- June 30 - After Thursday’s exciting .34 seconds behind first place time trial finish to secure second place for Shawna Ryan and her pilot Audrey Lemieux, everyone was excited to see how the road race would turn out. Would the new comers be able to repeat that kind of performance against World and Canadian Champions Robbi Weldon and Lynne Bessette or was it just luck. The road race went out hard and the first attack came 2 kilometers into the race. The attacks kept on coming until there were only had 3 teams at the front of the race at the second lap turn around. The teams of Robbi Weldon/ Lynne Bessette and Shawna Ryan/ Audrey Lemieux tried on numerous occasions to drop the other teams. Shawna Ryan and Audrey Lemieux were not going to go quietly. At the turn around for lap three only Robbie Weldon/Lynne Bessette and Shawna Ryan/Audrey Lemieux were left.
The attacks and counter attacks continued. Everyone was expecting a sprint finish. Just before the final turn around with 7.5 km to go, Robbi and Lynne attacked on the hill. Shawna and Audrey immediately responded with such force that they broke the tandem drive chain. That allowed Robbi and Lynne to get clear for the Canadian Championship win. Fortunately the “chain incident” happened right in front of Cycling Canada Coach Sebastien Travers. He put a call out to neutral service to bring Shawna and Audrey a chain connecting link. They responded and got the unhappy ladies back on the road after a 5 minute delay.
They had such a big lead on the other competitors that they were still able to power to the finish line for the silver medal position. Shawna and Audrey both felt strong and that they had what it would take to win a potential sprint finish. Even though that didn’t happen for them, they learned something very valuable. They can compete with some of the world’s premier tandem teams. Though they are a new team and have a lot to learn they have the potential to become a very competitive tandem team at the National and World level

|The Saskatchewan Cycling Association
Our Vision Statement … "The Saskatchewan Cycling Association is the leader in recreational and competitive cycling, cycling safety, and cycling as a lifelong activity for all Saskatchewan people."
Our Mission Statement … "The Saskatchewan Cycling Association exists to promote and enhance the Saskatchewan cycling experience while recognizing its benefits to the individual and society."
The SCA promotes and organizes almost every type of cycling event you can think of. If you are a recreational cyclist or someone who takes the sport a little more seriously there is something to fit your tastes in the province.
Several well established bicycle recreation clubs exist in Saskatchewan. These clubs are dedicated to the promotion of the sport of recreational cycling and bicycle touring. They have regularly planned city, country and off-road rides.
The SCA continues to promote safe cycling through the Canadian Cycling Association's Can-Bike Program and by the delivery of safe cycling presentations at Saskatchewan schools.
Saskatchewan has one of the newest complete racing programs in the country. The SCA categorizes competitive racers by ability and age for road racing, and ability level for mountain bike racing. Races are offered at club, in-province and out of province levels. All levels of racing ability are welcome at the club rides and for provincial races skills include from the beginner to the expert.
Randonneuring or marathon cycling is a form of recreational touring and competitive cycling. Cyclists travel distances of 200 to 1000 kilometers against the clock. On the world circuit, the yearly Brevet series is a warm up to the pinnacle event - Paris-Brest-Paris - a 1,200 km event in France that attracts over 4000 cyclists every 4 years
