PCC athletes have been honing their cycling skills in preparation for the upcoming season. The February camp was the fourth and last of the pre-season camps. “We did about 700km of riding, two hours of core and dynamic strength in the gym session, and a two hour seminar on performance nutrition,” said Head Coach, Houshang Amiri.

Following the camp, athletes participated in the Western Challenge Track Championship at the Burnaby Velodrome.  A Cycling Canada and Cycling BC initiative, 400 male and female athletes in the Under 15, Under 17 and Junior categories competed in events ranging from the Individual and Team Pursuit to the Team Sprint, Sprint and Keirin.  Mass start competitions included the Scratch Race, Points Race and Elimination.  Riders and teams came from British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan, plus the United States.

The racing took place Friday and Saturday and PCC and Saskatchewan athletes produced some commendable results. Micaiah Besler won the individual pursuit and women’s omnium, and placed third in the elite women sprinting. Callie Swan (u23) was third in the elite women’s omnium and Colin Fowlow and Lukas Conly won the team pursuit. Colin Fowlow also won the elite men Keirin.

“There were some great performances from the athletes, and all showed great skill to podium. The four camps provided the athletes with essential pre-season training and it paid off at the Western Challenge,” said Amiri.
