“Our endurance squad delivered great performances this weekend,” said Jessika Grand Bois, Track Program Manager at Cycling Canada. “The double bronze medal in the Team Pursuit on the first day was the highlight of this World Cup and we’ve seen great form in other events as well. It was a bit of a difficult weekend for our sprinters but we’re looking forward to London [World Cup], where they’ll be determined to make up for this event.”

“I had a few ups and downs,” said Beveridge. “I had a decent Scratch Race, and then had to reset after the Tempo, but given the time we are in the season, there are some good points that I can use to move forward for the rest of the season.”

The Canadian sprint team struggled over the weekend, with both Hugo Barrette (men’s Sprint) and Lauriane Genest (women’s Sprint) relegated during their first round races for entering the sprint lane while someone else was already there or leaving it during the sprint. However, both riders had strong performances in the 200m time trial, with Genest seventh and Barrette 16th.
