Dr. Vie’s BC womens cycling team rode to victory at the Tour de WhiteRock in BC this summer. Laura Brown (multi medalist on Canadian Team Pursuit), Steph Roorda (multi medalist on Canadian Team Pursuit), Jasmin Glaesser & Jenny Lehman raced hard.
Did you know the Tour de Whiterock has been going on for ~30 years? This historical cycling race is a grueling test of endurance, strength, and attrition. Dr. Vie’s team of women tackled the steep seaside hills of the City of White Rock with Semiahmoo Bay and Mount Baker providing a picturesque backdrop as spectators lined the waterfront or watched the action from restaurants along Marine Drive
Tour de Whiterock is a hard race and Dr. Vie’s team of women dominated. The amazing women had some hiccups during Superweek with tactics and were defeated many times in sprint finishes and so forth. But when they came together as a team for the White Rock weekend, they raced their bikes as hard as they could, and found much success.
“We took 1st (Laura), 2nd (Jasmin), 3rd (Jenny) in the hill climb, 2nd (Laura) and 3rd (Jasmin) in the criterium, and 1st (Jasmin) and 2nd (Laura) in the road race. Laura won the overall and Jasmin was second”, says Laura Brown.
Great teamwork all around by Laura, Jasmin, Jenny, and Steph!,
“We are honoured and thrilled to have won it this time around,” says Laura.
“Mother Vie & I are happy to support our BC women cyclists so that they can realize their dreams. We are not a mega company with mega funds, but we are dedicated to helping youngsters and women to achieve their optimum in life,” says Dr. Vie, Founder of Dr. Vie, Inc.
