Canmore Sunlight World Cup
The Junior Men have just completed their race. Rocky Mountain rider Jaimie Douglas won with a gap of 1:09 on Kris Sneddon. Jaimie said that the course is "Fabulous.......super fast." The little bit of rain last night has had virtually no effect on the ridability of the surface.
Jaimie was very happy to win today. He had one minor crash, but this had no effect on his ride. "I set out riding my own pace, when I looked back...... there was no one with me."

The Junior Men's race was shortened at the last minute to 3 laps from the scheduled 4.
Seamus McGrath will NOT start today's race. Reason given is that since he has met his qualification for the Olympics and the next major race sor selections will be the Nationals in 2 weeks, he is better off spending his time training and preparing for Nationals.
