Tsawwassen cyclist thriving on the track and road this summer

South Delta Secondary student was B.C.'s fastest junior rider at Canadian Road Championships in Edmonton

It was a busy productive summer on the road and track for Allison Lee-Meyer.

The Grade 12 South Delta Secondary student continues to establish herself among the top up-and-coming cyclists in the country.

At the Canadian Road Championships in Edmonton, Lee-Meyer was the fastest rider from B.C. and second among Western Canada entrants, finishing close behind a competitor from Team Alberta.

Lee-Meyer captured silver at the Provincial Road Time Trail Championships in Hatzic Valley, reaching a top speed of 71.6 km/h in the downhill section of the course (see video below). That came after winning bronze in Victoria at the Provincial Road Race Championships where she also captured a Prim Lap.

Late last month, Lee-Meyer was back in the velodrome for the Provincial Track Championships where she competed in a variety of junior and elite women races. She captured the Provincial Championship jersey and also came away with numerous medals, including gold in the individual pursuit.

She also has been participating in a number of local criterium races since the spring.
