The Accent Inns Russ Hay’s Cycling Team presented by Scotiabank has announced today its Team roster and new partnerships for the 2015 Racing Season.

“Every year, we seem to raise the bar of excellence,” explains Jon Watkin, General Manager, “In 2014 we won 50 races had over 100 top ten finishes. We took the BC Provincial Road and Criterium titles, and had two top ten placements in the National TT Champs in Quebec.  In 2015, we plan to continue to produce breakthrough results, but with a stronger focus on major criterium and circuit races.”

Victoria’s Jordan Landolt, who is the reigning 2014 BC Time Trial Champion, joins the team as a relative newcomer to the sport, but with 2014 results that most experienced racers would be envious of.   “After seeing the success this team had last year, I’m looking forward to being a part of it and doing what I can to contribute as well. I look forward to riding with experienced guys like Cody and Curtis who have had great success at the top level and learning some of their tricks of the trade.”

The big news for the 2015 is the addition of former pro racer and 2012 Canadian National Criterium Champion, Ben Chaddock as the team’s new Director Sportif.  After a pro racing career with pro teams Exergy, SmartStop, and Louis Garneau/Quebecor, the Whistler BC native made the decision to wind down his racing for 2015 and focus on giving back to the BC cycling community, while also ramping up his coaching business, Toque Coaching.  “It is time to focus on new dreams and I’m really excited to start this journey by sharing my alpine skiing and cycling experiences with the Russ Hay’s crew next season.” says Ben.
