National Centre Coach To Vancouver:

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that I will be re-locating to Vancouver in early January to continue with my professional coaching career.

After completing Level 4 NCCP certification at the National Coaching Institute - Calgary, I need a new challenge. Warmer climates, extended racing seasons and high quality athletes make the lower mainland a natural choice for the next phase of my career.

The Olympic Oval - National Cycling Centre has been an incredible place to work during the past 4 years. From a tiny beginning, it has grown to be a leader in the world of cycling. There are a lot of great athletes and coaches working at the Centre. They are truly a "world class" operation in every respect.

In the next few months, I will be creating a high performance cycling program in the Vancouver & White Rock area. I am planning to start a program focused on Junior and Espoir athletes. I will post the details of the program when they are available.

Thanks to all the athletes and coaches (especially Head Coach Kurt Innes) for making my time in Calgary such an incredible experience. I am confident that the Centre will continue to grow and be even more successful in the future.

A special farewell to all the athletes that came to the Oval from Tri-Athletics and to Tanya Dubnicoff who has become a great friend. I will really miss you guys!

If anyone should need to contact me - I can be reached by email at

Thank you

Dan Proulx

Biker Banquet - Ottawa
Courtesy John Large

Everything is in place for the 10th Annual Biker Banquet as we hit the one week to go mark.

Saturday, November 3 at Camp Fortune
5:30 PM Cocktails.
7:30 Dinner

Dennis Thompson from Fresh Air Experience will have some of his world class collection of antique bicycles/goodies on hand to start conversation at the cocktail hour.

Olympic rowing medalist, Arctic Adventurer and journalist Alison Korn will be our guest speaker.

Live music , with "NAVY BLUE" will crank up and carry the hardier partiers through into the night. I know most of the crowd head for bed a little earlier than others but there has always been a core of those who stay to remember the stupider parts of the evening.

The focus each year remains on the builders and supporters of the sport. The idea is to buy dinner for those who help make the sport happen. The are no winners if there are no races and events to ride in.

Tickets are out at the shops and are $35 dollars. Last year over 200 came for Camp Fortune's famous buffet which will again include both the roast beast and a vegetarian main dish, along with the veggies and salads, desserts etc. Should be fun. The no lycra rule remains in effect - semi formal please. Raffle prizes as good as ever.

For those with a little gas left in tank Saturday morning Chris Mullington has launched the:

"First Annual Parliament Hill Climb"

This will be a short hill climb run behind the Parliament Buildings. The main event will be a bit of a tractor pull. We have a trailer to hook up to any bike. That trailer is loaded up with a guy named Norm. You have to pull Norm up the hill. Any parent with a trailer knows the work involved. Prizes and fun. Registration at 9:00 am and start at 10 am.

Contact for more info. A detailed posting will follow.
