The National Cycling Centre – Atlantic Canada was developed and saw the daylight in the spring of 2001. The impact of the Centre was immediate and the goal was somewhat surprising in the Atlantic cycling community: the develop Olympians.
The approach was also something new and different. With the many organizations being led to what members and administrators want, the Centre would propose a new approach to sport:
This philosophy enabled the Centre to focus totally on what the athletes needed; these service being offered by a professional coach. The administration of the Centre, the Management Committee, offers the coach its full support to accomplish very specific goals and objectives.
Before this, Atlantic Canadians had very limited successes on the national and international scene. With the exception of 3 riders, the past 10 years were marked by one rider, Peter Wedge. By himself, this riders collected 7 national championship podiums (he would collect three more titles after 2001), and had been on the national team program since 1992.
His status enabled the coaching staff to exemplify the true template of a champion. The young riders now knew what a real champion should be like, the angular item of a successful program.
