A Study in Contrasts – 2005
The two days of racing could not have been more different. Saturday’s blizzard was followed by sun-baked 60 degree Sunday.
On Saturday the cyclocross husband/wife power duo of Tim Johnson & Lyne Bessette were victorious in the elite Men’s & Women’s races. On what he considers his home course, Johnson took the lead from lap 1 and was never seen again finishing almost two minutes ahead of second place. Bessette recovered from a first lap fall and by the third lap managed to gap her competition.
Sunday’s conditions couldn’t have been more different. With sunny skies and temps in the 60′s, Ryan Trebon who had dropped out of Saturday’s race, took the hole shot and stayed away the rest of the race. Showing that she can do well no matter the course conditions, Lyne Bessette took Sunday’s event for the repeat by taking the lead in the first lap and never letting up.
