Over in China the Canadian Track team had some great results at the World Cup, with Yukon’s Zach Bell winning double gold and Edmontonian Tara Whitten winning double bronze. Whitten picked up her second bronze with teammates Laura Brown and Stephanie Roorda in the Team Pursuit.

The trio of Whitten, Brown and Roorda not only claimed bronze, but also set a new Canadian record time in the event, something to be very pleased with. Head Coach Richard Wooles had this to say about the event and the results. “We had some great results and are showing progression heading towards the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games. Our medals, personal bests, and Canadian Records are a direct result of the great work that has and is being done on all fronts, from riders, support staff and everyone involved with track cycling in Canada. Thank you all for being involved and helping our riders so far with what is building for the years ahead in Canadian track cycling. We are stretching our resources as far as we can to best prepare our athletes, but are always on the lookout for more financial and material support.”
