Cyclocross News!

With only one weekend of cross racing under their belt, the RWR Cross team has already racked up a few podium wins. Read on for a recap of the weekend podiums and events!

It was a final push to get some equipment and clothing to our new riders, but in the end it was worth it. Both Yohan and William pulled on the RWR jersey for the first time and both rode to wins in their first races with the team.

1st Yohan Patry – Junior men, Day 1 Verge Neccs #1, Williston, Vermont (UCI C2)
1st William Goodfellow – Elite/Espoir Men, Race #1 Series Louis Garneau – Magog, Quebec
2nd Yohan Patry – Junior men, Race #1 Series Louis Garneau – Magog, Quebec

In addition to the racing, the third annual RWR Cyclocross clinic was held this past weekend and thanks to the weather, riders in attendance were able to put in 10hrs honing their skills. Glen Rendall and Jason Cheney led those attending through various drills that were all designed to develop skills for the upcoming races.

RWR Cross Team – The Riders

Kiernan Orange – This season will see Kiernan move up to the Espoir ranks after a very successful 2009-2010 cyclocross season in which he represented Canada at the Cyclocross World Championships in Tobar, CZ. Kiernan is a true “product” of the RWR cycling program as he has moved up through the cycling program and developed into the rider he is today.

Greg Reain – Greg is one of a select few that have won the Elite Cyclocross National championships, represented Canada at the World level, and raced as a professional in Europe. Greg’s passion for the sport has been rekindled with the opportunity to mentor up-and-coming riders within the RWR club.

Glen Rendall – Glen brings a wealth of knowledge to the team and the RWR cycling clinics and program. He is a level-3 coach and has represented Canada at the world level in track.

William Goodfellow – William will be coming off a very successful road season highlighted by his recent second place position at the Montreal-Quebec Road Race. Relatively new to cyclocross, William’s fitness and exposure to the NRC road races in the US will transfer nicely to cross.

Yohan Patry – Yohan has been tearing up the cyclocross scene these past few years so it is hard to always remember that he is still a junior. Yohan is joining us after a successful road session with VC Montreal-Cycle Regis. Having won a number of provincial and regional races last year, look for Yohan’s name when Nationals roll around.

In addition to the riders listed above, RWR elite/espoir Road team riders will join the cross team at various provincial and National events. When you combine this with the strong Master and Women riders already representing RWR in the region and beyond, expect to see RWR on numerous podiums this cross season!
