This the last day to fill out our online survey. To those of you have taken a couple of minutes to do the survey, thanks. To those of you who havenâ€št: this is your last chance to give us your feedback.
The first major race of the North American circuit is due to start next Tuesday - the Redlands Classic. This season opener gives the teams a chance to introduce their new riders (and sponsors!), and lets everyone know who put in the miles over the winter. There will be a large contingent of Canadians present - both road and mountain bike. Among those in attendance:
Shakelee - Eric Wohlberg
Mercury - Gord Fraser
Volvo-Cannondale - Andreas Hestler, Alison Sydor
Team Dirt (Men) - Roland Green
Saturn - Clara Hughes
Saeco-Timex - Linda Jackson
Team Dirt (Women) - Lesley Tomlinson
There will be more there - I know Chrissy Redden, Melanie McQuaid and Melanie Dorion are all planning to attend. Once Redlands is over, the mountain bikers split, with some going to Hawaii and the rest to Arizona for the Specialized Cactus Cup. We will be getting reports from all of these races, so stop by often for updates.
