Svein Tuft kicked off BC Superweek with an impressive win in the Tour de Delta’s MK Delta Lands Criterium last weekend. The Canadian National Time Trial champion had a commanding 45 second lead over the rest of the field.

Having recently returned from the Pro-circuit in Europe, Tuft had a sluggish start, but soon found his form and formed a break-away with six other riders. “It's just how much you want to push and really these crits, that's what it's all about, because everyone is going as hard as they can and it's just trying to go that little bit more to try and crack guys. And as soon as you can crack them, you’ve got to hurt yourself for a while because you’ve got to create that gap to make them think it’s impossible to catch you,” he told Canadian Cyclist. Tuft finished 4th overall in the Tour Omnium.

BC Superweek continues this week with the UBC Grand Prix on Tuesday July 10, the return of the Gastown Grand Prix on Wednesday July 11, Giro de Burnaby on Thursday July 12, and Tour de White Rock from July 13 – 15.
