Paul and Chris, pull in some richly deserved hardware. Lenka, ever smiling after a hard fought battle for 6th in the Women's MTB 70k Marathon.

Substance Projects’ second race in the Marathon race series took place at Ganaraska Forest Centre on May 21, 2017.   A large contingent of the LapDogs Cycling Club / Race Team was on hand to enjoy kilometre after kilometre of buttery-smooth singletrack, fast, wide-open downhills and lung-busting climbs.  Several trips to the podium ensued.  Particular congratulations to Paul “The Hammer” Potvin, who took home some podium hardware (and prize beer) despite it being his first season of cross-country mountainbike racing.  In other news, Barry Cox is currently eating a lot of pizza and ice-cream so he can gain 20lb and duke it out with Paul in the Clydesdale category.
