Dundas’ Ruby West named to Cycling Canada’s Team Canada

Cycling Canada announced today the team of 11 athletes that will represent Canada at the UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships. The world championships will take place in Bieles, Luxembourg, on January 28th and 29th.

Among the team will be Ruby West from Dundas, Ontario who will represent Canada in the Under-23 women.

“Though Cyclo-cross is not an Olympic event, we have seen an increasing number of athletes that are taking interest in this sport, as it nicely complements mountain biking,” explained Jacques Landry, High Performance Director at Cycling Canada. “Through this increased interest in CX we are slowly enhancing the quality and depth of the riders that take the start in World Cups and at the world championships.”

“The 2017 CX Worlds being held in Bieles promise to be a great venue for our Canadian riders who, for the most part, have been training and racing out of our European base in Tielt-Winge, Belgium, since mid-December. Under the watchful eye of Scott Kelly as team manager, I trust that our Canadian CX riders will come out of these Worlds with some great performances.”

The team will stage at the Cycling Canada European base in Tielte-Winge, Belgium, before attending the World Cup in Hoogerheide, Netherlands. The team will travel to Bieles, Luxembourg a few days before the start of the world championships.
