PacificSport Riders Storm Nationals Podium

July 22, 2003

A full contingent of Canadian pros contested the Tim Hortons National Mountain Bike Championships in Whistler July 19-20 and riders on the PacificSport cycling program claimed the

honours.

Leading the world-class field in the men's race were Roland Green, Ryder Hesjedal and Seamus McGrath who dominated most of the race. Roland was the clear leader coming into the bell lap when Seamus suffered a mechanical on the last climb and saw his second
place fade. Ryder took second, Geoff Kabush third, Chris Sheppard took fourth and Seamus fifth. Other results: Andreas Hestler 7; Roddi Legga 9; Carter Hovey 12; Menno Hubregtse 37.

In the women's race, Quebec's Marie-Helen Premont took off right from the start and stayed away from Chrissy Redden and Alison Sydor who were locked in a race for second and third place. It was only when Alison suffered a mechanical that Chrissy pulled away to
cross the line ahead of her PacificSport teammate. Trish Sinclair claimed fourth and Melanie McQuaid sixth.

In the men's junior race, Max Plaxton showed his championship form early on as he rode away from the field and had a two minute lead after the first lap.
