The Quebec-based Junior cycling team SpiderTech Powered by Powerwatts is proud to present its first five riders. The selected young athletes all submitted applications to the program, which included a letter of motivation, a sports resume as well as their last academic report card.
The team managed by Claude Pinard, François Cossette and Chris Rozdilsky will be able to count on these five cyclists next year:
Alex Cataford: In addition to excelling on the road in every challenge, and particularly in the time trial, Alex represented Canada at the Track World Junior Championships in Italy last August. The team will be able to benefit from his international experience.
Frédéric Cossette: Great climber and member of the Québec provincial team, Frédéric has set his goals on getting better on every aspect of cycling. He will take advantage of the upcoming ski season to improve his physical preparation for the next cycling season.
Lambert Gatineau: We identify cyclists like Lambert as a "cut throat sprinter". The past season was an excellent year for Lambert, and included a second place finish at the U-17 Track Canadian Championships, as well as his title at the Mardis Cyclistes de Lachine.
Émile Jean: An excellent cyclist, Émile has been progressing at a fast pace on the Québec cycling circuit for the past two years, as demonstrated by his time trial Junior Québec Champion title, his victory at the Classique Trois-Rivières - Québec and his three medals at the Track Canadian Junior Championships.
Alexandre Pinard: All-around cyclist and first-class team mate, Alexandre continues to progress on both road and track events since his selection on the Québec track team two years ago. He will prepare for his next cycling season by being a member of the Juvenile Elite Hockey Team at Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf.
Further announcements will be made over the next few weeks.
Moreover, the team also announced today that to complete the roster, female and male Junior cyclists can still send in their applications.
