Career Best Finish for Horsfield at Canmore Canada Cup

IslandStats.com
Robin Horsfield competed at the final Canada Cup in Canmore, Alberta.

Though the field was reduced due to COVID-19 and the race's position late in the calendar the majority of Canada's top riders were in attendance, including National Champion and Oympian Leandre Bouchard.

Horsfield finished with a career best 14th place on the challenging Rocky Mountain course. Race entry was limited to Canada's Elite Riders.

"Horsfield has worked throughout this season to gain strength at International level starts" notes coach Mark Brown. "Today's race was an example of him taking another step in that development. There is still work to do, but the progress that Robin is making is undeniable.

Horsfield was in 6th position at the top of the first climb - ultimately he faded but he was within sight of the leaders for the longest we've seen from him since his World Cup debut in 2018 at Mont Saint Anne."

"I was pleased with my start today as well as the opportunity to compete alongside riders we typically only see on TV," said Horsfield. "I have some midterm exams this week at school and then I will start preparing to represent Bermuda later this year."

"Horsfield is on track with his long-range plan, despite COVID-19," continues Brown. "This year saw him consistently among the top riders at provincial level races and he is dominating domestic races. It is always a slow and steady climb but we will transition focus, next year, to the national level series."

Horsfield finished the season ranked 4th in Ontario. National rankings are still being tabulated following the Canmore race.

BBA Hoping to Finish Road Race Season 2021

IslandStats.com
The Bermuda Bicycle Association’s (BBA) calendar had two more Road events for 2021, being the Criterium championships and the Presidents Cup.

The Bermuda Bicycle Association are currently attempting to schedule both of these while recognizing that the current Covid restrictions would make them difficult to hold.

Gatherings are limited to 20 individuals which would make a large race like the Presidents Cup virtually impossible.

Officials of the BBA anticipate things improving in the next month to the point of being able to get these events done before the end of the current year.

Dunne Reflects on Cyclist Performances at the UCI Worlds

IslandStats.com
Bermuda Bicycle Association President Peter Dunne has released a statement following the Bermuda rider's performance at the UCI World Championships.

Dunne wrote, “Bermuda closed out its racing at the UCI Road World Championships in Belgium yesterday with the Junior Men and Under23 Men races, and our cyclists performed beyond expectations. While their finishing places were distant from the race winners, our team was impressively strong and attracted quite a bit of attention, both from the roadside fans and the television crew. Maybe it was the brilliant pink and blue team kit that stood out but probably it was the fearless approach of our guys who were competing against the best in the world.

For our Under 23 and Junior cyclists to be racing against this level of competition and to get through the full race is an amazing accomplishment. The fact that we have these 5 riders capable of these results is reflective of where Bermuda cycling is at this point. The depth of commitment required by the athletes to prepare for the event and get to this level is incredibly impressive and they will all leave Belgium with greater confidence in their abilities. Each of them has accomplished so much this week and for this, they should be extremely proud. From the BBA leadership, our Board and Executive Committee extend their warmest congratulations to the team and look forward to the next opportunity for them to represent the country”.
