When I got to the park the women’s race was already on it’s 3rd of 5 laps. Canadian, Jasmin Glaesser and Cuban Majias Marlies had jumped out to a large lead. Another Canadian rider Allison Beveridge seemed to lead the main group of riders and indeed that was the Gold, Silver and Bronze finishing order. These medals helped Canada post a record setting 202 medals in these games. The settings for the ride through the park were a stunning sight. What a lovely place to stage such a world class event! The men’s race was a grueling 10 laps of this course to complete a 160 Kilometre race. These riders resolve and stamina were put to the test in the tight undulating hills of High Park. The pack seemed to stay together for almost half of the race before a few leaders broke free. Fortunately Canadian rider Guillaume Boivin managed to stay in touch with the lead group and captured a bronze medal. Fellow Canadian Hugo Huole finished 18th and the other two Canadians did not finish. A wonderful sight, a bit of history made and another beautiful Sunday in High Park.
