    Basically Canadian bike racers need to perfect their training, riding efficiency, and skills to be competitive at International level. I watched our top track cyclist in the Olympics make crass mistakes during competition. You could see his desire and power but also his inefficiencies.

    Secondly we need experienced skilled successful coaches and we are getting those overseas. Good. These experienced old school/new school coaches can teach Canadian coaches a winning formula. All the home grown coaches I know don’t come from a good successful coached background. Formula for failure.

    It seems to me that Jaques sees what I’ve been seeing for years athletes not guided properly (training and skills) to their full potential. Hopefully with this new facility in Milton and good imported coaches everyone will learn and improve.
