The Cycling BC Staff
Technical Delegate Recruitment

Cycling BC is looking to recruit several members familiar with racing who are interested in occasional contract work as an event Technical Delegate (TD) at some Road events this summer. The role of the technical delegate is to serve as Cycling BC's representative at the race. This usually involves:

- Assisting the race organizer with registration

- Answering member questions regarding categories and race licenses

- Assisting with awards, particularly for BC Cup or Provincial Championship events

- Setting up the podium and back-drop provided to organizers by Cycling BC

- Assisting the organizer with race results preparation

- Returning and forms or fees collected to the Cycling BC office

We expect that each Technical Delegate will be asked to work at 1 to 3 races per year, depending upon availability; most races will be in or close to the BC Lower Mainland. Cycling BC will provide training and a Cycling BC shirt to successful candidates. Remuneration includes a daily honorarium and travel expenses. Since this role involves only occasional work, there should be no problem with candidates continuing to participate in races throughout the season, with the exception of those events where they are assigned as the Technical Delegate. Applications from existing Cycling BC volunteers such as commissaires or coaches are also welcome, as are applications from members who participate in any of the cycling disciplines; this program will likely be extended to other disciplines in future.

If you are interested, please e-mail a short cover letter describing some of your experience as a participant or volunteer in the sport to Kevin MacCuish at Cycling BC. (
