Plates and Race Numbers
All riders must use a race plate and numbers that comply with UCI regulations. Such plates are available from your home track. Decorative stickers are not permitted as they obscure the readability of the plate.

Riders need to use a race number corresponding to their highest earned ranking in the previous year. Race results from the UCI, CCC and ABA races have been used to determine which number each Alberta rider should use for both 20” and Cruiser. It is the rider's responsibility to confirm their correct number on the ABA plate list prior to season's start. In the case that a rider achieves earned numbers in several different race series', the number achieved at the highest ranking event must be used. For example, a rider who achieved an N5 at National Championships and a AB1 in the Alberta Cup must use the N5, as National Championships is the higher ranked standing. The order of priority from highest to lowest is: World Championship Race (W), National Championship Race (N), Alberta Provincial Championship Race (AB), Alberta Cup Series (P).
Riders without a ranking use a number equal to the last 3 digits of their UCI code. For example, the plate number for a rider born on August 8 would be 808 (Sample UCI code of CAN19950808).
