Making her debut at the Canadian Road Cycling Championships, 16-year-old Laury Milette rode away with a silver medal in the junior women’s road race on June 30 in St-Georges, Que. A first-year Ottawa Bicycle Club athlete from Gatineau, Milette survived a pile-up on the 2nd of 78 kilometres to join an early breakaway of 5 riders en route to an eventual 2nd-place finish in the field of 39. The cyclist of 5 years placed 5th in the criterium and 8th in the time trial at nationals as well. Also a runner-up at the Grand Prix Cycliste de Charlevoix last month and a 5th-place finisher amongst elite women at the Preston Street Criterium, Milette will ride the Tour de l’Avenir later this summer from Aug. 8-11 in Quebec.
