This is a big race with 500 athletes showing up in 11 categories. Ambrose is racing in the 50+ category with 49 other riders. After the first of three stages, Ambrose is sitting in 7th place, only 43 seconds behind the leader. The stage finished with 2 riders 31 seconds ahead of the field, while Ambrose and 39 others sprinted for 3rd place, racing for precious time bonuses given to the first 5 across the line.
Next up is the 17.6km individual time trial. Ambrose was 15th in the TT last year, and finished 8th overall at the end of the three stage race. He hits the road at 12:05 this afternoon, trying to smash last year’s time of 26:01.28 and put himself in a good position to challenge the top riders in the mountains tomorrow.
The Eagle Eye on Green Challenge wrapped up today. Our friends at 103.5FM The Eagle pimped the heck out of this contest and we all had a great time playing along for the month of August. Thanks to superstar on-air personality, Nicole Sullivan and her daughter Davis for making the huge commitment and sticking to it through wind, rain, blazing heat, dripping ice cream and heavy traffic.
The winner of the Norco bike worth over $600 is Karen Hamilton. Congratulations.
Our friends at 103.5FM The Eagle, are promoting eco-friendly activities all this month. Leading the way is their very bubbly on-air personality, Nicole Sullivan. FrameWork Cycle has given Nikki everything she needs to start biking to work. For added fun, she is going to have her baby girl, Davis, on board heading for daycare, in the iBert Safe-T-Seat. We’re not sure who is more excited, but Davis came in to pick out her helmet and hasn’t taken it off since. Check out Nikki’s blog.
