Coast-to-Coast Ride Update - January 9, 2002
On Saturday, January 5, 2002, Kevin Wallace and Jeff Rushton began their 24 day Coast-to-Coast Ride Against Cancer, a cycling journey to raise money for cancer research. Jeff and Kevin are riding from San Diego, California to St. Augustine, Florida over 24 days to raise funds for two great charities: the Lance Armstrong Foundation (US Donations) and the Trillium Breast Cancer Fund (Canadian Donations).
Today, January 9th, marks Day 5 of their ride. In the first four days, Kevin and Jeff have ridden 844km/524 miles, climbed 8220m/26,968 ft, raised over $95,000 for the charities and been featured on local NBC and WB TV affiliates in San Diego and Phoenix! On today's ride (dedicated to Bill Johnston), Jeff and Kevin tackle the first of two days crossing the Continental Divide - their two toughest days of the journey!

O-Cup 2002 Meeting
Courtesy Adam Ruppel
It was great to see over 30 downhill competitors, and some x-country riders, view their concerns and ideas for the 2002 Bonham and Company Ontario Cup Series. This is the first time that riders have been invited to a meeting and given input to improve the quality of the Ontario Cups.
- More volunteer support needed to build courses under the DH coordinator Peter Appleton's supervision.
- Better quality downhill courses completed in time to practice.
- We are making a commitment to improve the timing equipment and make it more consistent.
- More technical courses to get Ontario riders ready for National and International Competitions.
- More consistency with how sponsors, and teams are treated at the events.
- More consistent start/finish areas, course marking, pre-riding, announcing, course laps, and awards.
Women's Development Team Project
From: Pierre Hutsebaut, Director National Programs
To: Women Development Team Athletes
This year again, the Canadian Cycling Association wants to demonstrate its commitment to Women's Cycling Development by offering to 6 women athletes an exciting opportunity.
If you are interested to invest in your own athletic development as a cyclist, your 2002 season might start in Europe.
From Mid-February to Mid-May, the Canadian Cycling Association will run a development camp in Limoux, south of France.
