This past weekend saw a very large contingent of from the Duke’s Cycle Cannondale LapDogs Road Team heading out towards Ottawa for the Calabogie Road Classic. 

Always a favourite, this race is run on an old car racing circuit which features a very wide surface smooth surface. Ideal for bicycle racing with just about every race ending in an exciting field sprint. 

Amongst the highlights, this race also featured one of the largest women’s fields in recent history. This bodes well for our sport.
