Event Information

Cycling BC and Cycling Canada invite you to attend our inaugural Cyclocross Advancement Camp on January 10-11th, 2021, at Jordi Lunn Bike Park in Victoria (postponed from original Nov. 29-30 dates as of Nov. 19).

This camp will help you develop the skills necessary to participate in future Cycling Canada National Team projects. In addition, these camps will connect you with professional expertise, gracious champions, and promising athletes from across the country who share your drive for achieving your personal best.

The camp is for athletes between 14-19 years old. U17 and U19 club and provincial team athletes who wish to acquire and refine cyclocross-specific skills should attend! We are inviting several skills instructors and will match athletes with an instructor based on their skill level.

Each day begins with a skills session at Jordi Lunn Bike Park with guest instructors, including gracious champions from Cycling Canada’s national team. The sessions will focus on dismounting/barriers and cornering, among other things.

Afternoon sessions include a Monday ZOOM call discussing recovery strategies and mobility session, with an optional aerobic endurance ride using the galloping goose gravel sections on Tuesday.

Special notes:

  • Riders must carry proof of vaccination.
  • Riders are responsible for their transport, nutrition, accommodation.
  • This camp is OPTIONAL and will NOT affect National Team project eligibility.

As per Cycling Canada’s guiding mission and implementation strategy, High-Performance funding covers most camp costs. Attending athletes cover the remaining costs.

The cost to attend this camp is $20/day.

Registration is open now until January 7, 2022 @ 11:50 pm. Please disclose the name and contact information of your current club or personal coach. This way, we can add them to our contact list and keep them informed on all things cyclocross!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send us a message! We are really excited about this event and looking forward to surfing the dirt with you!
