Mountain Bike Commissaires Needed!
Commissaires are one of the back bones of our Cycling Community. They are trained cycling officials who volunteer their time to ensure cycling competition is safe and fair. They understand the rules regulating the sport and work in collaboration with race organizers, announcers, and race directors to ensure your event runs smoothly.
For the safety and enjoyment of all participants, commissaires are a requirement of a MCA sanctioned and insured cycling event.
If you are a club interested in organizing races we strongly recommend that you identify at least one official within your club.
Training as a commissaire and then committing to 2-3 events a year supports MTB racing plus club, trail, youth, and masters development in Manitoba! Commissaires are paid a small honorarium (from the organizing club) to help offset their travel and time.
- You will be joining a great team of individuals who will help mentor your development!
- You will have a front row seat at the competition!
- You will be making a significant difference to the community!
