Pan Am Track Championships Trials

To be held April 5th-8th in Los Angeles, California.

These Trials will be used to select the Pan Am Track Championships Team, as well as to identify talented athletes for inclusion in future National Team programs. The trials will be run by Richard Wooles, National Track Coach. Athletes interested in attending the National Track Team Trials LA, please email richard.wooles@canadian-cycling.com.

The Pan Am Track Championships will take place May 4th - 7th in Chihuahua, Mexico.

• These Trials will be used to select the Pan Am Track Championships Team, as well as to identify talented athletes for inclusion in future National Team programs. The trials will be run by Richard Wooles, National Track Coach.
• Automatic selection: Athletes who finish top 8 in an Olympic discipline at 2008/09 World Cups will not be required to participate in the trials.
• Riders will need to pay for their own flight and Hotel, airport transfers for the trials.
• Coach and track time will be covered by the CCA for the trials.
• All spots will be part-funded for the Pan Am Championships, as this will enable us to field the maximum number of riders and identify 2012 potential athletes.
• Other athletes may be selected as a development opportunity based on future performance potential. In these cases, athletes may be asked to fully fund their travel to the Championships.
• All athletes selected through the Trials must participate in the CCA-mandated pre-championship preparation camp.
• Participation in non-Olympic track disciplines (Kilo, 500m, Scratch Race) will only be offered to athletes already selected for an Olympic discipline, and this will be at the discretion of the Coach in charge of selection.
