November 6/09 10:20 am - Canadian Team Arrives at Para-cycling Track Worlds
Posted by Editoress on 11/6/09
The Canadian Para-cycling Worlds Track Team has arrived in Manchester, UK to compete at the 2009 Para-cycling Track World Championships starting today, and running through Sunday, November 8th.
The team arrived a week early in Newport, to fine-tune their speed work, practiced their start and various technical skills. They 've had time to settle in, receive daily physiotherapy treatment and get the necessary mechanical support. The B & VI (Blind & Visually Impaired) were particularly pleased to receive brand new Dolan Track Tandems, and were extremely delighted about the compact geometry of the frames. It was also a good opportunity to meet Team Doctor, Dr. Susan Labrecque.
The team has now been training for three days on the Manchester track and have posted promising times, boosting their motivation and confidence.
Competition starts today with the LC's Men category pursuit qualifying rounds.
