Tour of Pelham – Chown and Illingworth Win

release by the Tour of Pelham

April 5, 2009 (St. Catharines, ON) – The ninth annual Tour of Pelham went off under gray, cold skies as riders were forced to endure the aftermath of two days of steady rain. A total of 160 rides lined up at the bottom of Hydro Hill in St. Catharines to battle the 30km loop through Niagara.

Through country roads, back lanes, single-track, chutes and lots of ladders the course challenged even the most seasoned veterans, paying homage to all of the great spring classic courses around the world.

Nathan Chown of Handlebars, the local cyclocross guru, distanced himself from the field up the opening climb with local rider Guy Vankrimpen tucked in behind. Buck Miller of Team Planet Energy chased furiously in the company of Kyle Douglas and Jamie Davis with veteran rider David Enns further back.

Chown attacked and left Vankrimpen to solo in to repeat his 2008 victory in a time of 66 minutes. Vankrimpen of SCCC placed second in 67:50 with Miller having to carry his mountain bike over the last kilometer and Douglas and Davis leaving him on their cross rides to take fourth and fifth.

Briana Illingworth took the female division in a time of 1:36:47 over local rider Aly Armstrong and defending champion Deb Clarke of Brant Cycle. Special thanks to the St. Catharines cycling club and Lake to Lake events for all contributing to a great kick-off to the Ontario calendar.
