This weekend, Canada will have five athletes participating in the test event for the mountain bike competition at next year's Olympic Games.  The team consists of the top riders who are likely to make up the selection pool for the Games:

Emily Batty (declined)
Leandre Bouchard
Peter Disera
Catharine Pendrel
Haley Smith
Sandra Walter

Sean Fincham - Alternate

 

Mountain bike head coach Dan Proulx explains, "The Test Event is a great opportunity to learn about the Olympic course and the Olympic environment in Tokyo. The focus is on learning rather than results. We're investing most of our time and energy into the training days on [the] course this week. The race on Sunday is simply a fun opportunity to see how the course rides at speed. We're certainly not expecting results from our riders here. This event is about planning for success in 2020."
