Last summer I brought you news about St. Johns-born pro-cyclist Zack Garland. The 22-year-old who grew up pedalling the climes in the city of legends is back riding full-time as the competitive cycling season gets underway. And already hes picked up a pair of wins! Racing with the HR Block-Kona cycling team at local race, or criterium, in Richmond, B.C., Garland put to use some advice hed picked up from a guest speaker at a recent team training camp. Its a good idea to keep trying to stack the break, Garland said in a recent mailing list email. With about a lap and a half to go the break was almost caught. Here, I launched an all or nothing attack with one guy able to hang on. With about 300 metres to go I just jumped on him and soloed in for the win. Teammate Shawn Goulet was close behind, finishin second. Following a respectable finishes at the three-stage Wenatchee Race in Washington 22nd in time trial, 40th in the crit portions and 26th in the road race, all within a field of 60-plus competitors Garland won a night crit in Vancouver and placed fifth in another. After teammate Garrett McLeod got caught in the pack with a lap and a half remaining, Garland went on the offensive. At this point I launched an attack where one person followed. I soon dropped them to come to the line solo. Goulet again place second. This past weekend, he competed in 127-kilometre road race and a 60-km crit, however results were not immediately available.
