Cycling Canada has selected a strong team of endurance and sprint athletes to compete in Rounds 3 and 4 of the Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup. Round 3 will take place in Berlin, Germany on November 30th to December 2nd, followed by Round 4 in London, England, on December 14-16. A number of the athletes will also compete in C1 sanctioned events in Portugal and Switzerland, as Canada continues to collect valuable ranking points towards qualification for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

"This next month is going to be very important for our track programs," said Jessika Grand Bois, Track Program Manager for Cycling Canada. "We're hoping to build on the good performances our team had in Milton [World Cup] last month to keep gaining valuable points in Berlin and London for Olympic qualifications. We will also have a mix of elite and development riders competing in Portugal and Switzerland during the next month, before a quick break for the holidays and before we attack the last set of World Cups of the season."
