November 6, 2009 (Manchester, UK) – The Canadian Para-cycling Worlds Track Team has arrived in Manchester, UK to compete at the 2009 Para-cycling Track World Championships starting this Friday, November 6th until Sunday, November 8th. The team arrived a week early in Newport, to fine-tune their speed work and practice their start and various technical skills.
They had time to settle in, receive daily physiotherapy treatment and get the adequate mechanical support. The B& VI were particularly pleased to receive brand new Dolan Track Tandems and were extremely delighted about the compact geometry of the frames. It was also a good opportunity to meet Team Doctor, Dr. Susan Labrecque.
The team has now been training for three days on the Manchester track and posted promising times, boosting their motivation and confidence.
Competitions start on Friday, November 6 with the LC’s Men category pursuit qualifying rounds.
