New and Returning Champion Don the Maple Leaf Jersey at the 2024 Canadian BMX Championships

More than 600 athletes challenged themselves in Vaudreuil-Soulanges, QC, for the Canadian BMX Championships, held on July 6.

Under a blazing sun, athletes took part in two exciting days of competition with the Canadian Championships on Saturday, followed by the first round of the Canada Cup on Sunday.

Ryan Tougas of Pitt Meadows, B.C., was the only athlete to retain the Canadian Elite Men’s title he won in 2023, with the other categories all crowning a new champion, including Teigen Pascual of Squamish, B.C., who captured her first Canadian Elite Women’s title. In the U23 category, Albertans Dylan Tremel and Abygale Reeve made no secret of their pride, having long dreamed of wearing the maple-leaf jersey.

“Out of the gate I was nervous,” said Tremel. “I knew I had to stay calm and confident. It was crazy to cross the finish line, with all my family and friends there. I have wanted to get the sleeve for the past four years and it means the absolute world to me.”

Reeve added, “I was crying tears of joy. It just means a lot to represent this country and to represent my club in Airdrie and all the kids that I coach back there.”

Quebecers Thessalie Bruneau and Victoria Dubé crossed the finish line nose-to-nose in the junior women’s race, but in the end, it was Bruneau who took the honors. Ontario’s Andrew Colling took the men’s title. In addition to the Championship classes, medals were awarded in Challenge classes for age group racing from as young as 5 years old.
