2012 BC Cup Team Competition

New for 2012 Cycling BC will be introducing two levels of Team competition at BC Cup provincial events: Factory and Trophy teams.  We are looking to ramp up the team competition and get everyone involved in the fun.

Factory teams will be made up from athletes on a team roster and will be competing for money and year-end provincial team title.  Trophy teams are made up on the day with 5 athletes making a team.  They will compete for a trophy of the day.

Factory teams do not need to have sponsorship or support, they can be made up of any 5 to 10 athletes.  We have also added the opportunity for factory teams to pick up a Novice or Intermediate athlete for an event.  This athlete can be on the team for one or several events.

Create or join a team and get in on the excitement!
