2014 EVENT RECAP:

Defi Sportif TT and RR, Montreal, QC

May 3rd & 4th

Race Report by Rico Morneau:

The Defi Sportif is Canada’s first race of the year. We never know what to expect, riders or weather wise LOL.  I can say this one was pretty exiting.  Most riders were making new personal best and the weather was up and down.

Saturday TT was nice and sunny with a big show up of riders. It was fast and everyone trying to beat there fast time.

Sunday road race was a different picture, cold and wet.  Can I say the group was much smaller. LOL… 5 degrees, pouring rain.  The brave took the start line giving all their best. Lap after lap running through the huge puddles of water, I even froze a tip of one of my fingers! Great gob everyone. Thanks to Handcycling Club of Canada team for bringing down a big amount of riders making the event a success.  *

Race Report by Anthony Lue:

As I pulled up to the parking lot and seen the competition getting ready, I knew the season had officially started! Extremely excited I jumped out of the truck into my chair and started getting my bike together. This being my 3rd start ever I was a bit nervous but it was probably because I knew I was about to hit speeds upwards of 50km/h.

5…4…3…2…1…GO!  And we were off!  I went out first but was quickly passed by a few of the veterans. It was time to ride my race. 20:36 later I crossed the finish line, smashing last years time by 4 minutes! I was pleased with my race and it was amazing to be on Yonge St. again with a bunch of handcycles ripping up the pavement. I can’t wait for the next race!
