The last Windsor Park Criterium of the season took place on Sunday and two U19 PCC-coached athletes – Parker Swanstrom and Luke Hubner – placed first and second in Category A.
It was an exciting race with a fast field. Three laps from the end Luke launched a counter attack followed by Parker. They opened up a 15 second gap – enough to take the top two spots from the breakaway.
The Windsor Park Criterium is a popular race on the Victoria cycling scene held every July and August and hosted by the Victoria Wheelers Cycling Club. Windsor Park has a rich cycling history. It was established in 1890 as the Oak Bay Recreation Park and in 1895 a bicycle racing track was built by the Victoria Railway and Electric Lighting Company to encourage use of the streetcar system.
