GOLDEN World Cup Team Pursuit

Bayley was part of the 5 man squad earning Canada’s FIRST-EVER Gold Medal Win in the Men’s Team Pursuit, at the Track Cycling World Cup,  in Apeldoorn, Netherlands.

This victory,  together with their Bronze Medal performance at World Cup #1  (in Glasgow last week),  moves Canada into the overall lead in the World Cup standings, AND qualifies them for the 2017 World Championships, to be held in Hong Kong, in April.

Bayley was interviewed after the win and quoted saying: “We’ve got five guys here who can execute, so we are using everyone to have some fresh legs for each ride.  This was my first trip with the team, and the first ride I got to do was in Glasgow for the bronze medal.  It was nerve-wracking but we executed it that day and then we were able to come here and do it again.  I can’t even put it into words, really.  The time was good; we looked at the past times here when the world championships were here in 2011 and the winning team was a high 4:01, so we are pretty happy with our time.”

Incredible, consistent performances by Bayley Simpson, Adam Jamieson, Aidan Caves, Jay Lamoureux, and Ed Veal! Congratulations on continuing to make Canada so proud!
