Springbank 2005

May 2, 2005 – The 37th annual Springbank circuit race got underway under auspicious skies yesterday in London Ontario. With storied names like Bauer, Lovell, Walton and Barry on this prestigous trophy, all the major Ontario teams were lined up, poised to do battle over 72km.

The JetFuel/Sympatico team put two of their boys, Andrew Randell and Joe Guliano in a breakaway with Ital’s Greg Roth and Brandon Crichton that gained a quick 30 seconds on the peleton. The Gears team sensing the danger amassed their team on the front and with the help of La Biccicletta’s duo of Darko Ficko and Heath Cockburn, neutralized the threat.

With two laps remaining Gears former under 23 national champion Ryan Roth bolted off the front, inspiring a heated chase from all seven JetFuel riders. As Roth was gathered up the train continued, with Joey Guliano delivering the JetFuel sprinters Buck Miller and Tim Lefebvre to the line. Placing third was Pavan’s Thorben Wiedtz, followed by last years winner Jeff
Schiller of Gears and Guliano in fifth.

The women’s race saw Merrill Collins take the winning sprint over Leigh Hobson and Colavita-Bolla’s Sue Palmer.
