Cycling Canada National MTB & Road Commissaire Course

Cycling Canada is offering a National Commissaire Course for both MTB and Road disciplines as a pilot of the new National Commissaire Development Pathway. This will be the first time we offer National Commissaire training in this multi-mode method using online, virtual and in person training. The initial phases of the course work consisting of the online and virtual classes are to be completed over the summer of 2024. The location and timing of the in-person sessions will be determined at the conclusion of the virtual training.

This new training program will be led by several experienced commissaires including:

– Geordie Ma, MTB & BMX IC (Development Pathway Lead)
– Adrien Levesque, Road & Track IC
– Christian Cote, MTB ENC and CX IC
– Steve Head, Road IC and Track ENC

To be considered a candidate for National Commissaire in MTB or Road, the individual must have
held the status of Provincial Level A Commissaire in the applied cycling sport for at least 2 years. The person shall also have received a favorable review from the Provincial Chief Commissaire, or other provincially recognized competent authority for commissairing matters, in the
province/territory in which they reside.

Full details of the eligibility requirements are explained in the attached 2024 National Commissaire Pathway document.
