Enjoying the World's in rainy Bergen.

Lot's on Friday File:

It's the first day of Autumn, my favorite season to ride. Cool, beautiful days of changing colors. It won't start that way here, this weekend will be unusually hot in the Ottawa Valley (+30s). I'll enjoy it.

Fantastic ride for Canada's up and coming junior, Simone Boilard. She is, so far, Canada's best performance of the Bergen road world championships placing 8th in the Junior Women's Road Race. Italian Elena Pironne rode the perfect race to win and now have two world champion jerseys. 

The French have won! Benoit Cosnefroy outlasted German Lennard Kamna for the exciting finish of the U23 Men's Race.

The beautiful special edition Fizik Aria R3 made
for National Champion Oliver Naesen. Sunday he'll ride in support for Greg Van Avermaet and Philippe Gilbert. I see him as my dark horse to win IF the situation presents itself.
