Cancelled: Hayman Classic 2024


May 24, 2024 - May 26, 2024

Event Information


The organizers of the 2024 Hayman Desert Classic have made the difficult decision to cancel the event due to low registration numbers.

Furthermore, the organizing society apologises to all those who registered and the many volunteers who have already contributed countless hours towards this year’s event.

Registered participants will be contacted by email to arrange a refund.

As the event was also the host event of the 2024 BC U17/U19 Road Race & Criterium Provincial Championships, Cycling BC is actively searching for a replacement host organizer and event for the U17/U19 Road Race & Criterium Championships.


The Hayman Classic is founded on the idea of bringing young cyclists together on home soil. Unlike almost any other race in Canada, there are no adult categories – this is all about the future! It is our hope that their experiences in this event will have a positive, lasting impact on their lives.

Registration is now open for the 3-Day Hayman Classic Youth Stage Race. This 2024 edition is shaping up to be our best yet.

The 2024 Edition will include the categories: U15, U17 and U19 male and female racers. The category age is as of December 31, 2024.

The Criterium and Road Race will double as the 2024 BC Championships for U17 & U19 riders. U17 riders must race in the U19 category for the U17 BC Championships.

As a stage race, the final standings will be based on accumulated time. Special rules will ensure riders are not penalized with elimination for unfortunate mishaps. Prizes will be awarded for stages and final GC.

Racing starts Friday with an uphill time trial followed by the Area 27 road race. General Classification is based on accumulated time and is open to licensed riders between the ages of 13 and 18. Race categories include U19 male and female, and ability-based categories for younger and newer riders.

Anyone unsure of the category best suited to them can rest assured they can change categories at the May 23rd Rider Meeting/Number Pickup, and even after the hill climb. A Banquet-Awards Night is included with registration.

Additional banquet tickets are available at registration site for family and team support.
