Pacific Cycling Centre mentors Erinne Willock and Svein Tuft will be assisting talented young Canadian cyclists to achieve professional status, in an initiative announced this week in Vancouver.

A new funding program called the Global Relay Bridge the Gap Fund, will invest $400,000 to support cyclists between the ages of 19 to 25. Sponsored by Global Relay – who also are the title sponsor of the Gastown Grand Prix – Willock and Tuft, with fellow professional cyclists Andrew Pinfold, Will Routley and Ryan Anderson will manage and mentor the program.

The Global Relay Bridge the Gap Fund will help bridge the gap between the amateur and professional ranks, and national to international racing at a crucial time in a cyclist’s career. Financial resources are often a barrier to young athletes as they try and juggle work and cycling commitments.  This new fund will help to address these issues.

Riders considered for selection will be assessed on ability, determination and attitude that is required to be a successful professional athlete, and also the rider’s need and what steps can be taken to move the rider into the pro ranks. Each rider will have a mentor who can support them and offer advice on training.
