Looking for youth competitive cycling team athletes

One of Cycling Association of Yukon’s responsibilities is to train and send youth athletes to Canada Summer Games events.

Led by coaches Hudson Lucier (mountain bike) and Trena Irving (road) we are starting to prepare ourselves for the next Canada Summer Games in Niagra, Ontario. For cycling, this means mountain bike and road teams.

Our goal is to send female and male athletes to these events in August 2022.

We also want to send a mountain bike and road team to Newfoundland and Labrador in 2025.

Looking for interested athletes

Canada Summer Games is for youth between the ages of 16 to 21.

  • For the 2022 event, we are seeking youth who are 15 to 20 years old today.
  • For the 2025 event, youth who are 12 years or older are welcome to start with us now.

Athletes will train with our coaches several days per week on bike skills and intensity work. We will set goals with each person with the plan to not only improve bike skills, but become better all-around athletes. There will also be races to participate in.

All you need is a bike and a passion for improving yourself.
