The two days of Canada Cup racing begin on August 29, and will allow the BMXers from across the country to earn some coveted UCI points and some Canada Cup points towards the ultimate goal of taking the title as the series comes to an end on Sunday August 30.
“Calgary BMX is very excited to host what could be the biggest BMX event in Canada this year! The City of Calgary and many of the local businesses are very enthusiastic and supportive about the sport of BMX. We are very proud to welcome the world to Calgary and have an excellent race,” said Chris Bullivant, President of Calgary BMX.
The event will offer the organizers one last opportunity to polish details as it hosts the Canadian BMX Championships over the next two years.
“Calgary is a hotbed for BMX in Alberta and Western Canada. We are thrilled to crown of newest Canada Cup Champions in this vibrant city. We are confident that the riders will enjoy this event,” said Mathieu Boucher, Performance Development Director at Cycling Canada. “The organizers have plenty of experience in hosting BMX events, and this will be a great opportunity to gather information in advance of the Canadian BMX Championships that will take place over the next two years.”
