Racers roll through Delta

Annual Tour de Delta takes bike racing to the streets of North Delta, Ladner and Tsawwassen

White Spot Road Race winner Steve Fisher crosses the line in the men's competition Sunday (July 8) in Tsawwassen.



The annual Tour de Delta rolled into the community’s three town centres last weekend and treated cycling fans to a number of thrills over three events.

In last Friday night’s (July 6) MK Delta Criterium Friday—a 1.2 km loop around the Social Heart area in North Delta—Svein Tuft of Team Orica-Green Edge was the fastest in the men’s competition.

In the women’s race, Nicky Wangsgard of Primal/MapMyRide p/b BH Bicycles topped the podium.

When the action switched to Ladner Village July 7 for the Brenco Criterium it was Ryan Anderson of Spider Tech who crossed the finish line first in the men’s Pro Cat 1/2 race that covered 54km (60 laps).

In the Women’s Pro, Cat 1/2/3 race of 36 km (40 laps) it was Stephanie Roorda of Local Ride/Dr. Vie Superfoods in first place.

On Sunday, the focus switched to the Tsawwassen finish line and the White Spot Road Race.

Placing first in the Pro Cat 1/2 event that stretched 140 km starting in North Delta and finishing at Winskill Park, was Steve Fisher of Hagens Berman Cycling.

Meanhwile, in the women’s race that covered 88 km (11 laps of Tsawwassen), Morgan Cabot of Glotman Simpson Cycling completed the course first with a time of 2:21:16.

Finishing first overall from the three races on the men’s side was Fisher with a total of 80 points.

In the the women’s overall point total, Roorda’s 86 point was enough to capture the top spot.

Editor’s note: South Delta Leader freelance photographer Jim Kinnear caught the action from the Ladner Critreium Saturday (July 7) and White Spot Race Sunday in Tsawwassen.
