Riders will be racing for provincial series points as Action BMX hosts the third and fourth races in the 2017 BC BMX Premier Series. These races will also launch this year’s national series, the BMX Canada Cup.
The BMX Canada Cup Series will offer a lineup of 7 races to the young and fast BMXers of Canada. The series will kick off in May, and will travel to British Columbia, Ontario, and Alberta to finish in Calgary, AB where the new Canada Cup overall Champions will be crowned. The Canada Cup was introduced in 2012 as a way to help bridge provincial competitions to the international stage, and since has been an efficient tool in providing national competition to young riders, which is propelling Canada to some of its best international results since BMX became an Olympic discipline in 2008. “The 2017 Canada Cup series will offer some great opportunities for young aspiring BMXers to compete against some of Canada’s best,” said Josh Peacock, the series coordinator for Cycling Canada. “The growth of the BMX Canada Cup series has been impressive over the last four years, and we are counting on more young BMXers to join the series this year. With new world-class facilities in place such as the Toronto Pan Am BMX track, athletes young and old will have access to the highest level of competition across the spectrum.”
Action BMX will host the opening weekend of racing for the series with a UCI C1 sanctioned Canada Cup on Saturday May 27th and a National Calendar Canada Cup event on Sunday May 28th. The venue in Surrey BC, new to the Canada Cup circuit, is one of British Columbia’s most exciting and fast paced tracks, which should provide excellent racing and spectating for all ages. The Canada Cup for Elite pro’s and Junior Elite’s both male and female ! A Canadian national series! For CCA UCI riders.
It’s a tier 2 race so those racers can earn points towards world Championships and Olympic entry’s.
