It was a tug of war between Matt and Peter Archambeault with Matt winning on Ridge Rd then Peter ahead on Snake. Then Matt bested Sydenham over Peter by two seconds! Meanwhile Tony Morelli defending champion had best overall times on Snake and Sydenham. It came down to the 40k TT at Falkland. Tony was up on Ottawa doing a 200km jaunt so our two lads had to battle it out. In the end Matt did a 57:47 to Peter’s 1:00:46! Well done lads!
