In order to add to the excitement of the mountain bike Provincial Championships and to generate interest for the 2015 season, Team Hardwood-Trek is excited to make several announcements.
First, we are pleased to announce that Steve Neal will be joining the coaching staff of our Silver program (Minime Aged Athletes) for the 2015 season. We are extremely fortunate that one of Canada’s leading cycling coaches will be introducing a “grass roots” version of his world class knowledge and training ideas to our athletes.
We would also like to announce that Jon Barnes, former Team Hardwood-Trek athlete and current Trek Canada mountain bike team member, will be joining the coaching staff for our Bronze Race program (Squirt and Pee Wee O-Cup Racers).

We Need More Cowbell
Posted by Heidi in OCA News Monday, 15 September 2014 16:06 No Comments
The 8th edition of the We Need More Cowbell cyclocross race – Name TBD will take place Sunday September 28th, at the usual spot of Burgoyne Woods Park in St. Catharines. This year’s course will be the same as last years, provided that my memory holds up for 3 more weeks; my kids may cause major course changes if they keep hounding me. However, this year’s race is the first O-Cup CX race and will adhere to OCA course standards – that is no triple downhill barriers or random singletrack.

The Ontario Cycling Association is pleased to announce the first 2 camps for the 2014-2015 “Rising Stars” Endurance Development Academy. The track program is designed to support Ontario athletes that have the potential and ambition of making it onto an Olympic podium in the future.
Once the Milton Velodrome opens it will become the home of the Rising Stars program and all the athletes will have regular access to training at the new facility. The Rising Stars Academy will focus on athlete identification and development. Our goal is to reach over 200 athletes in the 2014/15 season, focusing on athletes between the ages of 13 and 18.
