This past Sunday, 13 IRONDames showed their strength at the C50 and C100 events of Centurion Cycling’s Subaru Centurion Canada at Blue Mountain Village in Collingwood, Ontario. The event series presented by Cervelo drew over 4,000 riders across all of the weekend’s events – C25, Hill Climb, Timex Vertical Challenge, C50 and C100. With elevation gains of 3,343 ft and 5,810 ft respectively, the C50 and C100 cycling routes challenged the most serious of cyclists.
IRONDames Alex Warne and Virginia Jamieson designated their C50 and C100 races as their personal fundraising challenge for Wellspring Halton-Peel’s new Cancer Exercise Facility. With fellow IRONDame Marla Ashmore as her domestique, Alex pushed herself to the limit, completing 70 K of the C50 course, a personal best for Alex in both distance and elevation climbed! With a new bike and clip less pedals just this summer Alex is becoming a cycling enthusiast. Virginia Jamieson’s training for the C100 this summer shone through as she completed the ride in 7:08:21.5 with a 3-mile KOM time of 19:08.8! We are sure to see Alex and Virginia back next year at Centurion Canada!
IRONDames Maris Lush and Robyn Lavelle finished the C50 race on the podium! Maris placed 1st in her age group in both the C50 and KOM challenge. Robyn placed 3rd in her age group. Check out the other tremendous results of our fearless group of IRONDames who “love to climb” below:
