Cycling BC and the Greater Victoria Velodrome Association would like to welcome you to the 2017 British Columbia Track Championships.  This is a Cycling BC sanctioned event, hosted each year by either the Burnaby Velodrome Club or the GVVA.  

Track Cycling is spectator-friendly. Admission to watch is free! Come on out and cheer on our future BC champions!  This is going to be an exciting weekend of racing with BC’s best track cyclists competing on the Westshore Velodrome, a 333m concrete outdoor track with 28 degree bankings and smooth transitions to the straightaways, built for the 1994 Commonwealth Games. 

For 2017, we introduce some significant changes to Omnium format and some modifications to the Keirin event as well as minor rule changes in other events.   Riders, please check the Technical Guide for details and consult the UCI web site for exact rule changes. 

Spectator Info
Just show up and watch! It’s that simple. Oh, and bring along your favourite lawn chair, some sunscreen, and a hat, and cheering voices! It’s entirely FREE! Join us!
