Vaudreuil-Soulanges Welcomes Canadian BMX Championships

BMX athletes from across the country are expected in Vaudreuil-Soulanges, Quebec, on July 6 for the Canadian BMX Racing Championships.

Held in Quebec for the second year running, the event will host races in the challenge category where close to 600 athletes, ranging in age from 5 to 49, will race for medals, while athletes in the Junior, U23 and Elite categories will race for official championship titles.

“After the success of the 2022 Canada Cup here, it was the next logical step to organize the Canadian Championships,” commented Karyne Brodeur, president of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges BMX club. “We want to give young people the opportunity to perform in a national-level competition, in addition to raising the profile of our sport.”

Ryan Tougas (elite men), Thomas Jodoin (U23 men) and Keira Murphy (U23 women) will be on hand to try and claim the Canadian championship title for the second year running.

Absent due to her preparation for the Olympic Games, Molly Simpson will pass the torch to a new racer who will be in with a chance of capturing the title of Canadian champion in the elite women’s category, while her compatriot Teigen Pascual will be a strong contender for the position.

On Sunday, July 7, athletes will race in the first round of the 2024 BMX Canada Cup series.
