July 22, 2015 (Milton, ON) – Canada’s Hugo Houle claimed gold and Sean MacKinnon the bronze in the 37.0km Pan Am Games Men’s ITT today with stellar performances on the 2-lap course near the Milton Velodrome where the track team delivered 10 medals to the overall total (6G 2S 2B). Ignacio Prado (MEX) finished second on the day.

Ontario’s MacKinnon was the first rider on course, as a cyclist from Trinidad did not start, and set the best early check point times, with Prado taking over until Houle smashed all times. At the finish Mackinnon’s time was solid but Prado came in about 20s faster. Then Quebec’s Houle, the reigning Canadian Elite Men’s champ, took no prisoners as he finished over a minute up on Prado for the gold.
