Posted by Editoress on 04/4/14

The Canadian Women"s Road team will make its spring debut in Europe this week.  Between April 7th and May 4th eight riders will tackle a busy race schedule in Holland, Belgium and Luxembourg, with a mix of one day races, stage races and the iconic Fleche Wallonne World Cup.  The riders will stay at the Canadian base, located in Tielt-Winge, Belgium.

The team is a mixture of experienced and development riders, some of whom will be contesting races on European soil for the first time.  This concentrated block of racing will provide the riders with early-season intensity as well as the opportunity to race against the best in the World.

The Canadian team boasts Track World Cup champions and World Championship silver medalists Allison Beveridge and Steph Roorda, who will be accompanied by a mix of track endurance and road athletes.
