5th Edition of the Western Track Challenge Cancelled

The Burnaby Velodrome Club has made the hard decision to cancel the 5th edition of the Western Track Challenge. The event which was scheduled for January 15-17, 2021, was initially postponed due to the second wave of COVID-19 which caused significant restrictions on training, racing, and travel. At that time, the event was targeted for March or possibly May of 2021. Unfortunately, the pandemic continues to restrict activities in British Columbia, our neighbouring provinces, and northwestern US states.

At this time, a decision had to be made so that everyone could move on to their next target event. The Burnaby Velodrome Club thanks everyone for their continued support and looks forward to hosting the Western Track Challenge in 2022.
