    Anika TODD (Team TIBCO-SVB) leads

    News that the PoCo Grand Prix cycling race will be held Friday July 15 is being touted as a major boost for the new event.

    Port Coquitlam was selected last fall as one of the sites for BC Superweek, Canada’s largest professional road cycling series, which takes place each July in five Metro Vancouver cities. The PoCo Grand Prix was originally scheduled to be held on a Tuesday in downtown Port Coquitlam. As a result of joint efforts between the City and BC Superweek to enhance the series, the date has been moved to Friday.

  • Vancouver’s Garrett Mcleod wins Peace Arch News Road Race at Beverley by Cressey Presents Tour de White Rock

    TdWRRR15 (454)-2

    With temperatures hovering near 30 degrees, the 36thannual Peace Arch News Road Race proved to be as gruelling as ever for the more than 100 riders who took to the streets of White Rock for one of North America’s most historic and prestigious races.

    With two laps to go, Vancouver’s Garrett McLeod, who’s originally from Wolfville, Nova Scotia, and his H&R Block Pro Cycling teammate Adam de Vos of Victoria each took turns attacking and it was McLeod coming away ahead of the rest of the field. Even then though, he wasn’t sure he’d be able to maintain the lead – but he did, and won the race after finishing third a year ago.

  • Shelley Olds Caps a Memorable BC Superweek with Third Straight Win & Eighth Straight Podium Finish

    Shelley OLDS  (Ale-Cipollini) wins the 2015 Tour de White Rock Road Race ahead of Sara BERGEN (Trek Red Truck Racing p/b Mosaic Homes)

    Shelley Olds came to Metro Vancouver to ride BC Superweek as training and preparation for La Course by Le Tour de France next week in Paris, but somewhere along the way, the motivation became even more than that. As the 34-year-old rode without any teammates, cleaned up prime after prime, and found herself on the podium at race after race, the motivation also became the chance to make history at Canada’s biggest professional road cycling series.

    And make history she did as the Team Ale-Cipollini rider completed one of the most dominating performances ever at BC Superweek with a win in the 36th edition of Sunday’s Peace Arch News Road Race as part of the Beverley by Cressey Tour de White Rock. Olds and Vancouver’s Sara Bergen, who is riding for Trek Red Truck p/b Mosaic Homes, broke away from the pack with three laps to go and built a 90 second gap.

  • Ottawa’s Matteo Dal-Cin wins Choices Markets Criterium at Beverley by Cressey Presents Tour de White Rock

    Matteo Dal-Cin has cycling in his blood – and it goes beyond a passion for the sport. His father competed for the Canadian National Team and the 24-year-old has been exposed to competitive racing for his entire life.

    The family lineage is paying off for the Silber Pro Cycling rider as he broke away from the pack in the last third of the race and held on to win the Beverley by Cressey presents Tour de White Rock Choices Markets Criterium by two seconds ahead of German rider Florenz Knauer on Friday night.

  • Shelley Olds’ Incredible Performance at BC Superweek Continues With Another Victory

    If fans watching the Choices Markets Criterium on Friday night noticed something very familiar on the podium when a women wearing a bright yellow jersey took the top step, it’s because the same scenario has played out at BC Superweek two other times in the last seven days.

    Shelley Olds (Ale-Cipollini) finished two seconds ahead of last year’s winner Alison Jackson, who isn’t wearing her usual TWENTY16 p/b Sho-Air kit, but is riding for the Canadian National Team. For Olds, it’s not only her second straight win at BC Superweek, but her seventh straight podium appearance as well.

  • American Daniel Holloway Claims Second BC Superweek win at Giro di Burnaby p/b Appia Development

    Daniel Holloway is having a pretty good week. Just last Saturday, he won the Boise Twilight Criterium in Boise, Idaho. Then on Tuesday, he found himself atop the podium again at the UBC Grand Prix p/b Mahony & Sons. A familiar scenario played out on Thursday as the man they call “Hollywood” was on top once again at the Giro di Burnaby p/b Appia Development.

    Much like Tuesday’s UBC race, Holloway, who races for Team AltoVelo-SeaSucker, sprinted ahead of Calgary’s Kris Dahl (Team SmartStop) for the win in the 45 lap, 55 kilometre circuit. It didn’t look like the race would play out that way with three laps to go, as Team Silber Pro Cycling had as many as six riders off the front. Silber tried to control at that point and even won the crowd prime with two laps to go. For Holloway and the other riders in the field, the strategy was clear.

    If there was any question about whether or not Shelley Olds is feeling the lingering effects of a broken rib suffered at Ronde van Drenthe in March, it’s been answered with her outstanding performance at BC Superweek.

    Through six events at BC Superweek, the 34-year-old from Gilroy, California riding for Ale-Cipollini out of Italy has been on the podium in every single one of them, including a win in Thursday’s Giro di Burnaby p/b Appia Development. Not only has Olds been among the top three finishers in each BC Superweek event thus far, but she’s also been a “prime machine”, picking up hundreds of dollars in cash and prizes at each race.
