Notice from Cycling Canada:
According to new UCI requirement, all athletes competing in a UCI MTB junior series race outside of their country of residence must have at least 20 UCI points in the latest UCI XCO individual junior ranking, or belong to a UCI Elite MTB Team or UCI MTB Team. For riders who do not meet either of these criteria, Cycling Canada may approve a maximum of 5 supplementary athletes for each junior category (men & women).
In order to determine these supplementary athletes we’ve devised a priority list and online application system which can be found on our website under selection policies: http://www.cyclingcanada.ca/mountain-bike/national-team/program-policies/ Athletes are to apply up to 4 weeks before the competition and will receive confirmation of their application once that deadline has passed.
The deadline for the Junior Series application for San Dimas, CA (April 8) will be extended to March 22 due to the short notice.
