Robin Baillie won Sunday's Blizzard cyclo-cross event doing 7 laps of the 2.8 km North Peace circuit, with a time of 50:19 minutes. Pat Ferris was second, also with 7 laps at 58:33 and Grande Prairie's Blaine Richter third at 6 laps, 53:17.
Kevin Cooper was 4th at 54:38, Bob Andrews edged out Gord 'The Hammer' Harris for 5th at 56:09 for 6 laps, Sam Keats did 6 laps with 59:07 for 7th, Dean Lowry 6 laps 59:56, Barb Polehoykie 6 laps 1:00:09 and Adam Currie 5 laps at 58:19.
The weather and circuit conditions were very dry and fast as compared with last Sunday and Thursday's snow and mud. The course features grass, gravel paths, part of a running track and two run-ups with obstacles.
Robin Baillie (+HR Block) led from the start with Pat Ferris chasing. Blaine Richter and Kevin Cooper battled it out for third, changing leads numerous times before Richter pulled away to seal the final podium spot. Bob Andrews and Gord Harris also battled it out for 5th with Andrews pulling away in the final laps.
Coming up: Sunday Cyclo-cross at 2 pm North Peace.
