Masters Road Nationals Returns to Victoria in 2024 | Updates to National Calendar


Cycling Canada has recently announced exciting new additions and updates to the 2024 national calendar of events after its initial unveiling in September.

“Building a national events calendar in Canada has many layers of complexity but we continue to work towards making progress in our offerings year after year,” said Jolène Dupuis, Cycling Canada Events and Officials Manager. “We strive to meet growing demands by working closely with all partners, including our Provincial/Territorial Sport Organizations and expanding pool of organizers, to determine the feasibility and sustainability of new initiatives. After successfully implementing new changes in 2023, we’re thrilled to announce more this year with new events, new titles and overall updates that we’ve put in place for the 2024 season.”

The following Canadian Championships have been newly approved for organizer, date and location:

  • 2024 Canadian Masters Road Championships: July 5-7, Victoria, BC (Wheelhouse Cycling Society)

  • 2024 Canadian Cyclo-cross Championships: Nov. 16-17, Lévis, QC (CX418)

Mountain Bike Calendar

Canada Cup mountain bike racers can expect a more competitive season in 2024 with changes made to the Canada Cup points allocation. To align with the UCI’s approach, seeding runs will be hosted for all categories at each round of the 2024 Canada Cup downhill (DH) series, with bonus points allocated to the fastest ten finishers. In addition, elevated points will be awarded at the final stops of both the cross-country Olympic (XCO) and DH series. The Canada Cup points allocation tables will be updated in the Canada Cup Regulations and Cycling Canada’s Companion Guide in the new year.

Furthermore, DH will include new official categories for U17 Men Expert and U17 Women. Both categories will join the Juniors and Elites chasing for the leaders’ jerseys and points throughout the season.

The 2024 Canadian Enduro Championships, originally scheduled for July 28, is postponed due to host withdrawal. Event organizers interested in bidding for the event should contact

Cyclo-cross Calendar

Cycling Canada is excited to start the 2024 cyclo-cross season with the return of the Western Cyclo-cross Challenge in Canmore, AB, on Sept. 14. Information regarding additional Challenge events will be shared as it becomes available. Should organizers be interested in hosting the Eastern, Atlantic, or Pacific Cyclo-cross Challenge events, please contact

The 2024 Canadian Cyclo-Cross Championships will be moving east to Lévis on Nov. 16-17, which will wrap up the domestic calendar.

Also continuing in 2024 will be the successful National Ranking Series, which was established in 2022 to continue the development of a national cyclo-cross calendar while building an improved call-up mechanism at the Canadian Championships for all categories.

Track Calendar

The 2024 Day of the Hour will once again have its place on the track calendar, returning to Milton, ON, on Aug. 24. An event dedicated to hour record attempts (world or Canadian records), this track cycling event provides athletes the opportunity to test themselves for the record books while all competition logistics are taken care of by The Hour Team. More information, including event applications and additional resources, will be available on the event webpage in the new year.

Esports Update

Leading into the 2024 Canadian Esports Championships, Cycling Canada will be extending their virtual offerings by hosting a three-part race series on Zwift called “Canada vs. the World”. This series will include a race on the Canadian Championships course a week in advance to allow riders to familiarize themselves ahead of the competition. The series results will not only track Canadian athletes by age group for the official standings but also how the top Canadian results compare to fellow international competitors with category offerings reflecting those of the Canadian Championships. More information will be available on the event webpage.
