Abbott Leads the Way in the West
Canadian Sport Institute Calgary – There is a new para cycling program on the block – the NextGen Para Cycling-West program – launched recently by Cycling Canada. In tandem with its eastern counterpart, led by Guillaume Plourde, this program will be headed up by long-time cyclig coach Phil Abbott.
Abbott, who has been a high-performance cycling coach at CSI Calgary since 2009, was recently appointed as the new NextGen Para Cycling Coach-West, and will oversee the program in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon and Northwest Territories.
Calgary will be the hub city and the program will operate in partnership with CSI Calgary, Own the Podium, the Alberta Cycling Association and the Canadian Paralympic Committee.
