After three days of racing, Team London #1 leads the way in the A-Division standings with 61 points over second-place Team Niagara trailing by eight. There’s a total of six teams in the A-Division competing in 30-minute Madisons along with a 15-minute sprint, a miss and out and scratch races.
Team London #1 consists of headliner Kitchener’s Ryan Aitcheson, who has spent the last 24 months racing for Panther Racing in the United States. 14-year-old Cam Mason, from London, made his debut at the six-day race by joining Aitcheson on the team.
At the halfway point for the B-Division, Conrad Mrowiec leads with 57 points, sitting safely ahead of Candice Vermeulen with 36.
