January 25, 2007 – On the first long course stage of the RWR/ Peak Winter Series, Marc Boudreau continued his campaign to overtake Warren MacDonald in the Overall GC when he posted the fastest time of Marc was the only rider to come close to the hour mark on tough 36.69km course that brought strength and endurance into play. Going into the stage, Warren held a comfortable 24point lead in the GC standings until a minor mishap and some strong riding from Marc reduced the lead to 9pts at the end of the day.

RWR/ Peak Winter Series – Stage 7

February 2, 2006 – All eyes were on Aaron Fillion at the a start of the RWR/ Peak Winter Series’ stage 7. After the beating Aaron handed out in the time trial last week, everyone was wondering if he could do it again on stage 7’s much hillier course. While the climbers were more in their element this week, Aaron still pounded out the wattage to get ahead far enough to prevent them from catching him on the final climb before the course leveled out. Derrick St. John’s was the closest rider but still of the mark of 38:55.6 set by Aaron.

The woman’s race played out the same way with shear wattage winning the stage. Natasha Elliott’s average wattage of 261w took her to first place in her category and 9th overall.
