Tara Whitten finished 6th in the time trial and 8th in the road race and Leah Kirchmann was 6th in the road race. Both seem to be doing really well in their cycling carreers!

Other local participants in this world class event included:

Local Sue Schlatter (good friend of Sheila Kealey who also does her fair share of skiing in the winter) - she finished 5th in the time trial

Allison Lampi, a past ski racer for the University of Waterloo and current Chelsea skier/volunteer and resident
