Distance: 155.5 kilometers

Tsawwassen, CANADA – Sunday’s White Spot | Delta Road Race served as the sole UCI race during BC Superweek. The pace started high on the 12-lap race with breakaways sneaking off shortly after the start of the opening lap.

By the third lap, a large group containing several Rally Cycling and Silber Pro Cycling riders had over a minute and was only gaining time. This threatening breakaway grew their lead to over 90 seconds. On the start of the final lap, the peloton organized and quickly started to take back time.

Up in the break, the escapees stopped cooperating and two riders took off up the road. The duo held on to contest the win while the remaining riders were swept up by the chasing peloton. In the end, Adam De Vos (Rally Cycling) outsprinted Kaler Marshall (Langlois Brown) for the win while Team Novo Nordisk’s Mehdi Benhamouda took on the bunch sprint and finished outside the top 10 in 11th position.
