From Trek Red Truck:

Denise Ramsden has been selected for the UCI World Championships taking place in Richmond, Virginia this September 19th-27th. It caps a remarkable year for Denise and her Trek Red Truck team. The in-form Ramsden has enjoyed much success this season including: winning the Gastown Grand Prix and the Sea Otter Road Race, along with a number of other podium results. This marks the 4th Elite World Championships that she has taken part in. Denise represented Canada at the 2012 London Olympics and was the Elite National RR Champion that same year. She has taken a number of Canadian U23 and Junior titles also.


Denise isn’t the only Trek Red Truck rider who will be heading to the USA for the UCI World Championships. She will join three others from the TRT squad who have qualified to race at the World Junior Championships. Gillian Ellsay (Courtenay, BC) and Joel Taylor (Victoria, BC) will be racing the TT and the Road Race events. While Willem Boersma (Portage la Prairie, MB), will be on the start line for the Road Race.
