February 10/14 12:16 pm - Cycling Canada Unveils 2014 National Team List


Posted by Editoress on 02/10/14
 

Athletes are nominated to the list based on Sport Canada carding status, 2013 results, selection to 2013 world championships and discretionary nominations by the National Coaches.

The list is divided into three tiers, which help determine priority access to National Team coaching, equipment, sport science services and funding.

National Team List status does not guarantee selection to National Team projects, which are open to all eligible Canadian athletes.

The published list shows nominations only. In order to confirm their National Team List status, athletes must share their yearly training plans with the National Coaches, complete the UCI True Champion or Cheat anti-doping education program and commit to Cycling Canada's Code of Conduct. The same requirements will apply to any athlete selected to represent Canada.

The complete list is below.  The one big name missing from Tier 1 is Ryder Hesjedal - Hesjedal is in Tier 3 since he did not compete for Canada in Worlds (or any other major project) in 2013.

The full criteria are:

TIER 1:
