Canadian Team in Columbia

Kurt Innes is reporting from the Track World Cup in Cali, Columbia, where the Canadian team has just arrived.

Greetings all,

Our Canadian entourage arrived into Cali, Colombia around 9PM local time last night, after a fairly long travel day From Montreal, PQ. Like most international flights , some of our bikes and equipment didn't make the trip with us. We are hopeful to receive it later this afternoon , prior to our training session at 5PM tonite.

The flight was fairly busy from Miami, airport and included many teams travelling down for the world cup. Germany, USA, France, Suisse and our Canadian team were all on the plane. ... understandable that all of our bikes didn't make it when you actually see the quantity of equipment that many athletes travels with!

The hotel we are at is quite nice. It is same location as last year, and the track is in very good shape as well. The weather is normal for Cali, with 25 degrees currently.

We are training this afternoon, from 5-6:30 PM. Very excited to get the show on the road and see how everyone is riding after the winter of training and pre season events!!

More news later,
