Canadian Track Team off to World Cup # 1
In true Calgary fashion, the weather greets our Calgary based athletes with a May long weekend snow storm. As we finished up our last practice on the Glenmore Velodrome this morning at 11h00, just in time for the winds to pick up, blowing in a snow storm from the Rocky Mountains. By 14h00 the snow was falling on Calgary! At 15h00 the snow continues to fall, melting by the time it hit the ground, but still a snow storm all the same.
The first UCI track world Cup of 2001 takes place next weekend, May 25-27 in Cali, Colombia. Our Canadian Team will be composed of 9 athletes, and 2 staff.
The team is made up of 4 male sprinters, 1 female sprinters, 2 endurance males, and 2 endurance females.

Following the meetings on Sunday and Monday, along with some light training in the beautiful surroundings of Bromont, we head to Cali.
