August 24/12 15:45 pm - Canadian Paracycling Team Arrives in London

Posted by Editor on 08/24/12

After a final training camp in Roubaix, France, Canada's Para-cycling team has arrived in London for the Paralympic Games, running August 29th to September 9th.

The squad, comprised of 13 athletes, three tandem pilots and six support staff, spent the past eight days at the new high-tech indoor velodrome in Roubaix. The facility is managed by Arnaud Tournant, a 15-time world champion, Olympic champion and world record holder in the Kilo.  The track enabled Canada to do the best preparation possible for the Games.

"The opportunity to train at that velodrome with a high quality support staff was an ideal preparation for the athletes," said Canada's head coach Eric Van den Eynde.

In Beijing, Canada's Para-cycling team won two bronze medals. Following those Games, Canada intensified its recruiting to find new athletes for the Canadian Para-cycling program.

In London, Canada looks to climb the world order in the sport. The rookies and the veterans are determined to leave their mark.

The opening ceremonies are slated for August 29th, with the track cycling competition from August 30th to September 2nd and the road events September 5th to 8th.
