One of Manitoba's cycling legends has passed away.
Born in 1924, Erick Oland Sr. was a three-time Canadian cycling champion — in 1947 and 1949 as a one-mile racer and in 1950 in the 100-kilometre championship. He was dominant in the provincial cycling scene throughout his racing career until his retirement at age 27.
Among a long list of accomplishments, Oland went on to serve as president of the Manitoba Cycling Association from 1968 to 1970 and as director of the Canadian Cycling Association from 1979 to 1981. He was inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame in 1985.
