Help me get to Mountain Bike World Championships

I'm excited to announce that I have been selected to the National Team to race for Team Canada at the upcoming Mountain Bike World Championships in Val di Sole, Italy, from August 25-29, 2021.

For the past 2 years, it has been my goal to qualify for the World Championships but due to Covid, all races were cancelled. Throughout the pandemic I continued training and staying focused and working on all the parts of my performance.

2020 we waited and watched as races were cancelled one by one but I took that opportunity to continue training, waiting to race again. In 2021, after a few cancellations and postponements we finally got an opportunity in Quebec in July. My results from the two Canada Cup races in Quebec (3rd, and 2nd and now the overall Canada Cup series leader in Junior) have allowed me to qualify for Worlds! Currently I am ranked 10th on the world rankings in Junior Men XCO category which you can find on the UCI website.

I am reaching out to my local community, friends and family to assist with the funding of a trip of a lifetime. The funding will help cover the significant costs associated with flights, hotels, meals, logistics, fees, tests, emergency repairs, etc. I would greatly appreciate your support towards these costs.

This is an amazing opportunity to race for Canada! I am very grateful for my family, community, friends, coaches, volunteers and other supporters who have helped me get to where I am and continue further.

Sincerely,

Cole
