BC Youth Road Championship Categories

Cycling BC is pleased to announce that our BC Youth Time Trial, Road and Criterium Championship categories will be run entirely based upon age groups.

Through consultation with many of our affiliated club coaches, a consensus was reached – namely, that having these young athletes compete within their age groups will be good for both the development of the sport and the athletes themselves.

This is the one race in the season to which the no-upgrades policy will apply, with the hopes that it levels the field for all and provides us with a consistent measuring stick for the performance of our young riders.

Depending upon the number of entries, Cycling BC may ask race organizers to combine age groups if it will create a more optimal racing environment. U19 riders will be eligible to upgrade to Elite and U23 when these events are hosted on separate dates or if numbers are low in the U19 fields.
