    The most important, knowledgeable, catalyst, coach, developer and perhaps the father of Canadian Internationally successful cycling was, in my opinion, Colin Hearth who passed away recently. He must definitely be inducted into the a Canadian Cycling Hall of Fame if he’s not already there. His energy, knowledge and vision gave international success and fame to most of our top Canadian cyclists.
