As this event is also a Canada Cup race, please ensure you are aware of the membership/licence requirements.
Cycling BC would like to clarify important membership/licence requirements regarding all internationally sanctioned events presented in the province of British Columbia. At each of the following events, participants in specific categories will be required to present a valid UCI international licence at registration in order to be allowed to compete in their designated category. Failure to do so will result in entry being denied.
Please note, the licence requirements also apply even if the race is part of a provincial race series such as the BC Premier Series. Points will only be allocated to the racers competing in their respective category as it appears on the license.
