Cy­cling Canada is in­vest­ing in the next gen­er­a­tion of Olympic con­tenders with the hir­ing of a Women’s Nex­tGen Track En­durance Coach and an As­sis­tant Sprint Coach.

Jenny Trew will con­tinue the work that was pre­vi­ously started by Cam Jen­nings in the Women’s Nex­tGen Track En­durance Coach po­si­tion. Her role will be to iden­tify and pre­pare fe­male track en­durance rid­ers to grad­u­ate into the Olympic Per­for­mance Pool, led by Craig Grif­fin.

The women’s Track En­durance Pro­gram has con­sis­tently won Olympic and world cham­pi­onship medals since London in 2012.

Trew’s ex­pe­ri­ence in both road and track cy­cling with both the On­tario Cy­cling As­so­ci­a­tion and Cy­clery4i­iii will be an as­set in her role to in­crease the tal­ent pool of fu­ture Olympians for medal po­ten­tial at Paris 2024 and Los An­ge­les 2028.

The Track Sprint Pro­gram will also ben­e­fit from the hir­ing of coach Franck Durivaux who worked as a de­vel­op­ment track sprint coach at the French Cy­cling Fed­er­a­tion (FFC) for sev­eral years. Durivaux will work closely with Cy­cling Canada’s sprint head coach to im­prove the skills of our De­vel­op­ment Per­for­mance Pool of rid­ers, while col­lab­o­rat­ing with Jesse Korf, Path­way De­vel­op­ment Man­ager, to cre­ate more ini­tia­tives to de­tect sprint tal­ent across to the coun­try.
