Podium Project 2000
(courtesy Dan Proulx)

Calgary retailer The Bike Shop has honoured some of the Olympic Oval, National Cycling Centre's young riders through the 2000 Podium Project. The award honours commitment to sport, community and team.

This year's Podium Project award recipients are:
Laura Yoisten, 16yrs.
Carrie Tuck, 19 yrs.
Jenny Trew, 18 yrs.
Ryan McKenzie, 16 yrs.

The Podium Project provides young riders with tools and support neccesary to compete at the National level.

The Bike Shop has awarded the Podium Project for the past 3 seasons. The award is given to cadets, juniors and espoir members of the Olympic Oval, National Cycling Centre. This year, 40 young riders were eligible for the award. The award is an extension of The Bike Shop's 1999 Podium Project gift of 15 new track bicycles for the Junior cycling program.

Criteria for the Podium Project includes the following:
1) National rankings
2) Contribution to team
3) Leadership on and off the bike.
4) Commitment to personal development
5) Acts as a role model in the sport of cycling.

Laura Yoisten has been an active member of the Centre since its inception in 1997. Laura was National Cadet MTB Champion in 1998 and earned a Bronze medal in the 1999 National championships in Camp Fortune, Quebec. Laura was a member of the Alberta Team at the 1999 Western Canada Games. Laura is active as a leader for both junior male and female athletes. She has a strong commitment to her teammates and her own training. Laura provides her peers with positive energy and endless enthusiasm. Laura was recently named to the Canadian National Development Team for the 2000 season.

Carrie Tuck has returned to Canadian cycling with a commitment to the Olympic dream. As a junior, Carrie competed in the World Mountain Bike Championships twice - placing in the top 8 on each occasion. Carrie brings a competitive drive that forces everyone to strive for their best. Despite a less demanding racing schedule in '99, Carrie has retained her spot on the Canadian National Development team for 2000. Carrie is committed to the Mountain Bike world but has recently given Track cycling a try. Carrie is evolving into a well rounded and successful young cyclist. She has the ability and drive to be one of Canada's best.

Jenny Trew started cycling in 1997 and has discovered a natural talent and competitive drive she never anticipated. In 1999, Jenny won the National Junior Sprint Championship. Jenny also won a silver medal in the time trial and a bronze in the road race at the National Junior Road Championships. Jenny has already won her first senior road event - winning the criterium at the 2000 edition of the Tour de Vine. Jenny has been a consistently strong and positive influence on her teammates. Jenny will focus on track and road events for the 2000 season. She was recently named to the Canadian National Development team.

Ryan McKenzie is a promising young rider who is slowly finding his feet in the world of national calibre sport. Ryan has competed in cycling since 1997 and has shown a great deal of promise as an aspiring track and road athlete. Ryan is discovering a new level of commitment and dedication to the sport of cycling. He is performing better and training more consistently each year. Ryan is aiming at Junior National team projects for the 2000 season. Ryan brings a contagious sense of humour and positive competitive spirit to the sport and his teammates.

All of the Podium Project athletes look forward to a busy racing season. In July they will complete a National Championships triple - competing in Track, Road and Mountain Bike National Championships. They look forward to racing against a quality field of Canada's best young hopefuls. Thanks to corporate supporters like The Bike Shop, Canada will continue to produce a field of riders who are a class act both on and off the bike.


Canadian road racer Odessa Gunn (Timex) and US Postal pro Levy Leipheimer have recently announced their engagement.
