Vandale showed a competitive spirit in his style of riding this past season. This is a key element of what the program looks for in an athlete. "Seeing Danick come second to Peter Disera, one of our current and returning riders, at U23 Canadian Cyclocross National Championships, along with demonstrating his win in the Individual Time Trial at the Western Canada Games, shows me that he has the ability to maintain a high level of output over such distances." said Team Director, Mark Ernsting.
Jon Watkin, Team Director of the Accent Inns Russ Hay's Cycling Team said, "We are immensely pleased that Danick has been given an opportunity to race at the professional level of cycling. This affirms the success of our program to develop and transition promising amateur road cycling talent in Western Canada. We are proud of Danick's accomplishments and look forward to following his cycling career as it continues to grow."
