Following his win in the Tour de Delta’s MK Delta Lands Criterium last weekend, Pacific Cycling Centre’s mentor, Svein Tuft won the second annual UBC Grand Prix on Tuesday night.

In a two-man breakaway with German Dominik Roels, Tuft knew he had a battle on his hands as he and Roels built up a minute lead for half of the 50km race. A sprint finish by Tuft sealed his victory. He finished the 50 laps around the one-kilometre UBC campus course in 1:03:23.

He told Canadian Cyclist: “He’s [Roels] been around and I know he’s a handy bike rider, the kind of guy who can really suffer and you know you get in a breakaway with him he’s going to do what he can.” The Canadian National Time Trial Champion also took home a $700 bonus collected from the crowd watching the race.
