The National Cycling Centre Hamilton (NCCH) has announced that Quebec rider Audrey Labrie and USA rider Erin Donohue have signed to race with NCCH in 2014. Both riders represented their respective countries at the 2012 Junior World Road Championships.
NCCH Manager/Head Coach Rick Lee said "Both Audrey and Erin bring a great deal of International racing to our Centre, and above all they have the right attitude! Erin is a gutsy rider, she proved that in winning the UCI GP Rimouski in 2012, and Audrey has an explosive sprint. You throw in Jess Allen (Australian 2011 Junior IRTT World Champion), Maddison Vit (Australian 2011 Junior World representative), and our own Saskia Kowalchuk (2012 National Junior IRTT Champion) and Madeleine McConnell (3rd UCI GP Rimouski 2012), and you have a very strong team."
"Having the International riders racing and training with our youngsters at the NCCH creates a very positive environment, our youngsters will have role models and mentors to help lift them to new levels of belief and performance."
Saskia Kowalchuk said "The Team will have 5 riders who have represented their Countries at the World Championships in the past 2 years, we have top class time trial riders, a top sprinter, and riders that are strong in the hills. We will be a very young team, yet I know that we will be very competitive, and I cannot wait to meet with all the girls in Spring 2014."
