Monique Sullivan motor pacing
Monique Sullivan - "The whole Canadian track team is back together in LA for the first time since the World Championships in the spring (we all separate and go home in the summer) and it feels good to finally be back together. We are all helping each other prepare for the upcoming World Cup season, to qualify as many spots as possible for the Games and come back with as many medals as possible...."

Stephanie Roorda - Laura Brown - Jasmine Glaesser (Women's Team Pursuit - Last ride before they head to Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico
Laura Brown at Mammoth
Laura Brown: "The Mammoth training camp was great. We had generous accommodations while we were Mammoth, as we were staying in very nice ski chalets. There were lots of roads we were able to chose from to ride on, and we did lots of climbing. One of our longer rides we drove 20 minutes north and rode up Tioga Pass, which took us into Yosemite National Park. This was a highlight of the trip! The road was amazing, and unlike anything I have ever ridden. I am hoping we can have more training camps there in the future."
