15 Podiums at 2022 Canadian Road Championships (Elite/JR/Para) for Ontario

For the first time since 2010, the Nationals are back in Edmonton, AB. A weekend out west full of road races through Edmonton, Alberta’s capital city, ended with a big success for Ontario as Michael Foley added a Gold medal to the collection by winning the criterium on Monday afternoon.

While Team Ontario arrived a couple of days earlier to set up camp in the country’s oil capital, the goal was set – getting back into road racing after two years of a break, preparing for the upcoming Canadian Summer Games and bringing home some hardware.
