Horseshoe Resort Canada Cup XCO – Elite Women

After stops in British Columbia and Quebec, the national XC series landed in Ontario for the fourth round, and the halfway point of the 2018 season. Haley Smith (Norco Factory Racing) made the most of a rare opportunity to race in her home province during the busy World Cup season, taking a comfortable lead early in the elite Women’s race to win her first Canada Cup of the season. Behind Smith, AWI Racing’s Jenn Jackson landed a third straight Canada Cup podium and defended her lead in the series by finishing second ahead of Quebec’s Cindy Montambault (Trek).

Horseshoe Resort Canada Cup XCO – Elite Men

Silverback OMX’s Raphaël Gagné fended off a crowded elite Men’s field to claim his first Canada Cup win of the season. After taking an early lead with his Forward Racing teammate Sean Fincham, Andrew L’Esperance dueled with Gagné for much of the Horseshoe Resort race, before crossing the line in second, just 14 second back. Quinton Disera (Norco Factory Racing) followed in third, ahead of U23 national champion Fincham. Senior national champion Peter Disera snapped a chain off the start line, with the Norco Factory Racing rider fighting back through the field to finish fifth at the end of the day.

After win’s in Baie-Saint-Paul and at home in Mont-Tremblant, Félix Burke (Rocky Mountain Bicycles) finished seventh at Horseshoe Resort, keeping his lead in the series overall points race. Burke leads Equipé du Quebec’s Alexandre Vialle with 615 points to Vialle’s 445, while Durango, Colo.’s Daniel Johnson (Bear Pro Team) sits in third at 399 points. Behind them, there is a three way tie for fourth between Andrew L’Esperance, Felix Longpré (Mont-Sainte-Anne) and Evan Guthrie (Race Face/Fox/OTE/Kal Tire), all with 375 points.

Horseshoe Resort Canada Cup XCO – Junior Women

Continuing the weekend’s theme, Roxanne Vermette (Mont-Sainte-Anne) landed her first Canada Cup of the season at Horseshoe Resort, with series leader Marianne Théberge (Equipe du Quebec/Mathieu Performance) finishing second and Mirelle Larose-Gingras (Equipé du Quebec) third. The win bumps Vermette up to fourth in the series standings, just five points shy of Team USA’s Madeline Robbins. Théberge keeps her series lead, with 355 points to Larose-Gingras’ 280. The series takes riders best four results of the seven stops, though, so there is still time for a shakeup in the standings.

Horseshoe Resort Canada Cup XCO – Junior Men

Equipé do Quebec had a stellar weekend in Ontario, with Charles-Antoine St-Onge winning the Junior Men’s race ahead of Tyler Clark (Homestead Racing) and William Côté (Equipé du Quebec). Clark closes in on Holden Jones (Pendrel Racing) and Crter Woods (Dodge City Cycles/Rocky Mountain/CyclingBC) in the points race, with 262 points to Jones 285 and Woods 270. Like the Junior Women’s series, the best four results count at the end of the season, so this points race is one to watch.

Horseshoe Resort Canada Cup XCO – Under-17

Juliette Larose-Gingras (Velo Cartel X BL Coaching/CVM Sigma Assurance) won the U17 Women’s race at Horseshoe Resort, putting her in the lead in the points race, just ahead of the second place finisher Nicole Bradbury (NCCH p/b Franklin Tempelton). On the Men’s side, Jérémie La Grenade (Skinouk-VDM /Gatineau) won his race and sits third in the series behind the weekends second place finisher Owen Clark (Homestead Racing). With wins at Mont-Tremblant and now Horseshoe Resort, La Grenade is well positioned in the best four of seven series.

Three races remain in the 2018 Canada Cup XCO series. Trek Store Canada Cup in Ontario takes place this coming weekend, before the series takes a coast-to-coast trip to visit Whistler B.C., followed by the final round in Kentville, Nova Scotia in August.
