On Wednesday night, four cyclists took to the streets of Copper Ridge to take part in VeloNorth’s criterium race.

Criterium, or “crit” for short, is raced over a short course (roughly one kilometre) for a set amount of time.

Wednesday’s race lasted for 45 minutes, plus five laps.

In the sport women’s category, Shannon Mallory hung on to an early lead to take the win. Meanwhile Tanya Gadsby finished second, less than a lap behind Mallory.

In the Expert Men’s category, Mac Hislop and Aaron Foos were locked in a close battle for the full duration of the race.

At the end of the final five laps, Hislop pipped Foos at the line to take the win.
