Location: Dufferin Forest
This past weekend was the Sausage Suit ITT, both for the 15km and the 30km races were held by Substance projects at Dufferin Forest. Like always Dan put on a great event running all the normal trails that we are use to running!
In the 15km race we had Jenny, Karen, Ralph and Wendy supporting Team Van Go. From all the stories at the end of the race, everyone seemed to have a great time. Jenny was able to Podium for team van go, grabbing the 3rd spot in Womens open class.
At 1pm, the 30km race had a fair amount of Team van goers… Tyler, Johnny, Bernie, Jeff, Ian, Mike, Chris, Don, and Dave competed in the Open Men, and Men 40+ categories….
Johnny and Tyler both had the speakers mounted providing some good tunes for people to listen too!
The first lap temperatures were warm, and down Ken’s and Steve’s trail the heat really hit you… most people went out like jack rabbits…
The idea of having a 1min interval between riders is great as for the most part you don’t see or pass any people and have the singletrack all to yourself… hence the music is a great feature!!!
At the end of the day, team van go had 2 spots on the podium in the men 40+… Johnny came away with a 2nd place finish and Jeff 3rd….
Need to give a big thanks to everyone who stuck around for the 30km! Karen, Emily, Julie, Colin, Ralph, Wendy, Chrissy, Christine, and the Coulter!
Also, after the event thank you to Johnny, Jeff, Chrissy and Karen for supplying the Sausage and French Fries… They were a massive hit for everyone! Definitely hit the spot after the race for sure!!!
A great day overall for everyone!!
Thanks again to Dan and Substance projects for the great day as always!!
