The beginning of spring comes with another P2A. This honest, brutal and utterly painful event seems to be in our blood. Someone associated with the different incarnations of our club has participated in Paris-Ancaster's every year since 2004. This year we had ChrissyB and Drew racing the full 70km distance while Adam, Cam, JonH and Marty raced the much more humane 40km. No matter what, the climb is still hard. For 12 years, I've gotten up that climb without having to walk, an achievement I've always been proud of. Well, this year my streak came to an end as the spasm's in my legs forced me off my machine. Hill 1, Marty 0. See you next year.
