The 26th edition of Paris to Ancaster took place on Sunday as over 2,500 riders line-up for the 70 km, 40 km and family rides that are part of the event. The elite field was stacked with UCI Continental racers, pro cyclocrossers and world-class mountain bikers.

It was a duo of Canadian mountain bikers who triumphed on the day with Peter Disera (Norco Factory Team) narrowly edging out X Speed United’s William Elliot in the men’s race. Jenn Jackson (AWI Racing) had an incredible ride to win the women’s race by over 9 minutes and despite a mechanical late in the race crossed the line in 21st overall.

On the final steep climb in Ancaster, family members and friends lined the course to cheer on the riders who climbed, cramped and slowly crawled to the finish line. At the top, everyone caught their breaths and shared stories from another memorable ride at Canada’s spring classic.
