Cycling Canada on Sept. 13 announced those who have been selected to represent Canada at the UCI Road World Championships in Limburg, the Netherlands.

Among those chosen to what Cycling Canada is hailing as one of the country’s strongest teams for the event is Courtenay’s Nigel Ellsay.

“In men’s junior action, both Canadian champions in the Road and Time Trial men junior races, Chris Prendergast (Winnipeg) and Nigel Ellsay (Courtenay), are also expected to be on the start lines in the Netherlands,” Cycling Canada stated in a press release.

“…Canada will be represented by some young riders who have excelled at national and international races this season,” Cycling Canada noted.

The event starts Sept. 16 with the newly added Team Time Trial race for professional cycling teams, and closes Sept. 23 with the marquee Elite Men Road Race.

“We have more depth than ever to select our teams for major international events. This is a great sign that cycling in Canada is moving in the right direction, and is growing rapidly in popularity. The team we have is experienced competing against the best in the world. We are travelling to Limburg to be competitive and have a shot at winning,” said Gord Fraser, who will be heading the Elite Men team at this event.
