|The riders were led off the line by an impressive group of celebrity athletes including Olympic gold medalists Simon Whitfield and Adam Van Koeverden as well as NHL greats Bob Nystrom, Mike Richter and Scott Thornton. They, along with hundreds of other athletes, were struck by the scenic course, “We had such a good time, it is so beautiful here – I’ll be back next year” commented Nystrom after finishing second in his age-group in the 50-mile race.|
The Centurion team has committed to continuing the charitable work that was initiated in 2001 under their North America Sports banner and, to that end, has partnered with the Ontario Cycling Association to donate racing bikes to aspiring young riders. On a local level, bikes will be donated to local young people through the regional Outreach program, touching communities touched by the race courses.
