December 30, 2013 (London, ON) – The Christmas break has been a busy one for Ontario Youth racers.  Twenty-two wide-eyed racers took part in the second try-out performance event for the Ontario Rising Star Development Academy.  The Ontario Cycling and Canadian Sports Institute Ontario are the main drivers of the Youth program to introduce Road and Mountain bike riders to the benefits of structured training at a Velodrome.  Ontario coaches, Sean Kelly, Art Adams, Lisa Perlmutter, and Rob Fex put the youth riders from Milton, Barrie, Toronto, and London through a very tough and enjoyable three hours at the FCV.
