First Time for Everything – Canadian National Champion in Elite.

Home course, home crowd, what a race!!  I can say I am pretty happy to win my first Elite Women’s National Champion title on home turf in Southern Ontario, Canada. Definitely felt a little frustrated with how the Sudbury Canada Cup went last weekend after flatting out of contention on lap 1 plus, this was also a major goal in my season.

I came prepared to make the most of the 5 laps and I hit the throttle from the word go never looking back until I crossed that finish line.  I am really happy with my team Trek Factory Racing, my coaching (WFP) and there is always a major collaborative effort behind the scenes on all levels to achieve today’s result.  Next up ANDORRA World Cup but this time in a white kit!  Thank you everyone for you amazing support!

Enjoy the pictures, Emily.
