May 29/19 14:30 pm - Maggie Coles-Lyster Wins Tour of Somerville

Posted by Editoress on 05/29/19

Maggie Coles-Lyster won the prestigious Tour of Somerville on Monday, the oldest bike race in the USA. This win follows on the heels of winning the Green Jersey at the Chico Stage Race back in March and most recently, taking second place in the criterium at the Tour of the Gila while racing with Team Canada.

"I have had a much better start to this year's racing season over last year. Last year I had to battle through multiple concussions, along with the politics involved with being a competitive, female cyclist in Canada. This year my head is clear, and I am back to my competitive, winning ways," said Coles-Lyster.

Coles-Lyster, the 2017 Junior Points Race World Champion has moved to Allentown, Pennsylvania for the summer to race with her Pickle Juice Pro Cycling Team. She will train and compete in local criteriums while racing June’s UCI races at the famed Valley Preferred Cycling Center, better known as T-Town.

“This year there are five UCI race weekends for me to compete against some of the world's top track riders. This will also allow me to gain UCI points to make me eligible for up-coming World Cups," commented Coles-Lyster.

Before Coles-Lyster returns home to Maple Ridge, BC, in early July to compete in BC Superweek, she hopes to make the selection to represent Canada at the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru to be held in August 2019.
