Jordan Cheyne took more than two minutes off the Mount Revelstoke Steamer hill climb record in the return of the race on Sunday.

Cheyne, 23, an up-and-coming pro cyclist who lives in Kelowna, conquered the 26-kilometre climb in 1:06:59 — beating the old record of 1:09:13 set by David Gonda in 2012.

The Steamer returned after a one-year hiatus, with 43 road riders powering their way up the winding climb to the summit of Mount Revelstoke more than 1,400 metres above the start line.

Olav Stana, 59, won the men’s 40+ category in a time of 1:13:04 — good for second overall. Marg Fedyna was the top woman, finishing in a time of 1:32:33.

43 cyclists took part in the Steamer, which is organized by Flowt Bikes.
