This past weekend was a big one for the freshly-minted Canadian National Champions. Christel Ferrier-Bruneau (SAS Macogep Aquisio) doubled up at the SuperCross Cup and Michael van den Ham (Garneau-Easton p/b Transitions LifeCare) took home a win on Day 2 of the Major Taylor Cup. Their younger counterpart also got in on the winning action.
Canada’s Junior Men’s National Champion Tyler Clark was also at the Major Taylor Cup, and like Van den Ham, he conquered the mud to take home a win on Sunday.
Clark attends the Killington Mountain School in Vermont, where he trains for both skiing and cycling. Before winning Canadian Cyclocross Nationals at Sherbrooke, he was also a member of Team Canada’s Junior delegation for Mountain Bike Worlds in Australia.
Clark finished fourth at Pan-Ams in Louisville and then third on Day 1 at Major Taylor. He finally got his breakthrough on Sunday in the major muddy mess at the Major Taylor Cup.
