December 24, 2011 (Montreal, QC) – The Quebec Cycling Federation (FQSC) has restructured some of its sectors – BMX, cyclocross and mountain biking – under the name Off-Road. The new sector will be headed up by Bruno Vachon with the new title, Technical Director Off-Road.
Although different, these disciplines have many similarities, including the fact that they are made in a context and environment “off road”. The combination of these three disciplines so it seemed only natural. In addition to benefiting practitioners, this reorganization will have a positive impact on the management of activities in this sector.
“This restructuring will establish closer links between the different cycling disciplines and to create more synergy in terms of tenure, and increase our effectiveness while providing an improved quality of service to our members,” said CEO, Louis Barbeau.
Whoever assumes the burden of this new area can only agree in the same without. “The new structure should maximize staff time. In the same trip, we can cover more than one file. It gives more room for the team, which will undoubtedly help us refine the product. It’s motivating, “said Bruno Vachon.
An ideal candidate for this position
“In the context of this restructuring, Bruno, who comes from the mountain bike and already held the post of technical director BMX and cyclocross, became the logical candidate to assume the technical direction of off-road sector. It obviously will not do the job alone. He will be assisted by a coordinator BMX and mountain biking, as well as an administrative assistant and an assistant sports seasonal, “said Louis Barbeau.
“I got hooked on mountain biking 15 years ago. In fact, it is through this discipline that I have come to be interested in others. So I am delighted with the idea to add to my tasks the technical component of mountain biking “, said the principal concerned.
“The year 2012 will be a course of transition. It will require a small adjustment period, but at the end of the line, it will benefit everyone. The season will probably be a little harder than usual, but I’m confident it will resolve quickly, “he said, excited to meet this new challenge.
