The Canadian Sprint Team had a few days break and then it was back to racing. This time in Grenchen, Switzerland at the Tissot Velodrome for the Track Cycling Challenge 2017.
Wednesday, December 20th was a day of Men Elite sprinting. Stefan steadily raced all day starting with the second fastest qualifying time to ending the day in fourth place after racing against Grégory Bauge of France in the Bronze medal match. It was an excellent day of racing for Stefan and one can watch the races by clicking here.
