After conducting extensive consultation with athletes and PTAs cycling Cycling Cycling Canada is pleased to announce the launch of the program Race Clean OWN YOUR VICTORY . This program, run by athletes, completes the program to the Natural Roll Winners of the Quebec Cycling Federation, which has been very successful, and that the Federation is implementing in the province, through its provincial team to opportunity for national and international events.
The logo program Race Clean OWN YOUR VICTORY was designed and developed by graphic designer Kathryn Jamieson-Lega, Edmonton. It symbolizes the commitment of Canadian cyclists to drug free sport. Its formulation therefore has a very deep and personal meaning.
Race Clean (“Running” clean “) : These words directly address the topic of sportsmanship and sport “clean”, recognizing its importance and obligation of the riders to respect the rules. We hope that all Canadian athletes follow the rules, and in particular abstain from consuming prohibited substances or resorting to prohibited practices.
OWN YOUR VICTORY (“Appropriate sure your victory”) : With these words, we hope to promote in athletes stronger internal and personal motivation to sport “clean.” We hope that all athletes will attempt to reach their personal goals and get the victories they seek, without drugs, regardless of their level: club racing to the Olympics. We also hope they fully appropriated by their victories, to fully enjoy the results of their hard work and dedication. We want to avoid at all costs, their victories or successes “ring hollow” because it is due to cheating or doping. Whatever their achievements, we want athletes to be proud of their results, and they never have to wonder what they could have succeeded only by themselves. Riders like Tara Whitten, Svein Tuft, Catharine Pendrel, Geoff Kabush, Zach Bell, Erinne Willock, and many others, are living proof that there are no limits to what can be achieved in sports at the highest level.

It’s so much more rewarding to reach the podium knowing that should this success that hard work and dedication of all times, as well as a desire to continually learn and improve. I hope that the message of “Race Clean Own Your Victory” program will help to inspire this generation and the next generation of cyclists, and to motivate them to decide to pursue their goals with confidence. ” Geoff Kabush [SCOTT-3 Rox Racing]

We must be convinced that sport and competition can exist in a free and honest context of any drug. By adopting this common position, we can strengthen our resolve and know that everything we do as members of the national team is not only honest, but obtained without using any drugs. And if we can do without drugs, young athletes understand that ANY athlete can win without resorting to drugs. ” Zach Bell [Team SmartStop]
