Local junior cyclist Andrew Grant recently travelled to Dieppe, New Brunswick with the BC Provincial track team for the Canadian National Track Cycling Championships.

Grant, 17, won a bronze medal in the U19 Matched Sprint and later teamed up with Vancouver’s Adam Reddy and Aidan Caves to win a silver medal in the Team Sprint.

Grant has had a great season, winning the Provincial Sprint title with additional medals in Team Sprint and Keirin, and also placing well at other track races throughout the season.


“Thank you to everyone who made this possible: Cycling BC, Mid Island Velo Association, Simon’s Cycles, PacificSport, and coaches Houshang Amiri and Amara Edwards,” a spokesperson for Grant said.
