Team Successful Living Aims High for 2008
Successful Living Pro Cycling Team announced today their roster for 2008 with more speed, power and experience. Impressive results from the 2007 season gained serious recognition, which included 5 NRC victories. The team plans to continue their momentum with the addition of Canadian Criterium Champion, Charles Dionne and looks to aim for the NRC title within the next two seasons.
The organization is very focused on running a detailed goal-oriented program. As encouraged by the president of Successful Living, Russ Dalbey, all team members are required to write down their goals for the season. The team will be working on planned goal setting at the training camps starting this month. "First step is to take inventory of all the goals we want to achieve as a team and as individuals and physically write them down," said Director Steve Hegg. "It's important that everyone knows each others goals to create accountability, camaraderie, and focus throughout the season."
The management is confident this will be a key factor in the achievements of the cycling team this season and beyond. "Reflecting on the success of 2007, the goals for next season are definitely attainable," stated Manager Ryan Yee.
Helping to lead the charge will be Canadian Charles Dionne, two-time San Francisco Grand Prix winner and former member of the Pro Tour team Saunier-Duval. Mr. Dionne will bring a wealth of experience and discipline to guide the team into all the major races in the US. Leading by example with goal setting, Charles has already set some solid objectives for this season including earning a spot to represent Canada in the upcoming Olympics in Beijing, China, and retain his Canadian National Criterium Champion title.
