Brenco Hill Climb Launches Hot And Hectic Weekend In Tour De Delta July 21st
Provided by race organizers

Sarah Uhl of Philadelphia and Ryan Hopping of Fort McMurray, Alberta were the hottest riders on the hottest night of the year, steaming up the steep incline on Center street to win the men‚s and women‚s races in the Brenco Hill Climb, the opening event of the 6th annual Tour de Delta.

The Queen of Delta, Uhl, picked up where she left off last year when she won the Brenco Hill climb and Lehigh Cement Criterium and finished 2nd in the White Spot Road Race. The Penn State grad blazed up the hill in 1.21.18, four seconds faster than anyone else among 38 starters. Michelle Hyland of New Zealand finished 2nd and Langley‚s Marni Hambleton took 3rd.

„I had the advantage of doing this 3 times before and I have the advantage of knowing which line is best and using it and it paid off, „ said Uhl, adding „I‚m really looking forward to the rest of the weekend.‰

With 2005 men‚s winner, Tyler Farrar now racing in Europe there was no defending champion in the men‚s field of nearly 100 riders. Fort McMurray‚s Ryan Hopping was the surprise winner of the 2006 edition with a time of 1:07.20. Regina‚s Bradley Kerr was 2nd and local boy Cam Evans of Tsawassen was 3rd.

Hopping and Kerr were just the sixth group to ride up Center Street and their times held up through 44 other pairings to give Prairie provinces, Alberta and Saskatchewan respectively, the top two places in a hill climb.

„I couldn‚t watch (the rest of the riders),‰ said Hopping. „There were so many great riders in the other groupings, I didn‚t think my time would hold up. This is only the second hill climb I‚ve ever done ˆ the first being White Rock last week where I finished second. I was hoping for a top five finish in Delta, but to win it, was over the top.‰

The Tour de Delta continues with the Lehigh Cement Criterium on Saturday, July 22 at 4:30pm and concludes with the White Spot Road Race on Sunday, July 23 at 9am.
