Three-time Canadian Olympian Tanya Dubnicoff is taking a new job as the coach of a club in California. She's leaving her post at the Canadian National Cycling Centre in Calgary.

"I have been at the Oval for seven years and I think it was time for a change to re-motivate myself," the 39-year-old Dubnicoff, a former sprint World Champion, told CanadianCyclist.com. "It just sprung up, really." She was invited by former World Champion Connie Paraskevin to coach at the Home Depot Velodrome in Los Angeles.

She will coach riders as young as 12-years-old, but she hopes to keep her ties to Canadian athletes by inviting them down for training camps.

Dubnicoff retired in 2000 after nine national, four Pan American and two Commonwealth Games titles.
