ANTOINE DUCHESNE CAREER-BEST 10TH
In May, Canada’s Antoine Duchesne (Groupama-FDJ) claimed the best WorldTour result of his career, finishing 10th on Stage Two at the Tour de Romandie. The Quebec rider has been on fire lately, as he was in the five-rider break one day prior on Stage One before the break was caught near the end of the stage. This followed another previous break attempt at the 200.4km Scheldeprijs in April. Prior to that, he was in a six-rider break on Stage Four at Tirreno-Adriatico in Italy in March.
In February, the Ontario Cycling Association (OCA) hired Joseph Veloce to the new full-time position of lead coach of its high-performance track programs. Over the past two years, Veloce has had a part-time contract, coaching their Track Sprint Programs (high-performance and development).
As a former National Team athlete and Olympian, Veloce brings years of high-performance experience and an understanding of the steps that athletes must take to reach the highest levels.
Veloce will also continue his role coaching the Track Sprint Programs.
