Small Canadian team to focus on Men’s Team Pursuit and Men Omnium
Cycling Canada is pleased to announce its selections for the 2014 UCI Track Junior World Championships, scheduled to take place in Seoul, South Korea, from August 8th to 12th.
The main objective of the Junior World Track Championships is to provide a developmental opportunity to a competitive group of identified Canadian track cyclists. The Canadian group has the potential to finish with a Top-8 performance in the Team Pursuit.
As a feeder into the Elite Track Program, these World Championships are a crucial step in an athletes' developmental pathway. In 2014, the primary focus remains tightly aligned with those of the Elite Track Program, which in this case will be the Team Pursuit and Omnium: the two track endurance events presented at the Olympic Games.
Evan Burtnick (17, Edmonton, AB) Men’s Team Pursuit
Connor Byway (16, Ottawa, ON) Men’s Team Pursuit
Alexander Cowan (17, Calgary, AB) Men’s Team Pursuit
Adam Jamieson (18, Barrie, ON) Men’s Team Pursuit
Bayley Simpson (16, Lindsay, ON) Men’s Team Pursuit
