Some exciting races continue among the nominees. Catharine Pendrel has 33% of the vote so far in the Best Overall Cyclist category, followed by Ryder Hesjedal with 21%. It looks like it could be a hat-trick for Pendrel who is also the front runner for the Best Overall Senior/U23 Female Cyclist and the Best MTB XC Senior/U23 Cyclist (Male or Female)
The contest is especially tight in the Best CX Senior/U23 Cyclist. Geoff Kabush leads with 28% of the vote, while Emily Batty and Evan McNeely are tied with 23%.
The Junior categories are still tight as well with Annie Ewart and Benjamin Perry leading but Allison Beveridge and Alex Cataford can still rebound. In the BMX race Tory Nyhaug is pulling away from Connor McCormack and the latter will need a final surge to catch him.
