Giana Roberge: Getting to know Cylance Pro Cycling

Wait, is it only November? Why was I worried about a training camp? I had organized and managed well over 15 in my life. Why was I concerned about this one? Maybe it was because, in all my years working as a manger and director, I had never assembled a team camp so early in the pre-season. Maybe it was because I had been out of the professional cycling world for over five years. Maybe it was because I didn't personally know our staff or our athletes, save for one. Or, it could be that I was asking our athletes to leave their bikes behind for a week, even though some had a World Track race the day after they returned to Europe. The combination of all the unknowns left me with a stomach full of knots, and nothing to rely on but what I know best – my knowledge of how to run a team and how to meet athletes' needs.
