February 01, 2016 (Zolder, Belgium) – Team Canada wrapped up their UCI World CX Championships project in Zolder, Belgium with strong showings from the largest Canadian contingent at a cyclocross Worlds with 13 riders and representation in all categories. The surge in numbers can be largely attributed to the newly formed Canadian Cyclocross Working Group that is endeavoring to gain more support for cyclocross in Canada and to help develop more riders in the sport by giving them experience at the top level in Europe.

The project was made possible largely through crowd funding and volunteered time by staff and mechanics. The team had a very cohesive feel and great camaraderie, evident by nightly team dinners with riders taking turns preparing them.
