Team Alberta was successful at the 2019 National Championships

 

 

A strong team from Alberta represented our province at the 2019 North American and Canadian Championships in Whistler, B.C.

42 athletes from Senior Boys/ Girls up to Masters 50+ were in Whistler and were aiming for the medals!

Some of our athletes participated the first time at a national event while others used the week as their last races of long professional careers.

Team Alberta won 44 medals in the Sprint, Individual and Pursuit competitions and finished with 10 relay teams in the top 3 during the final day of competitions on Sunday! On top of that did our team finish 112 times in the top 10 throughout the different categories!
