Update for Race Organizers and Riders

Cycling BC is pleased to announce the creation of a province-wide points system that will bring together all levels of events to support a cumulative ranking and upgrade system. From local weekly races to National Championships, Cycling BC will be tabulating and tracking athletes from youth to masters to grow and evolve the sport of cycling.

“It’s long been the plan of Cycling BC to introduce a province wide, systematic approach to cycling events and points collected, we’re very happy this development occurred in time for the 2016 Escape Velocity Spring Series. While the changes are significant, it’s an organic process and we’re looking forward to constructive feedback as the year progresses.” commented Jim Richards, Executive Director at Cycling BC. The reasons behind the changes, and behind defining the standards is to help organizers and participants alike understand the levels of service expected at each of the events, to create a provincial network, and to attract new clubs and athletes to the events.
