Although the main mandate of the National Cycling Centre is not to organize events, we still feel we can be an important actor on the Atlantic scene. It started in 2001 when we acted as Technical Director of the National Road Championships held in Dieppe. The same was done in 2004 when cyclo-cross nationals were held in St-Anselme Park. Since the Centre manages the Caisse populaire Dieppe Vélodrome, we were also very much involved in the 2006 and 2007 Elite Track National Championships.
These events are always organized in partnership with a club or organizing committee. We’ve also been active offering our resources to local event such as the Mike’s Bike Shop Cup as well as the Pepsi Cup.
