PCC Trained Athletes Podium at the Tour de White Rock

July 19, 2010

Pacific Cycling Centre trained athletes made the podium at the 31st annual Tour de White Rock race which took place July 16-18 as part of BC Superweek.

Over 150 elite cyclists from around the world participate in this renowned cycling competition, which includes a gruelling hill climb, a short-circuit speed race and a 130 km endurance road race.

In the stage two (1 km short-circuit course) criterium, Svein Tuft (Garmin-Transitions) lapped the field in a solo effort to finish first, followed by Jamie Sparling (Total Restoration) in second ahead of Christian Meier (Garmin-Transitions).

Tuft won the road race and finished 1st overall. Read his thoughts on the race here

In stage two on the women’s side, PCC athlete Andrea Bunnin finished second in a field consisting of the best Canadian women cyclists including national criterium and road champions and several pro teams. Fellow PCC athlete Shailie Sanbrooks finished in 4th place.

Bunnin relocated from Saskatchewan and moved to Victoria to take advantage of the climate and training under PCC head coach, Houshang Amiri. Victoria is considered the top city in Canada for training and support in cycling.

“Andrea is a very determined and hardworking young woman,” says Amiri. “She sets a goal, works hard to achieve it, and I’m proud of her result.”
