Canada's Cervelo Cycles a major player in Tour de France, Olympics
TORONTO — Some of the fastest legs in the world will pedal Canadian-made bikes in both the Tour de France and at the Olympic Games this summer.
This is the sixth year of the Tour that the bottoms of the multi-national Team CSC will be on bikes designed by Toronto's Cervelo Cycles. The 95th Tour de France opens Saturday in Brest, France. The 21-stage, 3,500-kilometre race ends July 27 in Paris.
CSC Saxo Bank includes previous stage winners Fabian Cancellera of Spain, Jens Voigt of Germany and perennial contender Carlos Sastre of Spain.
The Canadian men's triathlon team - Paul Tichelaar, Colin Jenkins and gold medallist Simon Whitfield - will be on Cervelo bikes in the Olympic Games. World champion Javier Gomez of Spain will also be on a Cervelo in Beijing.
