GREAT NEWS! The 2010 Alberta Summer Games are taking Place in Peace River from July 19th to 25th.
New for the 2010 Games is the fired up kid on the block, the “Cross Country Mountain Bike” race. This electrifying young hipster of an event is back after a few years of rest and relaxation from the AB Summer Games. Youth aged 11 to 16 from each of Alberta’s 8 zones will be competing for the celebrated AB Summer Games medals.

Back for another exciting showing is the gorgeous BMX event. There were some questions about the BMX event in the 2010 Games, because Peace River currently doesn’t have a track. We are pleased to say that with the help of some great people in the Peace River area, and some Gretzky style assists from the fine looking St Albert BMX, it’s looking like there will be an excellent new track to throw down on for Alberta’s top 11 to 16 year old ninja BMX’ers.

The Alberta Bicycle Association is still in search of volunteers to fill a number of positions for both the BMX and the XC mountain bike events. These positions include,
Coaches/chaperone. Two are needed for each of Alberta’s eight zones, with one being male and one female. A minimum of one of the two coaches for each zone are required to have completed the “intro to competition” coaching course, as well as the BMX or MTB tactics module.
Zone Representative. For each zone. The zone rep is in charge of setting up and promoting their zone’s qualifying event(s), as well as keeping track of athlete information.
If you are interested in volunteering and helping out our promising young athletes, please contact either your track president or the Provincial Sport Coordinator, Roddi Lega.
