B.C. cyclist claims third-best Canadian performance at Paris-Roubaix Femmes

Thanks to the efforts of Maggie Coles-Lyster, who recently competed in the Paris-Roubaix Women’s Cycling Race in France, BC continues to participate in cycling even after traveling halfway around the world.

Five Canadian racers compete in the women’s division of the historic cobbled street race.

Coles-Lyster completed the 145.5km race in 3 hours, 54 minutes and 17 seconds, the third best among Canadian women.

That was just 11 minutes and 21 seconds behind the fastest Canadian, Alison Jackson, who was the overall winner of the race, giving Canada its first-ever Paris-Roubaix women’s title.

As part of the Zaaf Cycling Team, Coles-Lyster outperformed all of her team-mates to finish 68th, with her Zaaf racer Debora Silvestri not far behind in 69th.

Here are the results of the Canadian drivers in the women’s Paris-Roubaix:

1 – Alison Jackson (Vermilion, Alberta), 03:42:56

39 – Simone Boilard (Quebec City, Quebec), 03:44:41

68 – Maggie Coles-Lyster (Maple Ridge, British Columbia), 03:54:17

OOT – Gabrielle Pilote-Fortin (Newell, Quebec), running out of time

OOT – Sara Poidevin (Canmore, Alberta), running out of time

Coles-Lyster will now prepare for her next race on April 10, which will be the Ronde de Mouscron in Belgium.
