Special Notes

  • The Road Race stage will not contain a gravel section like years past for the simple fact that this race is being used for Team Alberta Junior Selections.
  • An individual time trial is scheduled for late afternoon Saturday which is necessary for the Junior Selection process.
  • ABA upgrade points are not awarded from the overall Omnium standings. Upgrade points are awarded for individual stage results.

Warming Up & Finishing

Use the warm-up area on Range Road 233 just north of Rollyview Road for warming and cooling down. Do not linger on the course once your rider has concluded. The time trial course is just 800m south of Rollyview Road so you'll be able to stay warm and get to the start line with time to spare.

Bike Check

Time trial bikes must conform to UCI regulations. Pre-event checks will be offered to all riders during the Friday night registration and during the day at the Rollyview Hall Race Headquarters.

The regulations will be strictly enforced for category 1,2,3 men and women. These categories will have their bikes verified at the time trial start line. Report to the Commissaire 5 minutes prior to your start time. Once your bike is checked, you will not be able to leave the start queue.

For category 4,5 men and women, U15, U17 categories a visual inspection will be done at the start line.
