Robin Horsefield finished second at the Ontario Cup Cross Country Mountain Bike Race in Peterborough, Ontario.

“This course was the longest course of the year with the senior elite men racing a full two hours,” said a spokesperson. “As was his custom, Horsefield led the early stages of the race. Losing contact with Miller and being passed by two Peterborough residents who were clearly enjoying the chance to ride their home track, long-time rival John Slaughter was a few minutes later on lap two. I passed Horsefield at the start.”

“At this point, I was pretty depressed,” explains Horsfield. “But I’ve shown myself time and time again throughout this season that the only way to really lose a race is to quit.”

Horsefield worked particularly hard on the uphills of the track, moving up from fifth to third on his fifth and final lap. On the final hill, Horsefield overtook rival John his Slaughter with him two kilometers from goal.

This is the second time Horsefield has finished on the podium at the Ontario Cup, his last being a second place finish in 2019 before the pandemic.

The result keeps Horsefield third in the rankings in Ontario with one race left in the Ontario Cup Series. His first five rankings of the series will remain in dispute leading up to this final race, which also serves as the state championship.

The race is scheduled for Sunday, August 28th in Midland, Ontario.
