September 24, 2011 (Copenhagen, Denmark) – Two days after her career best performance in the Time Trials race at 2011 UCI World Championships in Denmark, Tara Whitten of Edmonton, Alta conducted a series of tests over two days on the track at the Copenhagen velodrome to see how she can manage best her performances in both cycling sports at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
The data and results of the test, which will not be disclosed publicly, will give Wooles a greater understanding on what needs to be done for Whitten to reach optimal performances next summer at the Games, and allow for a better insight on which discipline she opts to compete in during the Olympic Games.
Barring any schedule changes, the two-day, six-race Omnium event will be disputed four days after the road time trials race. Whitten is the two-time World Champion (2010-2011) in the event.
The Olympic-size velodrome in Copenhagen is located minutes away from the Canadian team accommodation.
