Design #12 will become the suit for the Canadian World/Pan Am Team and will undergo modifications to meet the teams’ requirements. The final version will be posted at a later date.
Design #20 will become what is called the Official Canada suit. It has already been given some finishing touches, including the application of elements from Design #4, a very popular design in the competition. You can see the final version of the Official Canada suit below:
This suit will be available for sale at Il Peloton, including on the website, starting in March 2008. Matching jerseys and shorts will also be available a little later on in the season. Anyone who wishes to represent Canada while racing or skating anywhere in the world now has the ability to do so. Proceeds from the sale of this clothing will be donated by Il Peloton to support the athletes on the 2008 Canadian World Team.
Once again, a huge thank you to all of the people who contributed, promoted, visited, and voted. It has been a fantastic experience and everyone involved is very proud to have been part of Design Canada!
Your Design Canada! Team
