No dedicated Canada Cup for road races in decades. So we did something about it.

WhyUniting a Nation2023 RacesStandings Suggestions


We wanted to identify races that are key to an athlete’s development and track them over time.

Then we said, “why not give points throughout the season.

That would be a series or national ranking”. Ultimately declare an overall champion for women and men.

It could increase a sense of community by showcasing a development pathway of Canadian races.

The ranking will be completely independent of any other series or event. Overall points and scoring are published by BTG after each event.

Races  🏃🏼‍♀️

53 total races, for women, men and juniors. 11 provinces & territories.  A series accessible to everyone.

Racing days 🏁

Racing days are awesome to develop our athletes. We wrote about the importance of race days here and here.

We think smart camps around great races helps make athletes better. Done well, at the right time, camps can simulate the intensity and load of a stage race and bridge the gap to higher levels of racing. We’ll work with our top athletes and coaches to deliver unique experiences for developing athletes.
