Kevin Shaw won the Montney Roubaix race, Sunday, in an exciting sprint with Pat Ferris. Kevin won by inches in a fast downhill sprint after a 30km effort in -14 degree temperatures. Their time was 1:08:37 hours. Gary Hilderman was third at 1:12:01.

      Larry Joice won the one lap event with a time of 30:01 and Adam Currie second at 31:05.

      The Montney Roubaix is the second in the 3 race series. The circuit featured a 2.5 km gravel hill, snow and ice for each 10 km lap.

      The winner will be decided at next week’s Two Rivers Roubaix. This 27 km circuit will be snowy and muddy demanding a fast and handy bike rider. The winner gets the ‘Roubaix Cup’.
