Heather Enders, fresh from her bronze medal performance at the Canadian Mountain Biking Championships last weekend, showed that her form is transferable to the road.

She was the fastest woman over the 17.6-kilometre course Wednesday night. In tough conditions she averaged a little more than 37 kilometres an hour —impressive in any conditions.

Another person who didn’t seem to be affected by the difficult wind was master’s rider Mary Egan. Her time of 34:10 carved more than three minutes from the last time she logged on this course.

Many of the 18 riders used this event as a tune-up for the Tour de Whitehorse, which runs July 28-30.
