January 20, 2006 – The course for Stage 5 of the Ride with Rendall/Peak Winter Series presented riders with a combination of rolling hills and step pitches similar to a Belgian classic. Not unlike a Belgian classic, the power riders came to the front while the climbers had to dig deep to maintain contact with the leaders on the flats and downhills. Ride with Rendall Team rider Derrick St. John managed to distance himself from the field with a time of 37:22.7. Just behind him, a four way battle took taking place between Sean Wakefield (38:30.8) , Warren MAcDonald (38:48.5), Glen Rendall (38:54.0) and Marc Roundell (39:04.3).
Cynthia Clark’s continued to establish herself as a GC leader in the women’s standings by taking the Stage win with her steady riding and resulting time of time of 43:13.1. To see more detailed for both fields visit www.ridewithrendall.com
For this weekend’s Stage 6, riders will once again be competing on the series Time Trial course. The TT is the only stage of the 16 race series that is repeated so riders can try to set new course records and personnel PB’s on a profile that will be used once a month throughout the series. The current records are held by Mike Nash (35:21.9) from the Ottawa Bicycle club and Natasha Elliott (38.02.6) from Team Biovale. Since your first race is free if you have never ridden a Multirider race, the challenge is out to see if anyone can beat the course records.
To book you heat and start time or if you require more information call the Peak Centre for Human Performance at 613-737-Peak in Ottawa, 604-299-7959 in Vancouver and 514-341-PEAK in Montreal. The heats are filling up but I will continue to add heats as demand warrants so don’t delay if you wish to see what multi rider racing is all about.
