The festivities of the Tour de White Rock continued on until Sunday, with the Men’s Road Race starting at 9 a.m. and the Women’s at 9:05. The heat of the weekend continued on as well, and I am sure as the Men approached their 130 Kilometre mark, and the Women approached there 80 KM mark, many had pulled out and were searching for some cool Gelato on Marine Drive.
On the Men’s side, Canadian (Watson Lake, Yukon and now, North Vancouver), and two time Olympian, Zach Bell pulled out an impressive +4 minute victory:

On the Women’s side, team Novartis continued to dominate, as Kathryn Donovan of the USA (Los Angeles) pulled off almost a +4 minute victory as well. It was the first time that team Novartus didn’t sweep the podium over the course of the weekend.
