On Sunday, Team Canada concluded its 11-day racing campaign at the 2023 super worlds in Glasgow. The inaugural event saw athletes across the globe compete in all disciplines of cycling, save for cyclocross.
Canada was entered in the handcycling (H) team relay race. The squad consisted of Alexander Hyndman (H3) from Blenheim, Ont., Joey Desjardins (H3) from Hawkesbury, Ont., and Matthew Kinnie (H2) from Riverview, N.B. They combined their efforts for a seventh-place finish, crossing the line 2:23 behind the victorious French team.
The final race of the day was the elite and u-23 women’s road race. The 154.1km event took place on the Glasgow finishing circuits. Olivia Baril of Rouyn-Noranda was top finisher in 32nd, with Alison Jackson coming in 33rd and Simone Boilard in 34th.
The winner of the race was Lotte Kopecky, taking a big victory in a very successful week for her. The Belgian already won gold medals in the points and elimination races.
Tom Pidcock took an impressive win in the XCO, after the other favourite Mathieu van der Poel crashed out early.
Pauline Ferrand-Prevot took home another rainbow jersey, dominating the race. It was her second win of the week.
