Cycling Canada has released the 2013 Mountain Bike calendar. The season will be highlighted by the UCI World Cup race in Mont-Sainte-Anne, Quebec, a race that has become a tradition on the UCI World Cup tour and is a favorite among international riders.
The 2013 Mountain Bike domestic calendar features three Canadian Championships for 2013. The traditional Canadian Cross-country Championships will be held at the popular Hardwood Ski and Bike resort near Barrie, Ontario, the site that will host the Mountain Bike competitions for the 2015 Pan-American Games.
The Canadian Downhill Championships will take place in Panorama, BC, making a return to the popular destination for a third time in four years, while the Canadian Marathon Championships will make a return to St-Raymond, Quebec, for a second straight year after a highly-successful inaugural event in 2012.
The calendar also features an improved Canada Cup for both cross-country and downhill. Five races will be held for cross-country racers, while the downhill racers will ride in three events. The 2013 Canada Cup Finals will be held in Whistler, BC, marking the return of racing at the popular destination. The 2013 Canada Cup series will be held in three provinces: Québec, Ontario and British Columbia.
Mathieu Boucher, Director of Development for Cycling Canada, is excited about the opportunities in Mountain Bike for next season. “We are pleased to host three different Canadian Championships for 2013 catering to all our riders, in three different provinces. The Canada Cup is also promising to be stronger than ever in 2013, with committed and experienced organizing committees in place. Riders taking part in both the Canadian Championships and Canada Cup events will experience the best mountain biking that Canada has to offer.”
