I received the best news last week! I was selected to represent Oiselle on their Oiselle Voleé team for 2013/2014!
Not only have I admired the beautiful gear that Oiselle makes, I’ve really appreciated the amazing and encouraging group of women they have representing them. Oiselle truly want to advance women in sport and do it in the best way possible as they build their team. Just check out their manifesto! When I heard that they were accepting applications for their 2013/2014 team I knew I had to apply. After meeting many Oiselle birds at Ragnar Northwest Passage (including my wonderful van mate Nicole) I held my breath. They were all such great women who cheered me on and I was really hoping I would get to be their teammate one day. I will always remember Lauren leaning out her van window as I was struggling on my very hot first leg, yelling “We believe in youuuuuuu!!!!” When the e-mail came in on Thursday that I made the team I had to rub my eyes and reread the e-mail several times just to make sure. I feel so honoured to join a group of such wonderful and talented women.
I’m really looking forward to the coming year and to representing Oiselle out on the road and at the races! Thank you for choosing this Canuck to help spread the Oiselle word up north!
