Posted by Editoress on 08/12/11
On Sunday, five Canadian road cyclists will be racing on the 2012 Olympic Games course as the organising committee for the London Olympic Games hosts its test event for road cycling on the London-Surrey course.
With less than one year to go before the start of the Olympic Games, Dominique Rollin (Boucherville, QC/Française-des-Jeux), Christian Meier (Sussex, NB/UnitedHealthcare), 2011 Criterium Canadian Champion David Veilleux (Cap Rouge, QC/Team EuropCar), Stuart Wight (Riverview, NB) and Jamie Riggs (Manotick, ON/Louis Garneau-Club Chaussures-Norton Rose) will be fighting for the top honours and for the gold medal in this UCI 1.2 race.
Riders from 28 countries will take on this modified course, a shorter version. Teams from across the world will be gathering valuable data in this race, which also serves as Games preparations for the race organizers, volunteers and support staff.
