HCC Riders Rock Today’s Paris to Ancaster

After 60km, HCC's Sarah Rasmussen took 3rd in age 16-19 women at Paris to Ancaster 2010.

“For over a century the roads of northern Europe have been home to the toughest bicycle races in the world. The most famous of these, Paris to Roubaix, takes place each spring over brutal cobblestone roads that have been preserved in their historic condition for over 100 years. Inspired by this classic race, the Paris to Ancaster has taken place for the past sixteen years over the roughest farm lanes, trails and gravel roads we can find.” — Parisancaster.com

Just like Good Friday, April weather proved no problem at all for today’s Paris to Ancaster race, which drew large fields to the Classics-inspired event. And had you looked for the red and white of an HCC jersey – or peeled back the wrapping on many another team’s kit – you would have found lots of racers from the Hamilton Cycling Club. Congrats to all who raced!
