Cycling Canada to Host Canadian Esports Championships
Ottawa, ON (February 8, 2023) –Cycling Canada is excited to announce that the second edition of the Canadian Esports Championships will take place on Feb. 11-12, 2023, on the Wahoo RGT virtual cycling platform.
Hosted in collaboration with USA Cycling, the 2023 Canadian Esports Championships presented by Echelon Racing Promotions marks the first collaboration between the two national cycling federations.
“We are thrilled to return with the second edition of our Canadian Esports Championships,” said Josh Peacock, Director of Marketing & Events at Cycling Canada. “Working alongside both USA Cycling and Echelon Racing Promotions has given us the ability to amplify this event to a whole new level, all while offering Canadian Champion titles across a variety of age classes.”
Titles will be awarded across 24 categories, from Juniors to Masters, with the recent addition of para-cycling categories. All athletes will be racing on the Dirty Reiver course, with over 18 kilometres of steady climbs, a long descent, a twisting flat section, and an uphill sprint for the line.
“Thanks to the ongoing work of Wahoo RGT and Echelon Racing Promotions, we have the opportunity to host a full range of para-cycling categories for the first time at this event,” continued Josh Peacock. “We look forward to continuing to support their efforts in enhancing representation of all athletes with disabilities in the future.”
