Once again the Summer Olympics are here and we all look forward to some great feats and wish our Canadian Olympic team, glory, medals and good fun. I have collected times and links for those who want to watch and know more about our racers.
We have four excellent mountain bike riders and a BMX rider who qualified this time, with pretty good prospects to rank or even win it all!
Familiar MTB racing names Emily Batty, Catharine Pendrel, Raphael Gagne, and Leandre Bouchard will be trying their best against the world’s top mountain bike riders. They all consistently have been coming in the top 10 or winning races at the Pan Am Games, Canadian Nationals, World Championships…
We also have favourite, Tory Nyhaug competing in BMX cycling who did win gold at the Toronto 2015 Pan Am games.
The 2016 Summer Olympics are actually in Rio’s winter season being in South America . It will still be Hot enough! Here are a few short videos to introduce you to the course and tricky terrain the riders will face.
Go Canada Go!
