BTG is thrilled to welcome Shimano Canada as collaborator for the next two years

BTG has evolved since its inception in 2012. The work of the Fund has expanded, the founders and original directors have retired from their international pro careers. This has created the opportunity for the Fund to explore new ways of working to support Canada’s most promising young developing cyclists. Challenging times mean the work of BTG is as important now as it was in 2012, perhaps even more important. It is incredibly rewarding to see the Fund’s work getting noticed.

The Directors, Mentors and Advisors of the Fund are thrilled to announce Shimano Canada is an organization that noticed. Shimano will join forces with Global Relay to be a principal corporate contributor & collaborator.

We were honored when BTG reached out to us with this opportunity to partner with them in this unique and exciting endeavour. Canada is in need of such a development fund, specifically designed to support key cycling initiatives that will assist some of our country’s most promising cyclists with the ability to showcase their talents on the International stage. We’re extremely hopeful that through the establishment of this fund, along with the combined efforts in the development and management of the initiatives it supports, Canada’s emerging athletes will be provided with a clear path and more opportunities in their quest to reach the highest levels of professional cycling.
– Bill Scullion, Managing Director Shimano Canada

Shimano’s contributions will support BTG work in girls & women’s cycling as well as “special Project” working to support Canada’s junior and U23 riders in their journeys to the top of the sport. BTG is excited to kick of the collaboration with our first #conversation in 2022. #watchthisspace for more stories of how we’re working with Shimano to make cycling awesome.
