December 31/12 9:15 am - Superior Glass 4 Day Final Report and results
Posted by Editoress on 12/31/12
Tyler Farrar of Garmin Sharp continued on his winning streak from the previous night at the Burnaby Velodrome for Day 4 of the Superior Glass 4 Day presented by Wolfe Auto Group, taking both the opening race and the feature ahead of Kyle Buckosky and Zak Kovalcik in both races. Farrar won with 114 points ahead of Buckosky’s 97 and Kovalcik’s 77.
Gillian Carleton and Steph Roorda steamrolled to victory in the women's Madison, finally putting the pesky duo of Erin “Gumdrop” Glover and Claire Cameron a lap down on the last night. Jenny Lehmann and Laura Brown hung in for third overall.
The exhibition 3000 metre Pursuit between Tyler Farrar and the Canadian women’s Team Pursuit team lived up to its top billing. Farrar went out to an early lead and by the half way point it was only metres separating the two opponents, with the lead changing every half lap. The trio of Carleton, Roorda, and Brown then surged ahead in last three laps only to have Farrar make a comeback near the end that fell just short, with the women besting Farrar by about a bike length.
In the C’s it was Stephen Butchart winning the overall, Spencer Mulder in second and Ephraim Soira in third. James Hilyer from LA took the B Omnium ahead of John Wood and Mike Buckosky. The women’s Omnium was won by Meghan Grant over Jenny Gerth and Melanie von Stettan.
Many thanks go out to all our volunteers and sponsors Superior Glass and Wolfe Auto Group, as well as Moveo physiotherapy and Big Surf Beer.
