2014 Wrap up

Michael Aston runs the sand pit
Clouds threatened early on but the sun managed to come through at just the right time. Racers took off through the field and onto the course with the leaders separating themselves early on after the sand pit and through the technical forest section before the start/finish. With three time Champion Peter Mogg absent from the start line, the title was up for grabs. Mike Aston, who narrowly missed out on the win in 2012 to Mogg, decided to forgo his chance at Canadian Cyclocross Nationals this weekend for his shot at redemption. It turned out to be the right call as he distanced himself from the competition early on to take his first title as HallowCross-Sarnia Champion. Tim Gale, Mike Grumet and Ray Auger followed in hot pursuit for the first 30 minutes before falling off, as Astons pace proved to be too much on the fast flowing course. In the womens race, Vanessa Staffer kept the young guns Farleigh & Charlotte Cheswick at bay to take her first title as HallowCross-Sarnia Champ. The two sisters are ones to watch out for in the future. Notable mention goes to HallowCross-Sarnia vet. Ken Vanermeer made his 5th straight start and showed no signs of slowing down.
