Calling all Sprinters! Come to our Talent ID Session.

On April 23rd, 2014, at 6:00pm Cycling BC will be hosting a Talent I.D./Testing night at Cycling BC HQ for athletes with an interest in Track Sprinting.

Riders will be required to bring appropriate clothing for cycling in addition to shoes and pedals. If an athlete does not have Cycling shoes and pedals, alternatives will be provided (Please bring athletic shoes). If athletes have road bikes, they are encouraged to bring them to warm-up on, on the stationary trainer. If you do not have a bike, then one will be made available to you.

Athletes will be allowed to have a 20 min warm-up with instruction on the testing format and sprint form. The testing will be 2 X 6 second MAXIMUM efforts on the Wattbike Pro with recovery in between efforts. Testing process will take approximately 40 mins per athlete.

Spots are limited so first come first serve.

Please contact Matt Chater via email at to reserve your time slot or any questions you may have.

This testing may lead to an invitation to a Cycling BC 2 day Sprint Development Camp at the Juan de Fuca Velodrome in Victoria on May 3-4, 2014. Athletes will be notified after test results are reviewed on April 24th regarding Camp invitation.
