Kamloops Canada Cup – Alberta’s Heemskerk 3rd!

A handful of Alberta MTB racers braved the elements and competed in the Kamloops Canada Cup this past Sunday.  Racers had to contend with 40+ degree heat and lung burning dust.

Edmonton’s Tim Heemskerk (United Cycle) finished on the podium in 3rd spot today at the 4th stop on the Canada Cup circuit. It was a last minute decision for Heemskerk to attend this race however it turns out that it was worth the 8 hr drive to Kamloops.

Justin Middleton (Team Alberta / Juventus) matched Heemskerk’s performance by placing 3rd in the Junior Men’s race as well.

The Hardcore duo of Steve Martins & Mike Blennerhasset ripped up the Master 30-39 category by going 1st & 2nd respectively.

Ty Andrews (Team Alberta) finished a strong 3rd in a deep U17 category.

And rounding out the day of Alberta rider podiums was Kelly Hall (Team Alberta) taking the win in the women’s U17 category.

Congratulations to all AB riders who found success on the Canada Cup circuit this past weekend.
