For the second year in a row, the Friends of Canadian Cyclo-cross Racers is asking the cycling community to visit their page and help send the men and women who represent Canada to the World Cyclo-cross Championships.

As Cyclo-cross is not an Olympic sport, the Canadian Cycling Association doesn't provide any funding for the National Cyclo-cross Team, meaning riders must cover their own airfare, accommodations, meals, equipment expenses and even their national team jerseys. The Friends have seen the commitment that it has taken for these riders to qualify and get there and we want to help them along by taking some of the financial burden off of their shoulders, allowing them to focus on their racing and representing Canada at 'Cross Worlds in Treviso.
