Young Canadian 'crossers in the Netherlands

Two Under-23 riders from Canada and their coach – racer Tim Heemskerk – will be joining Dutch team, Team Jan Terpstra, for part of this season as a project to encourage young Canadian racers coming through the ranks. Brian Robinson and Andrew Thomas, two riders within TTP (Tim's Training Program), will travel with Tim Heemskerk to the Netherlands and race in the lead up to the World Championships in Hoogerheide.

The idea of this project started about a year ago between Team Jan Terpstra and Tim Heemskerk and will officially commence this December until February 2009. "Canada House in Holland" will provide these Canadian cyclo-crossers with all the required facilities, technical guidance, race equipment (Ridley Bikes) and rider development and experience of racing 'cross at the highest level in international 'cross races in the Netherlands and Belgium.
