Posted by Editoress on 12/17/13
Cycling Canada has released the 2014 Canadian National and International racing calendar, which features the UCI MTB World Cup at Mont-Sainte-Anne, the UCI Para Road World Cup, the Tour of Alberta and the Grands Prix Cyclistes de Québec et de Montréal. For 2014 the Whitespot Delta Road Race will add a UCI 1.2 Women's race to their Men's 1.2 race. In addition to these events, the Canadian cycling community will be racing in events at two brand new state-of-the art facilities: The Milton International Challenge (Milton Velodrome) and the Canadian BMX Championships (Pan Am BMX SX track).
Note: We published an unofficial version of the calendar last month. Since then, there have been some changes, which are reflected in this version of the calendar. The major changes are:
• The first round of the XCO Canada Cup in Victoria has been cancelled
• GP Gatineau moves to June from May
• Beauce is shortened by one day
• GP Cycliste de Rimouski has been cancelled and Saguenay is now open to all men
• Canada Cup BMX #1 & #2 moves to August, without a confirmed date or location at this time
