Cycling Canada announces 2020 national championships calendar.

Ottawa, ON (July 10, 2019) – Cycling Canada is pleased to confirm the 2020 calendar for national championships across Road, Track, Mountain Bike, Para-Cycling, BMX and Cyclo-cross. The national championships represent the highest level of competition on the domestic calendar, with champions receiving the red and white maple leaf jersey, which they get to wear to compete around the world.

“We are thrilled to confirm the dates and locations for each of our 2020 Canadian Championship events,” said Josh Peacock, Events Manager at Cycling Canada. “The Canadian Championship remains the pinnacle of high-performance competition on our National events calendar, and we’re confident that each of these organizations will set the stage for athletes young and old to showcase their best.”

The first national championships of 2020 will be the Canadian Track Championships for Under-17, Junior and Para cyclists, to be held at the Mattamy National Cycling Centre in Milton, ON, from April 3-5.

For the first time in several years, the Canadian Road Championships will start with the Elite, Junior and Para categories, which will be held in Lévis, QC, from June 26-29. The following weekend, the Canadian Road Championships for Masters athletes return to the East Coast, with races being held in Victoriaville, QC, from July 2-5.

In mid-July, attention turns to Mountain Bike, which will continue to be split into four separate championships for the second consecutive year. The XCO MTB Canadian Championships will kick off the season at Hardwood Ski & Bike in Oro Station, ON, from July 11-12. Two weeks later, the Downhill MTB Canadian Championships will take place at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in Golden, BC, on July 25-26. The Enduro MTB Canadian Championships will be organized by the BC Enduro Series during the summer, although the exact date and location are still to be determined. The Mountain Bike Championships will conclude on September 5 in St-Felicien, QC, with the XCM (Marathon) MTB Canadian Championships.

The BMX Canadian Championships will be scheduled later in the summer, with races being held from August 22-23 in Calgary, AB. The BMX Freestyle Canadian Championships will also return to the race calendar in 2020 after a successful first championship at Joyride 150, although the exact date and location are still to be confirmed.

The final two championships of the year, to be held in the Fall, are the Canadian Track Championships for Elite and Masters categories at the Mattamy National Cycling Centre, in Milton, ON, and the Cyclo-cross Canadian Championships. Schedules for these events will be announced at a later date.
