The Canadian cyclo-cross team has extended the deadline for donations to help their team pay for the trip to the 'cross world championships in Belgium to January 22nd. While the team has raised $2600 to date, they are still far short of their goal of $4,000 (or $500 per rider).

Most of the Canadian team, consisting of Mike Garrigan, Kyle Douglas, Tara Ross, Greg Reain, Aaron Schooler, Shaun Adamson, Spencer Smitheman and Brian Robinson are already in Belgium, but have had to dip into their personal funds to pay for the trip, since the Canadian Cycling Association did not provide financial support for cyclo-cross. The team has arranged for affordable housing at the Cycling Center in Belgium for Worlds at the end of the month, but still must pay for their own airfare, food, lodging and even their team jerseys.
