RCMP are seaching for a person who shot a 59-year-old Burnaby man who was participating in a randonneur road cycling event near Spencers Bridge early Sunday morning.

Lytton RCMP said the cyclist was cycling on Highway 1 just south of Spences Bridge at around 1 a.m. PT when someone opened fire, hitting  the man in upper body.

Police believe the unknown assailant then fled in a pickup truck.

Police said the cyclist was quickly rushed to local hospital where he remained in stable condition.

Police are urging anyone who may have seen anything to contact RCMP.

The man was part of the Cache Creek 600, a 600-kilometre two-day cycling marathon from Pitt Meadows to Cache Creek and back.

Riders left Pitt Meadows Saturday morning for the 300-kilometre ride through Mission, Agassiz, and up the Fraser Canyon through Spences Bridge to the turn-around point in Cache Creek.
