“Today I could not be happier for a man who has taken me under his wings and guides me daily to be the best I can be,” posted Christian Schneider of Markham, ON on Facebook. “Coach Krzystof Kurzawinski won the World Championship points race. His year-long road to make this happen is an inspiration to all the WIN team and myself. Knowing that I get my ass handed to me on our “ride to win” rides makes it easier to take. So proud of you coach.”

Kurzawinski responded: “Thanks Christian.. [You’re] next if you start training right.”

Originally from Lódz, Poland, Kurzawinski now lives in Toronto, ON where he operates the Kurzawinskicoach.com Win Cycling Centre. He is also a coach at the Mattamy National Cycling Centre in Milton, ON and also does bike fittings and sales at The Bike Zone.

The UCI World Masters Track Championships ran from Oct. 1-8 and concluded today in Manchester. Drop us a line if you know another Canadian who did well at the Master Track Worlds – info@pedalmag.com
