Team Mariposa has had a solid racing season thus far with a good effort the Canadian National Cyclocross Championships as well as a couple of victories and several Ontario Cup podium finishes.
This past weekend, we had several team members competing at the Ontario Provincial Cyclocross Championships and the team shared a lot of success with Sjaan Gerth winning the elite race, Ashlin Barry finishing 2nd place in the U13 race and Jack Ciotlos finishing 4th in the Junior race.
Here are few photos and videos from a fun weekend of racing.
