Trailing by almost 3 minutes after the 2 km swim (28:45), Sanders hammered out a sizzling 2:01:26 ride over the 92 km course to lead by over 7 minutes going into the two loop half marathon which featured two passes by the majestic Niagara Falls. Hoping to get in some specific pace work for his upcoming Ironman Florida event, Sanders changed his mind and threw down a 1:11:35 run to claim the victory in 3:44:55 along with the title of Ontario Long Course Triathlon Champion. Toronto’s Nigel Gray took second in 4:01:19, and Orangeville’s Richard Pady finished third (4:05:00).
