Wohlberg Takes Hotter Than Hell Opener (thanks to H. for this)

Just got news from Eric Wohlberg. He is riding Hotter than Hell with Shaklee. The first stage was a ITT. He put 50 seconds on second place. There are several big teams participating. A Saturn rider, Plymouth, and the US National Team. He says he is feeling tired from all the travelling but he is still going awfully fast.

Ontario Executive Director Leaves

While in Montreal earlier this week for a meeting with the Bicycle Trade Association of Canada (BTAC - see below), I had the chance to ask the Ontario Cycling Association Executive Director, Blair Webster, about a rumour we had heard - that he was leaving the OCA. Blair confirmed that this was true, to take effect at the end of the first week of September. While this is a blow for the OCA (Blair has run the OCA office for some 5 years, by my reckoning), we are happy for Blair personally - he will be moving on to a City of Mississauga position with the Mississauga Sports Council. The OCA Board will be meeting on September 8th to start looking for a new E.D.

Mechanic Certification Starts

We wrote earlier in the year about a new Bicycle Mechanic Certification Program that was under development - well, it has now been approved and is to begin this fall. After presentations to the Board of the Bicycle Trade Association of Canada (BTAC), the Certification standards for two levels of bicycle mechanic - Assembler and Repair - have now been approved. Certification examinations are scheduled to begin in November, and information sessions will be held in about 3 weeks, at the Canadian bicycle trade show in Toronto. For more information about the Mechanic Certification Program, contact either BTAC (514-393-1132) or us. Why us? Well, our editor wrote the standards...

We are just catching up on all the news that has come in while we were at the Ontario Provincials, so stay tuned for numerous updates over the next 24 hours.
