Robin Horsfield finished first in the Men’s 20-29 category and 17th overall out of 1074 participants in the Paris to Ancaster Race in Canada.

A spokesperson said, “As preparation for his upcoming mountain bike season, Robin Horsfield entered the Paris to Ancaster 70 km race held April 24th. Riding a mountain bike in the majority road event, Horsfield finished first in the Men’s 20-29 category and 17th overall out of 1074 participants.

“Horsfield, who recently claimed his fourth Bermuda national title following two years of Junior Championships, stated that riding in the road peloton on his mountain bike proved challenging. The 70 km course consisted of 95% terrain best suited to road bikes, and the sections that were better suited to mountain bikes were mud slides, as opposed to single track.”

Mr. Horsfield said, “I was pleased to be the main instigator of the major attack that split up the front group. Unfortunately there were only five of us who broke away and the rest of the group regained ground on us and we were reeled back in after about ten kilometers.

“I paid for this activity later in the race, but ultimately this achieved my goal as this was to be a hard training ride before my real season starts in May in Quebec at the first Canada Cup.”

The spokesperson said, “The Paris Ancaster Race is in its 28th year and is modeled after the famed Paris Roubaix race in France.”
