The BMX Provincial Team provides development opportunities to racers in the Train to Compete and Learn to Win stages of the Long Term Athlete Development model. The purpose of the BMX Provincial Team is to give an opportunity and funding to Alberta athletes who wish to experience larger races, experience Supercross training and improve their performance.


Athletes who are applying for a position on the Provincial Team must be willing to participate in projects with the team and should be looking to perfect the skills required to be successful on Supercross tracks.


For the 2024 season the BMX provincial team will focus on opportunities for riders to gain experience and improve their skills. The team for 2024 will consist of up to 20 challenge aged racers as well as Junior racers, with the possibility of increasing or decreasing the number on a per project basis at the discretion of the ABA and ABA BMX Committee.


  • Riders must be expert in level and have competed in the Junior Devo series in 2023 (13 years excepted)
  • Age groups considered for the team are, 14, 15 and 16 years of age as of December 31, 2024
  • Each rider will receive a Team jersey supplied by the Alberta Bicycle Association and its key sponsors.
    The final schedule of projects will be outlined at the team meeting in late 2023/early 2024.
  • Canada Cup Races
  • National Championships

Exceptions due to extenuating circumstances may be granted at the discretion of the Alberta Provincial Team Coach and the BMX Committee

Selection Criteria


Qualified riders with the highest number of total points may be invited to try out for the team. Points will be earned based on the sum of the final rank in the Alberta Cup Provincial Series, Alberta Provincial Championships, the National Championships, and UCI BMX Events.

  • UCI BMX Events listed below
  • National Championships
  • Alberta Cup Series Junior Devo (where age appropriate)
  • Alberta Cup Series (Final ranking)
  • Alberta Provincial Championships (this event will serve as the tie breaker, if needed)
