Monday, September 7 2009 - Results from World Champs 2009!
Full results:
http://www.wmrc2009.org/results/

Here are the Canadian results and some comments:

Women (69 finishers, 14 teams)
13 147 CANADA
46 0.51.19 9 Sylvia CORBETT
47 0.51.50 10 Amy GOLUMBIA
54 0.52.43 11 Jessalyn O'DONNELL
63 0.56.52 12 Emily SOLSBERG

Amy's finish is an improvement on 61st in 2006. Syl's is better than her 73rd in 2004. Jess made a great debut, and Emily's finish was probably similar to last year's. The women's team result was not great, but considering all the women ran as well as or better than their previous outings, and one was a first-timer, this is still a step in the right direction. We need to get more repeat customers on the women's side. Amy and Syl and a good example of what happens when you go back for more.

Men (138 finishers, 24 teams)
11 254 CANADA
51 1.02.13 14 Joel BOURGEOIS
55 1.02.38 15 Jason TERAUCHI-LOUTITT
64 1.03.08 17 Kris SWANSON
84 1.04.35 13 Adrian LAMBERT
95 1.06.27 16 Edward MCCARTHY
117 1.11.34 18 Trevor CALDWELL

11th out of 24 teams, this is the best team score Canada has ever had. We finished in the top half of teams at probably the most competitive up/down WMRC we've seen. This is very good.

Lambert has admitted to not being in as good shape as he was the last up/down race, but he still toughed it out for the team. Bourgeois is of course a classy international veteran. His race report notes with respect the toughness of the course and he says the level of competition is only slightly below World Cross. Jason TL was 31/105 in 2005, so a smaller field. This 55th place is solid. Swanson improved on last year's 73rd, though perhaps he could do better as downhill is more his thing. I have yet to hear from him how he felt about it.

Junior men (68 finishers)
66 82 Gord MINAKER CAN 93 0.50.41 66 + 12.15

I know Gord is disappointed with his result, but as a junior, it is tough to make the jump. The guys on the senior team have a lot more international experience. He took it well though, and has vowed to return.

Here is the history: (note that odd numbered years are up/down, while even numbered years are up only)

2005 14/17 12/15 (smaller field because it was in NZ)
