The Prairie Steamer Stage Race, held this past weekend in and around Calgary, features a rolling road race in the foothills west of Cochrane, a Hill Climb Time Trial in Edworthy Park near the centre of Calgary, and a Kilometre (men)/500 metre (women) Time Trial on the Glenmore Velodrome.
This year's event also featured plenty of rain, with all but the Category 5 kilo's being cancelled. The road race served as selection event for the Alberta Provincial Road Team, which will compete at the National Road Championships and the Tour de l'Abitibi.
Overall winners included Alison Testroete (Cyclemeisters/Bow Cycle) in the Women's category and Nick Friesen (The Bike Shop) in Category 1/2 men.
