National Team Partnerships
We are extremely proud to announce that Paris to Ancaster has partnered with the Canadian Cyclo-Cross team for the next five years, in an effort to better promote and support Cyclo-Cross in Canada. This five year financial commitment from Paris to Ancaster will directly help the National Team program by offsetting the costs associated with providing mechanical and coaching support to our national team athletes while at international competitions.
The Paris to Ancaster race has taken place for the past 25 years over the rough farm lanes, trails and gravel roads of Southern Ontario. Combined with unpredictable spring weather and the largest field of riders assembled in Canada, it has become a classic race experience for everyone from average riders to Canadian Olympians. Paris to Ancaster has long been a supporter of the National team and this increased level of partnership will allow us to better promote this Canadian spring classic abroad and will help continue to grow the level of support we offer our National team athletes.
Cycling Canada does not receive government funding for Cyclo-Cross programs. This means all projects are funded through sponsorship, private donations or by the athletes themselves. Any amount donated has a direct impact on the development of this sport in Canada. As a not-for-profit organization, Cycling Canada can issue tax receipts for any donation greater than $25.
