For the first time since 2010, the Canadian Road Cycling Championships for Elite, Junior and Para athletes are returning to Edmonton from June 23 – June 27, 2022.
The Canadian Road Cycling Championships are the most prestigious cycling events on the domestic racing calendar, with the winners of each event awarded the “National Champion” maple leaf jersey to wear in competition around the world in the year following the event.
Since riders must compete at Nationals to be considered for the National Team, this event sees participation from the highest level of cyclists in Canada and will also feature some of Canada’s top professional riders, who have the opportunity to race on home soil. The Canadian Road Championships is comprised of three separate events: Time Trial, Road Race and Criterium for Junior, Elite, and Para athletes.
