As an­other sea­son gets un­der­way, the road ahead for Cana­dian rid­ers across all dis­ci­plines looks bright. This past year was one for the record books as mile­stones were on order, from Catharine Pen­drel’s and the women’s Team Pur­suit Olympic bronze medals, to Ste­fan Rit­ter’s Kilo gold at the Ju­nior Track Worlds, to Finn­ley Isle’s Ju­nior DH Worlds title and World Cup over­all title, to Tris­tan Ch­er­nove’s three Par­a­lympic medals and the team’s record nine medals, to Leah Kirch­mann’s sec­ond place in the Pro road women’s over­all rank­ings, to the men’s Team Pur­suit stun­ning Track World Cup gold and first-ever sub-four-minute re­sult. There are too many to list in these his­toric times, as our Cana­dian ath­letes con­tinue to raise the bar in tes­ti­mony to their tal­ent and the fab­u­lous sup­port crews be­hind the he­roes, in­clud­ing fam­ily, friends and fans. We salute you all in your quest for more suc­cess in 2017 and be­yond. - BAS
