2022 Yukon Mountain Bike Team
Last update: May 24, 2022
The Yukon Mountain Bike Team is back for 2022 summer training with an Elite or Competition membership. You must be 13 years or older to participate.
Both membership programs will run from May 10 until September 8, timed with the end of year 2022 Yukon XC Mountain Bike Championships on September 10.
Program staff includes our head coach and a team of trained assistant coaches.
The Elite membership is $425 (plus a CAY membership) and includes:
- Training 2 days a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays
- Each day will include 2 hours of on-bike fitness and technical work to make athletes better mountain bikers
Athletes don't need a XC mountain bike to participate, but an efficient trail bike is ideal.
The Competition membership is $650 (plus a CAY membership) and includes:
- Training 3 days a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays
- Each day will include 2 hours of on-bike fitness and technical work, mixed with road cycling to make athletes better mountain bikers
- Saturday training will vary from 1 hour to 4 hours in duration
Athletes that sign up for the Competition membership will also receive 2 to 3 goal-setting seasons and a personalized seasonal training plan for the duration of the months we will be training.
The Competition membership is for those athletes that want to be competitive at the national level of XCO and XCC mountain bike racing and attend the Canada Summer Games.
Athletes will be highly encouraged to obtain an XC mountain bike and will need access to a road bike.
Upcoming team events
We are planning on attending 2 events outside the Yukon this year.
National Mountain Bike Championships (Canada)
Athletes will be responsible to pay trip and registration fees. There will be some funding available to support these costs.
Canada Summer Games
This event requires pre-qualification as we are only permitted to bring 3 males and 3 female athletes. The 2022 Canada Summer Games will be a paid trip by Sport Yukon.
