’t get back into the lead group,” he said. Kabush also had a head wind to contend with in the 45-kilometre race, so he spent the rest of the race on his own. “But I was pleased — this is by far my best result at a world championship.” His finish time was 2:06:43.
Pacific Cycling Centre cyclists also competed in the event — Max Plaxton came in 22nd and Seamus McGrath in 42nd.
