Davide Frattini (Hudz-Subaru) went to the front in the first lap of Day 1 of the Toronto International Cyclo-cross event and never relinquished that position, with Derrick St John (Garneau Club Chaussure-Ogilvy) and Aaron Schooler (Team H&R Block) finishing 22 and 32 seconds back, respectively, to claim the other two podium steps.

In the women’s race, mountain biker Katy Curtis (CMC-Bow Cycle) used her technical skills in the course’s decisive sandpit to create a slight gap to Natasha Elliott (Garneau Club Chaussure-Ogilvy) and held a four-second margin to the line for the win. Pepper Harlton (Juventus) finished third.
