The NDCFC and the 2007 National DH cycling team is making history this month! The team is facing the reality of having no funding! The Canadian Cycling Association will offer no direct funding to the downhill cycling discipline which is in line with the levels of funding the CCA receives from Sport Canada – the protocol is to support Olympic sports and downhill cycling is not an Olympic sport.

Micayla Gatto

With 10 members on the National DH Team and no funding, manager/coach Chris Colbeck and the athletes have come up with a way to help themselves and the future of the sport! All are trying to travel to the biggest event of the year, the 2007 World Mountain Bike Championships in Fort William, Scotland September 8/9.

Chris Colbeck manager/coach of the 2007 National DH cycling team and former member himself is heading up the National Downhill Cycling Foundation of Canada “NDCFC”. “I will not sit back and watch the athletes struggle year after year after year financially! It paralyzes the future growth of the sport” We have organized a major fundraiser in Vancouver, BC to help the athletes.
