Will RoutleyWill Routley (Road Cyclist)

"Will was one of the most dedicated and well-respected riders in the North American Peloton" (Rally Cycling, 2016 after his retirement). As a pro Will competed in two Commonwealth Games; won the King of the Mountains (and Stage 4) at the 2014 Amgen Tour of California, was the 2010 Canadian National Road Champ; and was 2nd overall in GP Liberty (Portugal) with a stage victory. Will was known for his outspokenness against doping in sport, challenging those who said "it was part of the sport" by saying that "all cyclists have a choice". He spoke up in the middle of his career, not caring about the consequences – too many cyclists were afraid to say anything (until their careers finished), and young athletes were being led to believe "it was part of the sport". Will Routley has been a true competitor & outstanding role model in endurance sport.
