Action Motorcycles continues to support elite training programs at the Pacific Cycling Centre, with the announcement that the company is renewing its sponsorship of the Victoria based high performance cycling training facility, into 2012.

“We would like to thank Action Motorcycles for their support by providing the Pacific Cycling Centre with the latest Honda motorbike,” says PCC Head Coach Houshang Amiri. “This bike is used to support our elite training programs, and training camps in preparation for the World Championships. As well, the motorbike supports many races including the Tour de Victoria with Ryder Hesjedal.”

Motor pacing is used for Amiri’s training sessions and this technique was used for many of the PCC athletes including Spencer Smitheman, currently racing in Europe with the Canadian U23 National Team; Erinne Willock, who is competing in France and Holland with her team TIBCO, the Canadian National Team in final preparation for the Road World Championship in Denmark, and Max Plaxton, 2011 MTB National Champion who is in Switzerland with the Canadian National MTB team for the UCI World Championship.

“Using a motorbike during training is a practical coaching tool at the elite level,” says Amiri,” I can talk to the athletes while supporting them and give on-the-spot coaching tips.” Junior cycling sensation Annie Ewart, also spent hours of training behind this motor bike, and went on to win the Canadian National Road Race and Time Trial. She is presently in Belgium as part of the Canadian Junior National Team, where she will race in the Road World Championship in Denmark on September 14th.

Action Motorcycles has sponsored the Pacific Cycling Centre since 2004. www.action-motorcycles.com
