Raphael Gagne won the men's mountain bike gold medal at the Pan Am Games on Sunday.
Shortly after winning the women's mountain bike event at the Pan Am Games, Canadian rider Emily Batty said her immediate family and their spouses were at the race, along with distant relatives, as well as “relatives I had no idea were coming.”
Emily Batty and Catharine Pendrel added two more medals to Canada's Pan Am Games haul on Sunday, winning gold and silver, respectively in women's mountain bike.
