Rain makes for a long 70km opener

A constant rain made the first stage of Crank The Shield extra challenging, but did not succeed in dampening rider's spirits. Racers awoke to an absence of sunshine and sprinkling of rain, which grew to a consistent stream as the start of stage 1 approached. Faced with a challenging 70 kilometers of hydro cut, gravel roads and singletrack, all 200 riders put on a brave face and ventured out into the Haliburton wilderness. In the end, the course received rave reviews from pros and recreational riders alike.

The Scott-3Rox team of Geoff Kabush, Derek Zandstra, Douglas and Jette were joined by Norco young gun L'Esperance to form the lead pack early on in the stage. Kabush and Zandstra were able to work together to drop young L'Esperance with Zandstra edging out Kabush for the win.

When asked about today's conditions, Zandstra said, "Twenty kilometers in, we knew it was going to be a long day. It was epic out there."

The Cyclery's Tricia Spooner edged out Cayley Brooks (Trek Canada) for the fastest female of the day.

In the team categories, Andrew Watson and Hayley Smith (Norco Factory) took the mixed title and Jette and Douglas (Scott-3Rox) dominated the men's tag team.
