07.01.11 - CHRIS PRENDERGAST
AND ALLISON BEVERIDGE CROWNED CRITERIUM CANADIAN JUNIOR
Downtown Toronto celebrates cycling as Criterium races
are a success on Canada Day
On a sunny Canada Day, the best junior and master riders
of this celebrated country took to the streets at Exhibition
Park of Toronto, ON for the presentation of the Criterium
race at the 2011 IMMUNITY-FX Canadian Road Championships
powered by Cannacord Wealth Management.
Team Manitoba’s Chris Prendergast took his first
ever Canadian jersey, winning the men’s junior
criterium in a sprint to the finish line against Justin
Zottl of Team Planet Energy powered by SpiderTech, who
finished second and Charles Matte of Team Nippour-Devinci.
In the women’s race, sprinter Allison Beveridge
of Team Alberta took the victory, beating to the line
our 2011 Time Trial junior champion Annie Ewart of Cycling
BC and Audrey Bernard of Planet Energy powered by SpiderTech.
The three girls rode solo for the majority of the race,
riding together until the second last lap, where the
battle started and lasted all the way to the finish
The top junior men riders rode 50 minutes of the 1.4-kilometre
course before receiving the 2-lap notice, while the
junior women rode 40 minutes before the two-lap notice.
The 2011 IMMUNITY-FX Canadian Road Championships are
continuing tomorrow with the para-cycling road races,
followed by the Master and Junior road races on Sunday.
