Summer 2019

Axel Merckx Youth Development Foundation and Red Devils Cycling Academy present the Red Devils Cycling Academy Sportif, a mass participation cycling event, Sunday September 8th

Dear sir/madam

We invite you to donate a draw prize for the 2nd annual Red Devils Cycling Academy Sportif to show your support for Youth Cycling in Kelowna.

The Red Devils Cycling Academy Sportif is a new community mass participation cycling event with routes and distances that appeal to a broad range of cycling enthusiasts. The event will feature onsite bbq, beer garden, music, retail, vendors and bike skills challenges.

The event is a fundraiser for the Axel Merckx Youth Development Foundation, a not-for-Profit society, and its successful youth cycling club the Red Devils Cycling Academy in Kelowna.  Funds raised will go to ongoing coach training and offsetting operation costs.

Red Devils Cycling Academy is now the largest youth cycling program in the Province (70 Members and 20 coaches for 2019), while offering the lowest program fees. With your support of this event, we can build this program and event into a sustainable youth cycling organization.

While our Red Devils Cycling Academy program is a grassroots youth cycling skills  program, we have graduated athletes to the National stage. For 2019, we had a Red Devils graduate win the Canadian national Junior men’s time trial, and will now be representing Canada at the World Championships.

Axel Merckx Youth Development Foundation also operates the Axel Merckx Youth Cycling Series.  This is a 3 day cycling camp that brings coaches and athletes from BC, Alberta and the Yukon together for 3 days and has been running since 2011 seeing hundreds of youth attend.

We are anticipating participation of 160 adults and 40 youth for the 2019 edition of the Red Devils Cycling Academy Sportif. Show the Kelowna cycling community your support for the youth cyclists of Kelowna by becoming a sponsor. Please see the following page for your options.
