2017 Steaming Nostril and Runny Nose

Guelph ON

The Spring Classics:  Paris-Roubaix, Fleche-Wallone, Tour de Flanders.  Hard one-day races held in the early pro cycling season, often run in adverse conditions, over challenging terrain.   Ontario has its “spring classic” races too, and the Steaming Nostril / Runny Nose has become a fixture in the Ontario early season calendar.   These races, 65km and 40km in distance respectively, are run on the gravel roads in Mennonite country around St. Jacobs.  Racers were treated to a challenging course which included strong headwinds, rolling terrain, beautiful scenery and some deep, deep mud.  The LapDogs Cycling Club and Race Team were out in force for an epic day in the saddle, and were a force to be reckoned with in all categories.
