Ewart second, de Vos 17th at nationals

Annie Ewar and Adam de Vos crack top-10 at under-23 Canadian Road Championships in Quebec

Central Saanich product Annie Ewart, 18, rode into second place and Oak Bay’s Adam de Vos, 18, was ninth in the women’s and men’s under-23 Canadian Road Championships in Lac-Megantic, Que.

It’s an impressive pair of results for the teenagers, who both raced with the nation’s best, part of the Canadian Cycling Association sanctioned event, June 21 to 24.

Ewart was the fifth overall among elite Canadian women, four back of Olympic-bound Clara Hughes. De Vos was 17th overall among the elite men, which was won by Tour de France veteran Svein Tuft, who is 17 years de Vos’ major.

Ewart, a Stelly’s secondary school graduate, went pro in late 2011 with team Optum Pro Cycling/Kelly Benefit Strategies out of U.S.A. and has been having a successful year since. This year Ewart was selected by the Canadian national team to compete in the International Cycling Union-sanctioned women’s cycling road and time trial races in Gatineau, Que.

De Vos recently finished second in the elite men’s category of the Bastion Square Grand Prix and was third overall among the elite men in that weekend’s general classification of the Robert Cameron Law series.
