The Canadian National Track Team is heading to Europe to begin the 2022 international track cycling calendar with the Belgium Open Track Meeting in Ghent, Belgium on April 15-17, followed by the first Track Nations Cup of the season on April 21-24 in Glasgow, Great Britain. The three event Nations Cup replaces the Track World Cup on the UCI calendar, with Milton, Canada, the second round and Cali, Colombia, the third.
For the Belgian C1 event, the endurance squad will be comprised of Maggie Coles-Lyster, Olympian Ariane Bonhomme, Track World Cup medalists Devaney Collier and Chris Ernst, as well as former Canadian champion Ngaire Barraclough and Mathias Guillemette, Jackson Kinniburgh and Ethan Ogrodniczuk.
Kelsey Mitchell and Lauriane Genest
At the Nations Cup, Coles-Lyster will be the only women's endurance rider, joined by endurance men Mathias Guillemette, Jackson Kinniburgh and Ethan Ogrodniczuk. Also competing in Glasgow will be the Sprint squad led by Olympic champion Kelsey Mitchell, Olympic bronze medalist Lauriane Genest, Olympian Nick Wammes, and development riders Ryan Dodyk and Je'Land Sydney.
With only three Track Nations Cup this season, the sprint team will be looking to gain as many qualification points as possible for the Track Cycling World Championships, where the squad is aiming to qualify for the Team Sprint events, under the leadership of coach Franck Durivaux.
