Both Oliver and Willem started cycling in MCA’s grassroots, Kids of Mud Program. Oliver with the Wolseley Wheels club in Winnipeg and Willem with Portage La Prairie’s Junk Yard Dogs club. Danick has been cycling with Team Manitoba for just 2 years and is a member of the Woodcock Cycle Works club. All have accomplished tremendous success in a very short time-frame with the support of their coaches, families, team mates, and the cycling community as a whole. Their determination, hard work, and dedication to the sport have paid off and we couldn’t be more proud of the great ambassadors they are for our Sport and the province of Manitoba.
