March 20/11 17:51 pm - Canadian Team Arrives in Netherlands for Track Worlds


Posted by Editoress on 03/20/11
 

Team Canada has arrived in Apeldoorn, Netherlands for the Track Worlds, which begin on Wednesday. Here are some images of the riders on the track. Below are quotes by some of the riders on their first impressions of Apeldoorn. (Note: CC will be on site as of Tuesday to begin providing up-to-the-minute coverage).

Team staff asked members of the Women's Team Pursuit squad to comment on the changes in Team Canada for this event, bringing on some new, young riders (Thomas Hums , Scott Mulder & Hugo Barrette) in Men's Team Sprint and 18 year old Jasmin Glaesser and Olympic medalist Clara Hughes on the women's side of the team.

Stephanie Roorda on the dynamics of having the new, younger cyclists on the team: "It's kind of funny to be considered as one of the older riders, being that I feel like I just started as well but they (Glaesser, Hums, Mulder and Barrette) are a few years younger than me and it's fun to have them on the team. It's just a good time having them here and everything with them is so tight and I don't know if it's because they're young or just their personalities but they make it fun."

Laura Brown on the changes in the Women's pursuit team: "The Women's Team Pursuit has almost doubled in size and it just makes the team faster. We're able to do better training sessions with more people. If someone's not feeling great, there's more riders to put in. With more people it's been a really good transition from a small team to a bigger team with more of a rider pool you can always make the fastest team possible."
