Tuesday Night Criterium - Milton

HAMILTON CYCLING CLUB’S

TUESDAY NIGHT CRITERIUM TRAINING RIDE

by Sandy Cheskey

 

The Tuesday Night Criterium Training Ride Series had the most successful season ever this year with a total of 124 participants. It ran every Tuesday evening from May 1st until August 21st in the High Point Industrial Park in Milton, with the exception of May 22nd when we were rained out. Even then, Zoltan Wighardt, Luciano Serafino and Brendan Duff showed up and had their own training event in the rain.

The season saw some impressive personal improvements for Chris Kiriakopoulos and Zoltan Wighardt. Way to go, guys! Peter Mazur used our event as part of his recovery training after knee surgery and Sue Palmer-Komar came out several times to train here, too.

On August 28th, we had our Awards Ceremony/Party on the start line. We started off with a points race which was won by Paul Rego with Jason Valenti and Luc Serafino tied for second and Mirek Mazur and Paul Hornak tied for third. After that we presented $210 in cash prizes for the top 6 of the season:

Some of the winners of cash awards were planning to donate their winnings to the trust fund for the family of the late Jacek Wierzbicki. In addition, a donation from the fees collected on Tuesday nights will be made to this fund from the Hamilton Cycling Club.

Zack Morris was presented with a cyclo-computer as the youngest participant of the season and Fred Pepper was presented with a pair of “F’Red Hot Pepper” cycling socks to commemorate his second place finish in the National Individual Time Trial Championships in Dieppe, New Brunswick this summer. Twenty-four draw prizes were also awarded as part of the festivities.

It was beginning to appear that we would have no pizza for our party as planned (the order was “in the system” but no one seemed to know where!). Marissa Cheskey saved the day by using her cell phone to track it down and then going to pick it up personally. Thank you, Marissa!

I’ve really enjoyed organizing the Tuesday Night Rides this summer and hope to see everyone back next May!
