BlakDog Bikes, New BC Team
BlakDog Bikes is proud to announce the formation of a new team for the 2005 cycling season. For its inaugural year, BlakDog has fielded a team of Senior Men and Women to compete at the provincial and national levels of the road and track cycling calendar. The mens team has been created to be a mixture of senior and development riders with the emphasis of creating a strong program for developing young riders in the coming years.
Current senior members have experienced high level international competition and results in such venues as World Masters Track Championships, The Greek Paralympics, and most recently some World Cup Track events.
The Teams plan for this coming year is to introduce the newer riders to higher levels of competition, with plans to qualify our junior rider for the Tour of Abitibi and field a full elite team for the nationals. The team will also be competing in road and track races throughout Western Canada and the Pacific North West of the U.S.
BlakDog Bikes is located in Coquitlam B.C. They have been a full service shop for both road and track that has been serving the community for 10 years. The owner, Kam Nijjar, has helped bring on board a handful of other sponsors to help develop the team. Co-sponsors include Popeyes Supplements, FSA components, Biemme clothing, and The Hop and Vine pub.
