2009 Toronto Criterium – Results, Photos

by pedalmag.com

May 29, 2009 (Toronto, ON) – With mostly clear skies, balmy summer temperatures, and lots of fans on hand the 2009 Toronto Criterium began looking bigger and better than last year when rain joined the party. Christiane Knobbe (Team Mcor) has won the women’s race while Bryan Spiegel (Independant) took the Master 2/3 Men’s competition, Anton Varabei (Cycle Solutions/Angry Johnny’s ) won the Master 3/4 Men’s race, and Brandon Spencer (Peterborough) took the Junior men’s race.

The Elite men’s race is now underway and scheduled to end around 9pm — but it might yet rain again this year as dark clouds are gathering. About halfway through the men’s race the rain began and continued until the end as Andrew Randell (Planet Energy) escaped to lap the field and take the win as team mate Ryan Roth placed 2nd and Ryan Nye (MVP Healthcare) took 3rd.
