March 5/13 17:01 pm - Saskatoon Youth Cycling Program Enters 3rd Year
Posted by Editoress on 03/5/13
We are excited to announce that the Saskatoon Business College Cycling Project presented by Red Goat Sports has launched their 2013 season! The Saskatchewan-based youth cycling project is now moving into their third season with a lot of excitement.
What began in 2011 as the Western Cycle Development Team, then morphed into the iSupportLocalBikeShops.com Cycling Project for 2012 and now, with a host of new sponsors after a great year of development, we have now emerged from the cold winter as the Saskatoon Business College Cycling Project p/b Red Goat Sports.
Blair Chapman, of the Saskatoon Business College, indicates "we are thrilled to be the title sponsor of this youth project. We want to see youth being developed as leaders here in Saskatchewan, and feel that this cycling project is a perfect opportunity to have us involved and helping to make that happen."
Red Goat Sports owns and operates the Red Goat Training Center in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. They operate the only indoor Computrainer cycling center in the province. Owner Mike Vandenburghe states, "we have had the team conduct three training camps this winter at our facility. It is a perfect place for them to train together in an environment that has such great technology that will enable them to develop their skills."
The team has set some lofty goals for this season, in getting as many of their members qualified for the Canada Summer Games, and will be taking their race calendar across Western Canada, including stops in Saskatoon, Edmonton, with a priority of defending their podium placing at last year's Banff Stage Race.
The team is excited to bring on new and renewed sponsorship for 2013 from Louis Garneau, Saskatchewan Blue Cross, Fluid, Kenda, Big Sky Cycles, Silverman Oilfield Services, Southern Range Well Servicing, and Total Athlete.
