The Criterium Championships will be on May 28 hosted by the Hyack Festival at a new venue in New Westminster.
The BC Youth Time Trial, Road and Criterium Championships will return to the sunny Okanagan June 11 and 12.

The BC Cross Country and Downhill Championships will be heading back to Whistler Blackcomb on June 25 and 26. With rumors of new courses, combined with that great Whistler experience, this is one weekend you won’t want to miss.
The BC BMX Championships will be July 16 at the Abbotsford BMX Park. With strong support from our provincial clubs, and a world class venue, these championship races promises action packed racing for all.
After a very successful 2015 event, the BC Cyclocross Championships will be returning to Loggers Sport’s Grounds in Squamish. Event organizer Steed Cycles has plans to make 2016 even bigger and better. With the race day changing to Saturday, there are rumors of a post-event social. Stay tuned for more details.
The BC Track Championships will be returning to the Burnaby Velodrome in the fall of 2016. Record numbers attended the event back in 2014, the last time it was hosted in Burnaby, and 2016 plans to top those numbers. Exact date will be announced soon.
