Cheyne crowned champion

A Kelowna cyclist rode to top spot in the Tour de White Rock presented by Landmark Premiere Properties Westminster Savings.

Jordan Cheyne, riding for Elevate-KHS Pro Cycling, has added his name to those engraved on the Hans Steida Memorial Trophy. Cheyne dominated the 2019 edition of the road race, breaking away from a group of seven with just over 40 kilometres left. “I went up the climb with four to go and I didn’t really attack hard, but I saw a gap open up and I just committed to it. This circuit is so hard that it’s almost easier to go on your own sometimes,” the 27-year-old said.

The Elevate-KHS team was prominent all through BC Superweek, including several podiums for Samuel Bassetti along with Ulises Castillo Soto. “It’s been a hard week, I’ve done three or four of the crits, but my teammates were making all the money for me, so it was my turn today,” said Cheyne. “We got a chance - it was down to three of us in the break and my best chance was a long-range attack so that’s what I did. It was early, but if you can roll a break the whole day here, I think it’s easier because there’s no accelerations on all these climbs – it adds up in a hurry in the field. You might have to hit the wind a bit more, but I prefer to be up the road.”

In second was German rider Christopher Hatz followed by Ed Walsh of Halifax, Nova Scotia, riding for X-Speed United Continental.

On the women's side, Dutch rider Nina Kessler, took top spot followed by Marie-Soleil Blais of Quebec and Megan Rathwell rounded out the top three.
