After successful World Cup events in Italy and Spain earlier this season, the Canadian Para-Cycling Team is determined to finish the UCI road season on a strong and positive note as the best in the world converge in Greenville, South Carolina, for the 2014 UCI Para-Cycling Road World Championships from August 29th to September 1st.
After putting the final touches to their preparation in Bromont, Quebec, the team is now ready to compete for podium honours and world titles, while chasing valuable points to qualify for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.
Canada presently sits in fourth position in the UCI Nations Ranking and will be counting on athletes such as defending World Champion Shelley Gautier, to increase it's ranking. Gautier won the White Jersey in 2014, awarded to the World Cup Champion for each category.
Other Canadians also won medals on the Para-cycling Road World Cup this summer: Marie-Ève Croteau (Québec, QC), Jaye Milley (Calgary, AB), Ross Wilson (Sherwood Park, AB), Marie-Claude Molnar (St-Hubert, QC), Nicole Clermont (Sherbrooke, QC) as well as the men's tandem formed by Daniel Chalifour (Mont-Laurier, QC) and Alexandre Cloutier (St-Antoine-de-Tilly, QC)
The fact that Cycling Canada can expect multiple medal performances in Greenville is greatly due to the support of its provincial associations, the Canadian Paralympic Committee and Own the Podium.
