December 2/09 8:56 am - Cycling BC High Performance Team – Cyclocross
Posted by Editoress on 12/2/09
The aim of the Cycling BC High Performance Team is to support the efforts of dedicated athletes in British Columbia to gain the discipline, knowledge and skills to achieve success on the national stage.
Cycling BC’s High Performance Team was launched in 2007 to develop and support riders from youth to elite. The Team is lead by Richard Wooles, Director of High Performance for Cycling BC. Under Richards’ leadership, this focused, structured approach to training and competition has yielded impressive results in Road, Track, Mountain and BMX cycling. This approach is now being expanded to include Cyclocross in 2010.
Jay Loder has been appointed by Cycling BC’s High Performance Team to lead the development of the Cyclocross discipline. The proven program of athlete development used by other High Performance disciples will be applied to the program. The focus of the Cyclocross High Performance program will be to support the development of both male and female junior and U23 athletes. The Cyclocross High Performance program will use the same methodology that has proven successful in other High Performance disciplines including coaching, development camps, fitness testing, equipment and nutritional programs.
