The long Thanksgiving weekend brought with it some amazingly warm fall weather for cyclocross’s Ontario Cup #4 at Hardwood Hills. Often the scene of Provincial and National mountain bike races, the venue was transformed into a challenging cyclocross race course. 

Features of the course included four forced diss-mounts per laps with hurdles, a double sand trap, a sand climb and a stair climb. Ouch!

While this may have been the toughest course of the ‘cross season so far, it certainly didn’t deter your Duke’s Cycle Cannondale LapDogs from putting together a most impressive collection of results, including 5 podiums! 

 Marcus and Russell, take two of three spots on the Master 3 podium.
