Season of gold and silver comes to a close for Rossland senior cyclist

Stephen Langley capped off 2018 with medals at World Seniors Games in Utah

A Rossland senior has wrapped up his bike racing season with three gold and two bronze medals at the World Senior Games in St. George, Utah.

Stephen Langley, a Rossland resident since 2006, finished his road and mountain biking season by winning his age group in the hill climb, downhill and cross-country events in the expert mountain bike division.

His time in the downhill set a new age-group record for the games. Earlier in the games, he took bronze medals in the elite division of his age group in the road hill climb and road race, and took a fourth in the time trial.

The Huntsman World Senior Games is the largest annual multi-sport event in the world for athletes age 50 and better. The Games offers 30 different sports and welcomes athletes from all around the world to Utah in October to challenge themselves and the world.

Langley’s showing at the Games weren’t his only wins this summer.

At the B.C. Senior Games in September, he took golds in the hill climb and time trial events and silver in the road race.

Earlier in the session he won his age group at the Penticton Gran Fondo, riding 100 miles (162 kilometres) in under five hours. At the Spokane Lilac Century he finished second in the 100-mile event behind fellow Rossland resident Seth Bitting.
