2008 Tim Hortons Road Nationals — Open Women\’s Criterium Full Results – Collins Wins Updated

June 30, 2008 (Saint-Georges, QC) — Merrill Collins (ON) La Bicicletta has won the Open Women’s 42km Criterium championship in Saint-Georges over Jenny Trew (BC) Vanderkitten in second and Steph Roorda (BC) Giant Canada in 3rd. Laurie-Anne Dupont Renaud (QC) Équipe du Québec who placed 4th was the top junior woman.

A heated debate followed the race as the organizers wanted to reduce the prize money because of the low turn out – 24 women raced – which made the race less competitive. Given that the Criterium is almost a week before the road races this coming weekend not all riders were in attendance. But the riders contended that their time and expenses to attend the event were the same regardless and won out in the end. However there was some discussion that the women’s Criterium may be cancelled in the future.
