January 31/13 16:30 pm - Richard Wooles Leaves National Team
Posted by Editoress on 01/31/13
Richard Wooles had announced his intention to leave Cycling Canada, effective at the end of the month of January, accepting a full-time position with Cycling BC, the provincial governing body in British Columbia. This is not a surprise, since Wooles had announced his intentions to step down from the National team in the months following the Olympics, and had been working part-time in the position through the Fall.
Wooles will focus his efforts, energies and passion to further develop the sport in British Columbia as Manager and Provincial Coach. His expertise and knowledge will allow for great development in the province and ultimately will strengthen cycling in Canada as a whole.
“First, we must thank Cycling BC for allowing us to work with Richard for the past six years. This partnership has led to the resurgence of the Canadian Track Cycling, winning numerous international track cycling medals at Olympic Games, World Championships and World Cups,” said Jacques Landry, Director of High Performance for Cycling Canada.
Landry added: “A enormous ‘Thank you’ to Richard for his unconditional and loyal services to track cycling in Canada, as well as for fundamentally changing the track cycling culture Canada, a culture that will grow on in the near and extended future."
