Cycling Canada Cyclisme – (Calgary, AB – August 24, 2016) Canada’s top BMX riders, including two-time Olympian and 12-time Canadian Champion Tory Nyhaug, are set to compete for the coveted Canadian titles this weekend at the 2016 Canadian BMX Championships in Calgary, Alberta.
The Calgary BMX track has been revamped since hosting the 2015 Canada Cup BMX Finals last year, setting the table for a great weekend of competition.
The Time Trial will kick start things on Friday night, followed on Saturday by the BMX motos for all categories. On Sunday, riders will compete in the 2016 Canada Cup BMX Finals, where the series Champion will be crowned.
Josh Peacock, Competition Coordinator at Cycling Canada, is excited about the event: “We are extremely pleased with how the event is shaping up. We are expecting a large participation from BMXers coming from all over Canada. We saw a glimpse of the excitement and popularity of BMX in Western Canada and Alberta last year with the 2015 Canada Cup BMX Finals, and this year should be even better.”
The event holds significant importance for the BMX community as it represents a selection criterion for anyone who want to compete at the 2017 UCI BMX World Championships in Rockhill, South Carolina. The Top 8 of each challenge class automatically qualifies for the selection pool.
All race information can be found in the Technical Guide, found here.
The event will be televised live across Alberta and the Interior BC on ShawTV, as well as web streamed for all BMX fans to catch the action.
