Canadians Mike Garrigan, Kyle Douglas, Tara Ross and Greg Reain have all qualified and are planning on attending the Cyclo-cross World Championships in Hooglede-Gits, Belgium on January 27-28, 2007.
As the Canadian Cycling Association doesn't provide any funding for the National Cyclo-Cross Team, riders must cover their own airfare, accomodations, meals, equipment expenses and even their national team jerseys. We have seen the commitment that it has taken for these riders to qualify and get there, and we are hoping that we can help them along by taking some of the financial burden off of their shoulders, allowing them to focus on putting in a stalwart performance, representing Canada at the Cross Worlds.
We're hoping that you will join us in supporting these riders by dropping a donation off via Paypal, via our website - http://www.cyclocrossontario/fccr or contact us to find any other way to pass along a payment. We have a pretty short time line to raise funds for this year and hope you can contribute today. Be assured there are no administration fees lumped in and all of your money will get directly to the athletes.
