Ottawa, ON (Aug. 28, 2023) – The Canadian National Cycling Team concluded five days of racing at the 2023 UCI Junior Track World Championships in Cali, COL, held from Aug. 23-27.

With 10 athletes selected to compete across endurance and sprint events, the maple leaf had a strong presence with three medals won, including a World Champion and a new Canadian record. 

The Men’s Team Pursuit set the tone early, with Ethan Powell, Charles Bergeron, Kaden Colling, Albert Taylor and Justin Roy establishing a new Canadian record in the event, earning the first Canadian medal of the weekend with the bronze. Powell went on to win his first-ever World Champion title in the Men Points Race after lapping the field twice. On Aug. 26, sprinter Cole Dempster breezed through the qualifying heats to win the Men Sprint bronze medal against Nicolas Olivera Madrid of Columbia in a nail-biting finish.

“It has been a fantastic learning experience for Canada’s up-and-coming athletes,” said Coach Kinley Gibson. “These results are a testament to the people and teams that support these athletes on a year-round basis. My favourite part of the past few weeks has been watching the team come together – the pit atmosphere has been wonderfully positive through the highs and lows of racing. These juniors showed grit, camaraderie, and incredible support for one another.”

Other Canadians results to note are the Women’s Team Pursuit, comprised of Nora Linton, Anabelle Thomas, Taylor Tompkins and Anika Brants finishing in sixth position, while Brants crossed the line in fourth place in the Women Scratch Race.
