Cross racers finish up strong

The city’s cyclocross racers wheeled their way to the finish line in fine fashion.

The Cross on the Rock cyclocross series concluded last month with the championship race Nov. 24 at Beban Park. Victoria racers won the expert race and the open women’s race, with Drew MacKenzie and Dawn Anderson taking the wins.

The best local result came from Lantzville’s Cheryl Morch, who finished second in the four-lap intermediate race. Her time of 41 minutes, 29 seconds was just one second behind winner Shelby Harlen of Victoria.

Other Nanaimo racers to do well were Bill McMillan, third among masters men, Carey Mark, fourth in the open women’s race, Normon Thibault, eighth in the expert race and Wendy Simms, 12th in the expert race.
