Velo NB is proud to acknowledge the efforts of Matt Kinnie at the Defi Sportif AlterGo para-cycling event in Montreal. The hand-cycling event took place on the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, on Ile Notre-Dame. Matt competed in both the Time Tiral, and the Road Race in the H2 category. He finished 4th overall in the road race, and 10th in the TT. The trip to AlterGo also netted some big personal goals for Matt.
Had a great time trial, made my goal. Needed 27.4kph to make development standard and I got 30.6kph. Pumped! – Matt
Matt has now qualified for Cycling Canada’s NextGen Para-Cycling program. The goal of the program is to transfer athletes to High Performance Development in order to compete at the highest international level by integrating them on the para-cycling National Team.
