Canmore Canada Cup Info
We have had a number of requests for clarification on the Canmore Canada Cup, specifically the lack of a Downhill event. Lisa Davey at the CCA was able to clear up this matter:
"The Canada Cup at Canmore will only be a cross-country Canada Cup. Due to the difficulties encountered, with the downhill, at this site it has only been awarded a cross-country. The riders will have the best 4 races count towards their overall standing (they must start at Silver Star to be included in the overall standing)."

TO THE EDITOR
Before you post a press release from a cycling group, we suggest that you review a little bit more thoroughly its accuracy. This commentary follows our reading of the Victoria Training Center press release about the coming annual awards ceremony (98.11.19).
In this text, it is written that << The CCSD National Cycling Centre is the training headquarters for the Canadian National Cycling Team... >>.
We would like to remind that the cycling high performance world does not revolve around a single center in Canada since there are two national/regional training centers recognized and supported by the Canadian Cycling Association, one in Victoria (BC) and the other one in Bromont (QC).
This being said, we congratulate the organizers of the Victoria awards ceremony for their initiative and wish them success in 1998.
