PCC athlete Tyler Trace second in the Cyclocross Nationals

October 15, 2009

Amid snow and icy conditions Pacific Cycling Centre’s Tyler Trace competed in the Cyclocross National Championships last weekend in Edmonton. With temperatures in the -4 C to -6 C range, and a snow packed course, riders found the conditions challenging.

Despite the slippery terrain and gusty winds Trace was a podium contender from the start chasing leader Geoff Kabush. He was in a pack of three for much of the race chasing the leader, and it wasn’t until the last lap and a half that the bronze medal position was decided.

“The Nationals weekend was a new experience for me as it was the first time I have raced in snow,” said Trace. “The wind and freezing temperatures made things interesting, so warm gloves and shoes were critical.” Overall he was pleased with how the race went although disappointed that he came 4th. “I was hoping for a podium result so 4th was a bit disappointing, but the top three rode very well.” He enjoyed the experience though and praised the organization. “The Edmonton cycling club Juventus put on a great race. The course was a lot of fun and I would like to thank all the fans who were out there cheering in the cold.”

His next race is the Centennial Park Cross in Toronto next weekend (October 17-18).
