2021 CYCLOCROSS – EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FORMS NOW AVAILABLE

Have you been considering hosting a Cyclocross event this fall? The 2021 Cyclocross Expression of Interest is now open and accepting applications on CCN. While we do not know what the future holds in terms of distancing regulations set out by the Provincial Government, it is our hope that the 2021 Ontario Cycling Association Cyclocross Season will be able to re-introduce mass start bike racing to the Province of Ontario after an 18 month hiatus.

Any group (individual member, affiliated club, or team) interested in organizing one or more events during the 2021 season must submit an Expression of Interest for each individual event. Expressions of interest must be received no later than 12:00 PM (noon) on Thursday July 29th to be included in the Preliminary CX Calendar. All applications after this date will be considered for inclusion in the 2021 Event Calendar but only after the preliminary calendar is set. The 2021 Guidelines for Cyclocross will be made available in August 2021 once the Provincial Government has provided more guidance surrounding Step 3 of the re-opening plan.

Expression of Interest forms can be submitted online via CCN by visiting:

It is to be noted that organizers on record within the group hosting a competitive event must hold an Ontario UCI license with the ORG designation or for the 2021 season ONLY, a Citizen Permit is acceptable.

Event dates will be determined in order as follows using the date choices provided on the Expression of Interest form:

  1. UCI Events
  2. National Events
  3. Provincial Championships
  4. Ontario Cups
  5. Regional Events
  6. Citizen Events
  7. Weekly Series

Unless indicated on your application, organizers who do not receive the sanction level they requested, will be automatically considered for the next lower sanction level (i.e. Ontario Cup to Regional). Unless given special dispensation, no event may be awarded an Ontario Cup sanction (or higher) without having run the event previously at the sanction level immediately below it.

We look forward to working with each of our organizers this season!
