Pacific Cycling Centre Head Coach Houshang Amiri carried the Olympic Torch last Friday February 5th on its route to Whistler.

Amiri ran with the Olympic Torch on Government Road in Squamish, BC at 10.38 am, PST. “Representing Canada as a cycling coach in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games was one of the highlights of my life,” he said. “But to be honoured to carry the Olympic Torch in Canada overshadows the other highlights.” Amiri had to be in Squamish two hours earlier for the torch bearer information session and as coincidence would have it Andreas Hestler — the 1996 MTB Olympian — was in his group.

“This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and the memories will stay with me and my family. I would to thank Coca Cola and all the other sponsors for such an amazing torch relay.”

The Pacific Cycling Centre in Victoria, BC is committed to developing the sport of cycling and helping athletes reach their potential. For the past 11 years PCC has proved its ability to develop and produce World Champions. PCC is a leading training centre that produces long term results.
