Centurion Blue Mountain on TSN and TSN2

Just saw this posted on the Centurion site and thought I'd share:

 

Air dates have been announced for the 2011 Subaru Centurion Canada one-hour television show!

Here is the official word:

More cycling comes to TSN. Over 3,500 participants came to the Town of The Blue Mountains and the Niagara Escarpment to compete in the annual Subaru Centurion Canada event.

The Timex Vertical Challenge featured head to head knockout racing up the Niagara Escarpment, and after the gruelling climb it was a sprint for the win. We follow participants throughout the weekend including 80 year old Robert Drinkwater’s goal to complete the 100 mile race and become the world’s oldest Centurion. And we join former NHL player’s Pat Lafontaine and Steve Webb on a 550 mile ride to bring hope to those in need.

Subaru Centurion Canada airings on TSN and TSN2 are subject to change. Please check your local listings.

TSN2   Tuesday, November 1st at 6:30pm eastern/3:30pm Pacific

TSN     Thursday November 3rd at 2pm eastern/11am Pacific

TSN2   Saturday, November 5th at 8:00pm eastern/5:00pm Pacific

TSN     Tuesday November 8th at midnight/9pm Pacific


 

Will have to try and watch for some BCC jerseys in there!

Cheers

I saw some of this show a few nights ago.   Worth watching especially if you did the ride.

 The climb up Scenic Caves road was featured and those guys were amazing.   The winners needed to ride a few heats to qualify for the final. The hill starts at 10%, middle section is 15% grade, the fast guys were able to accelerate and attack even on the steepest spots!  Time to ascend around 14 minutes.

For perspective, take the steepest part of Brimley hill and ride that for 14 minutes instead of the 2 minutes it takes us!

Mr Drinkwater is a great inspiration 80 yrs old, 100mile in around 7 hrs!
