World Tuesday Night Championships – Glenlyon


Apr. 19, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Information

The World Tuesday Night Championships (WTNC) continues a long-standing tradition of weekly hammerfests that stretches back to the 1980s. Points are tallied over the course of 18 weeks of racing and Series Champions will be named at the final race in September.


Alternating between Glenlyon and UBC. See schedule below for details.


Tuesday nights (fair-weather only). Keep an eye on the forecast and our Twitter and Facebook for updates. The final decision on questionable days will be made at 3 pm.

Rules: All races are sanctioned by CyclingBC and are governed by the UCI’s regulations regarding road races. For EV-specific race rules, please refer to the EV Race Bible.


All racers must hold one of the following racing licenses:

  • Any UCI license
  • Cycling BC provincial license
  • USAC or USCF license (must sign medical waiver)
  • Single-day license (can be purchased at Registration for $10)

Neutralization and Race Control

In the event of an incident on course, marshals will notify racers and display coloured flags at one of several locations.

  • Yellow: race neutralized. All racers must maintain their current position in the peloton and carry on at a neutral pace until the crash is cleared and the injured racer(s) attended to.
  • Red: race cancelled.
  • Green: All clear. Incident has been cleared and racing may resume.


All racers must use the designated bathrooms at each course. These are clearly labelled on the maps above. Any racer observed violating this rule will face an immediate ban from all remaining 2016 WTNC races.

  • Adults race according to the ability category on their UCI license. Cat 4 men may choose to ride in D group or C group depending on their fitness.

  • Participants with a 1-day or a Provincial (formerly called Citizens) license must race in the lowest category available in the D Group.
