Canada Summer Games – Manitoba Records Broken in 2017!

Its a wrap!  The Canada Summer Games featured 16 sports, over 250 events and welcomed over 4,000 athletes and coaches and more than 20,000 visitors!  The 2017 Canada Summer Games will leave a lasting legacy of new and enhanced sport facilities, volunteer and leadership development that will benefit athletes and the broader community for years to come.

The Games were a huge success.  Manitoba set 3 significant records during the Canada Games

  1. The most medals we’ve ever won
  2. The most gold medals we’ve ever won
  3. We, for the 2nd CSG in a row, won the Centennial Cup as the most improved Province. This had never been done before!

The Manitoba Cycling Association would like to thank all of volunteers, coaches and especially our athletes.  We are very proud of you all.

Thank you Canada Summer Games Volunteers

So many great people have given countless hours of their time to support the 2017 Canada Summer Games, in particular our 3 Cycling venues & events.
Literally 100’s of volunteers came together for each event over the past two weeks and the events ran smoothly due to your support, planning, attention to detail, and willingness to serve the community.

From marshalls, to food preparation, to transport it took an army and the army showed up – Thank you!!!

A special thanks to our Sport and Venue chairs who have been preparing for the past 2-4 years.
Mountain Bike: Trevor Ketler (Sport) and Bill Gendron (Venue)
Road: Bill Ralph and Andrew Paradowski (Sport) and Jim Prendergast (Venue)
Criterium: Rick Yaschyshyn (Sport) and Currie Gillespie (Venue)

In addition to these leaders, there were many other lead positions with several volunteers reporting to them.

The Manitoba Cycling Association would also like to thank the staff at the Canada Games Host Society. Jolene Dupuis did an excellent job leading and overseeing our cycling events. There were many others from this team who were supporting behind the scenes in many different capacities. There will be many legacy pieces that our MCA membership will benefit from in the future. In addition, Cycling Canada staff also provided many months of direct support leading up to and during the games.

It is an understatement to say that these games would not have been a success without everyone’s teamwork.

I hope everyone recovers well. We look forward to the opportunity to work with everyone again.

Bison Butte – Next Steps!

The Manitoba Cycling Association (MCA) and FortWhyte Alive are working towards opening Bison Butte for general use.

Following the completion of the Canada Games mountain bike events, we will be updating the course signage at Bison Butte. This means signage for various sections of the course which help riders understand the skill levels required to complete those sections.

Until then, and to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all, Bison Butte will be open to only MCA sanctioned events. Thus, until further notice, it is not open to the general public.

We appreciate everyone’s patience while we work towards making Bison Butte safe and accessible for all.
