NOTICE RE: BICYCLE EQUIPMENT IN TRIATHLON
Bicycles of non-traditional patterns (bicycles with irregular rider position) are considered illegal unless approved by the Chief Race Official well prior to the race.
For athletes with a disability, the term 'bicycle' includes: bicycle, handcycle, tricycle, tandem bicycle and racing wheelchair. Any AWAD competitor using equipment that is non-traditional should have it approved prior to race-day.
Please note - The term 'bicycle' does not refer to recumbent bicycles which are illegal for all competitors AWAD or able bodied.
For further clarification, Officials, Race Directors and Athletes are urged to review the official rules for specific descriptions of all legal cycling equipment. The rules that govern triathlon in Canada can be found HERE.
Officials Clinics are conducted in the spring and summer of each season. If you belong to a club, race organization, or community that requires individuals to be trained as an Official, please contact Triathlon BC and we will arrange for a clinic to be conducted in your area. We require at least four people to attend an Officials Clinic; we do not charge a fee for participation.
We are constantly looking for individuals that are interested in becoming part of our Officiating team. If you are interested in becoming an Official, please contact us. Note that we encourage:
Officials Clinics, while prerequisite to becoming an official, are also a good introduction to the rules of the sport. Please note, all Officials must be current members of Triathlon BC when officiating.
