February 9, 2011 – Seenite Sports, of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, is proud to announce the recipients of the 12th annual National Capital Region cycling bursary. The bursary provides funding to athletes that display both outstanding athletic ability and the desire to achieve greater goals. Since its conception in 2000 the bursary has granted a total $27 000.00 distributed to 28 athletes. Continued success of the bursary is only possible due the strong affiliation and partnership with our wonderful contributors, which include:
The Cyclery, the A-group in the Gatineau Park, Ontario Cycling Association, Ottawa Bicycle Club, and over 50 smaller groups and participants of the Seenite Sports weekly criterium series that contribute from $10 to over $100 each on a yearly basis.
The 2011 recipients are:
– Matteo Dal-Cin – $1200
– Brian Trafford – $1200
– Maxime Leboeuf – $500
On behalf of the bursary committee I would like to thank all the sponsors for their generous contributions that enable these athletes to have both the confidence of support and the financial means to compete at events beyond the local area. Further information about the bursary is available at Seenite Sports web site here.
