Cycling Canada has confirmed the 2018 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. Champions receive the red and white maple leaf jersey, and compete around the world in those colours.

“Cycling Canada is excited to release the dates and locations of the 2018 Canadian Championships,” said Mathieu Boucher, Performance Development Director at Cycling Canada. “We have the privilege to partner with an amazing group of organizers, public and corporate partners who are fully dedicated to hosting the best possible events to showcase our sport to the public and to support the development of our athletes across the country.”

The first national championships of 2018 will be the Canadian Track Championships presented by Lexus for Under-17, Junior and Para cyclists, to be held at the Mattamy National Cycling Centre in Milton, Ontario, on 12-15 April 2018.

The Global Relay Canadian Road Championships p/b Lexus will begin with the Masters categories, to take place in Victoria, B.C., on 1-3 June, and will be organized by the Victoria International Cycling Festival Society. The Elite, Junior and Para Global Relay Canadian Road Championships p/b Lexus will take place in Kamloops, B.C., on 21-24 June, organized by the NTSQ Sports Group.

In July, attention turns to BMX and Mountain Bike, with the BMX Canadian Championships scheduled for Drummondville, QC, on 14 July. Mountain Bike will be split across three championships, beginning with the XC MTB Canadian Championships p/b Lexus in Canmore, AB, on 21-22 July. A week later, the Downhill MTB Canadian Championships will take place at Panorama Mountain Resort, BC, on 28-29 July. The Mountain Bike championships will conclude on 26 August in Saint-Raymond, QC, with the XCM (Marathon) MTB Canadian Championships.

The final two championships of the year, to be held in the autumn/fall of 2018, are the National Track Championships for Elite and Masters categories and Cyclo-cross Canadian Championships, with schedules and locations to be announced at a later date.
