MB Summer Games Update: Qualifier Races & Q&A

We are now just over 2 months away from the 2024 MB Summer Games and preparation is really in full swing!

It’s so close that we will be ordering regional team jerseys in advance of athlete selection due to the 6 week production time of these custom 2024 MB Summer Games cycling jerseys. 

EAST = Grey
WEST = Green
Winnipeg Blue = Blue
Winnipeg Gold = Yellow

In June we have 4 Qualifier Races:

  1. Saturday June 8th – Spring Fever – Neepawa, MB – hosted by the Town of Neepawa featuring HyLife Back 40 trails; race guide and registration link: https://mbcycling.ca/event/mtb-neepawa-minnedosa-mtb-race-manitoba-summer-games-qualifier/
  2. Sunday, June 9th – Squirrel Chaser – Minnedosa, MB – hosted by Prairie Mountain Cycling/Squirrel Girl  featuring the Squirrel Hills trails; race guide and registration link: https://mbcycling.ca/event/mtb-neepawa-minnedosa-mtb-race-manitoba-summer-games-qualifier-2/
  3. Saturday, June 15th – Schinken Vad – Thornhill, MB – race organizer Brad Gauthier


  4. Saturday, June 29th – Falcon Cup – Falcon Lake, MB – hosted by Falcon Sports Club; race guide and registration link: https://mbcycling.ca/event/mtb-xc-falcon-trails-resort/

MB Regional Team selection will happen on Sunday, June 30th, 2024 .  Since the last qualifier race is the day before, we will need to know who will accept an athlete spot if selected/offered a spot.  To achieve this I will be sending a link to parents to complete an ATHLETE INTENT TO COMPETE FORM in the near future.


Is there a cost to take part in the MB Summer Games

  • Yes, all athletes will need to register (through the GemsPro online system).  Cost is $250 and if an athlete is competing in another sport in phase 2 of the games their cost is $300 total.  The cost includes accommodation, food, transportation to and from Dauphin and during the games, etc.
  • Regional team jersey – athletes will need to pay for their team jersey (full zip custom designed MB Summer Games race jersey); estimated cost ~$90

How will the cycling athletes be selected?

How can I find out more about the MB Summer Games in general and other sports?

Where can I find info about cycling and the MB Summer Games?

More info to come in the next few weeks and I hope to see you next weekend for the double header races in Neepawa and Minnedosa!
