This was Australian Handicap with 1st group at 8:40am 2nd at 9:00 am and scratch group at 9:20am. We had 12 riders in all. Marie Claire with expected riders like Wayne Atanas floored with a baseball accident (baseball?) rode a 100km TT/RR and almost had victory when caught with 4km to go. Doug had to retire with cramps after riding strongly for the first 7 laps. Matt Gallo after a few weeks absence due to injury was also riding well till he flatted. He jumped back in but had a lap to recover. No go. Rest of the pack (9 riders) rode together till the last hill when Walter Furlan and Shawn Cranwell pulled ahead for a 1 - 2. But the trophy goes to new member (but old friend of the club) Chris Komar 5th across the line but 1st HCC member. Mark is riding superbly this year and came in 7th. It was a cool start with threatening clouds - but other than a few spits at the end of the 8th lap the rain held off and in fact we had a good bit of sunshine but a fair bit of wind. Imagine the writers horror as racing secretary to show up at the start and discover a garage sale in full force across the street - was this the dreaded Ayr garagesaleamania? Fortunately not and it interfered little with the race. Matt's dad even bought a bell lap for our race there!
Here is Mike Hruska's response as to why he did not defend his Keyes title
Mike wishes Chris (Oscar Friere) Komar congratulations on his win. He is sorry he could not be there to enjoy the race with his HCC friends and competitors. Mike was in Ottawa on the weekend to win the OCUP Junior 2007 Provincial Criterium Championship and also the overall Criterium Race for Juniors and Senior 3/4 Men. It was a good race with Mike testing the field a number of times, but unable to pull away with the ankle injury he has been nursing the last 4 weeks. On the last lap he set up well, pulled away on the last hill and sprinted to the finish for a clean win for the gold.

Fred Peper has now confirmed the actual 20km distance was 567 metres beyond where it should have been making the total distance 41.1 km instead of 40km. Accordingly we provide adjusted times below
|25||Mary Clare Haley||75:10||73:05|
|11th||Marie Clare Hayley*||HCC||1:24:35|
|12th||Marva Taylor*||HCC||1:22:30 (1 lap down)|
*For the first time this race was done as an Australian Pursuit with non elite riders given a 7 minute start. This will be retuned for the Andy Keyes using the above to calculate more equalizing gaps. There will probably be three cats.
