Canada's best was put to the test when the Comox Valley Cycle Club hosted the BC Time Trial Championships on Sunday, June 8.

The event was held on the Dove Creek Course and included categories from Masters, Pro 1/2 down to Junior Under 13.

Canada's national time trial champion, Curtis Dearden, posted a fast time of 49 minutes 30 seconds for the 38km course but it was not fast enough to beat ex-pro hockey player, IRC's Jordan Landolt (who played in the Switzerland National League from 2005-08), who completed the course in 49:05, with an average speed of 46.45km/h. Trek Red Truck's Craig Ritchey finished in 49:14, the second best time of the day.

The fastest woman on the day was MIVA's Janna Gillick who completed 32km in 48:34.
