Ottawa, ON (March 17, 2022) – Cycling Canada is pleased to announce that tickets for the Tissot UCI Track Nations Cup, scheduled from May 12-15, are officially on sale via the Mattamy National Cycling Centre website. Tickets will be available for Thursday and Friday evening sessions, as well as daytime and evening sessions on Saturday and Sunday, with multiple types of tickets being offered including event passes, family passes, and much more.
The event is set to showcase some of Canada’s biggest cycling stars, including Olympic Sprint gold medallist Kelsey Mitchell and Olympic Keirin bronze medallist, Lauriane Genest, among many others. Athletes will be competing in all six Olympic events (Sprint, Keirin, Team Sprint, Team Pursuit, Omnium & Madison), as well as the Scratch Race, Elimination Race, Individual Pursuit and Time Trial over four days of racing.
“I’m really looking forward to competing in front of a home crowd,” said Genest. “This will be my first race on home soil since winning bronze at the Olympic Games last summer, and I’m confident Team Canada will be ready to bring its A-game!”
The organizing committee will be looking to recruit over 150 volunteers for various positions between May 8 and May 16 in areas such as access control, ticketing, accreditation, transportation and more. Volunteers must be at least 15 years of age and available for a minimum of 2 shifts.
