July 14/13 18:37 pm - Canada Names National Squad for Tour de l'Abitibi

Posted by Editoress on 07/14/13

The Canadian Junior Men road cycling team is ready to take the world's top junior riders at the 2013 Tour de l'Abitibi, a seven-day stage race which runs from July 15th to 21st. This prominent race for Junior men riders, held in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region of northern Quebec, is celebrating its 45th edition this year.

Team Canada is comprised of William Elliot (18; Barrie, ON), Hendrick Pineda (18; Montreal, QC), Jack Burke (18; Toronto, ON), Adam Jamieson (17; Barrie, ON), Felix Lapointe (16; St-Lambert-de-Lauzon, QC) and Sean McKinnon (17; Hamilton, ON).

The team will be managed by Luc Arseneau, Development Coach at Cycling Canada. "We are looking to score some big Nations Cup points, with the objective to obtain additional spots for the upcoming World Championships. These events offer our Junior men riders some important opportunities to gain experience at international competitions."

The Tour de l'Abitibi begins tomorrow [Monday], with the crowd-pleasing Challenge Sprint, and ends next Sunday after 600.1 kilometres of racing over seven days.

More than 130 cyclists between the ages of 17 and 18 will be taking over the roads of Abitibi-Témiscamingue. Overall, eight countries will be represented, including Germany, Australia, the Bahamas, Brunei, Canada, Colombia, the United States, and Morocco.

The same Canadian squad will then race together at the Trophée Centre Morbihan, a race that is part of the UCI Nations Cup, on August 3-4.
