Juniors - goals and plans . . .

Our Juniors are targeting mountain bike and/or road races and/or track races. Each Junior has worked with coach Tracy, and Ken to determine suitable goals for the season. 

Each Junior must take responsibility for understanding the requirements necessary to achieve his or her goals.  Provincial team selection documents can be found on the ABA website.

Canada Summer Games Mtn     Canada Summer Games Road     Road Nationals Provincial Team     Missoula Pro XC

If you are targeting a specific provincial, or national team, ensure that you have read, and that you understand -

  • which races (and the category) you need to enter

  • how team selections will be made

  • whether or not you need to indicate your interest by a specific date

If you have any questions about selections, or point allotments, be sure to have them answered.
