Victoria's Gillian Carleton pedals to grand prix victory

Some of the top men and women cyclists from across Western Canada took part in Sunday’s Russ Hays Grand Prix. The route of the European-style road race took the cyclists around a one-kilometre loop of downtown Victoria’s legislature building. 

2012 Olympic Bronze Medalist and UVIC graduate Gillian Carleton captured the 35-lap elite women’s race, despite trailing with less than two laps remaining. 

Connor Toppings of Calgary, biking for team Smart Savvy, captured the men’s 40-lap race. 

The Russ Hays Grand Prix was the final event in the weekend-long Robert Cameron Law Cycling Series.
