Blizzards race in the snow

**Submitted

Pat Ferris made it two in a row by winning the Frozen John Roubaix race, Sunday. He won the 16 km hilly and snowy route with a time of 25:31 minutes. Gary Hilderman was second at 27:19 and Gord "The Hammer" Harris third at 29:17.    

2008 series winner Bob Andrews was 4th at 30:30 as well as a crash and Barb Polehoykie 5th at 37:21 after some mechanical troubles.    

The start was a balmy -13, which was the warmest start so far in the three race series. A steady falling snow made the circuit slippery and the long 15 percent grade climb difficult. Only two riders managed to ride all of the steep climb on both laps.    

Pat Ferris leads the three race series with ten points. Gord Harris, Barb Polehoykie, Gary Hilderman, Bob Andrews and Dean Lowry all have 4 points each.
   

Next Sunday is the final event, which is the Two Rivers Roubaix, starting at the Baldonnel School at 2 pm.     www.ferrisfastcycles for details and pictures.
