LEVELS OF RACING
FIRST-TIME / NEW RIDERS
In your first year as a racer, you will be required to run the LAST THREE DIGITS from your assigned CODEUCI license number.
After your first season you will qualify to run a number from one of the following levels of racing:
DISTRICT LEVEL RANKING (1st level of BMX)
This is the first level of racing that you will encounter when you start BMX. You will be competing against other local racers throughout the season and your points will be tallied up at the end of the year to determine your final year-end ranking. Number-plates and prizes are awarded for achievement in each district.
PROVINCIAL LEVEL RANKING
Each province holds a series of "Provincial" level races where you can test your skills against riders from your respective province. Ask your local track about how to qualify.
NATIONAL AGE GROUP RANKING (N.A.G.)
This award means you have earned the most National points in your age class (males and females are separated) at National Events across Canada. To earn a National number you must meet the qualification criteria set out for the series.
CCA CANADIAN CHAMPION
The CCA sanctions the Canadian Championships each year and the winners of each age class earn the highest recognized UCI/CCA Canadian ranking.
UCI WORLD CHAMPION
The UCI World Champion number plate is the highest ranking you can achieve in BMX. To earn a spot on Canada's Team you must first qualify through a series of events specified by the Canadian BMX Association the season prior.
