What an outstanding performance by all team members.
Despite the hilly 7.5 km loop, the race started on a cooler note with an overcast weather forecast for most of the morning but early afternoon the heat was back on and the sun was out.
A delegation of 3 men and 3 women representing Canada at this year 100K World Championships in Sveti Martin, Croatia, was ready to compete.
