Team Canada is set to depart for the second UCI World Cup event of the 2015 campaign, to take place at the Olympic Training Center Papendal in the Netherlands.
Canada is pursuing very important qualification points for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, and the five Canadian athletes heading to Papendal will be looking to improve on their opening World Cup performance, building their form towards the Toronto 2015 Pan-American Games.
Canada is sending three Elite Men to the event: Jim Brown (Airdire, AB), James Palmer (North Vancouver, BC) and Brandon Reid (Victoria, BC). All three Elite Men competed at the 2014 World Championships.
Alex Tougas (Pitt Meadows, BC) is continuing his progression in the Junior Men category, while Drew Mechielsen (Langley, BC) will be competing in the Junior Women category.
The Time Trial SuperFinals will take place May 9th, with the BMX Supercross races on May 10th.
