Maggie Coles-Lyster Belgium Bound for World Cyclocross Championships

There was no time off during the Christmas holidays for Maggie Coles-Lyster. The 16-year old Maple Ridge native and competitive cyclist spent her holidays training in preparation for the upcoming World Cyclocross Championships on January 30, 2016 in Zolder, Belgium.

Maggie qualified for the Canadian team to compete at the World Championships by winning a bronze medal at the Canadian National Cyclocross Championship back in October in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Since then, she has been honing her cyclocross skills and finished off the season strong with three consecutive victories including taking the BC Elite Women’s Cyclocross Championship.

“I am excited about racing against the world’s best under 23-year old women in my first European bike race. I am also looking forward to the experience of racing at an event in a cycling crazy culture that can draws crowds upwards of 50,000,” exclaims Maggie.
