Note to all VCL competitors: Disc Brakes Banned in Competition

Following the UCI ‘s recent suspension of their trial of disc brakes in road races, Cycling Canada and the Cycling BC have prohibited the use of disc brakes in road events at national and UCI events. Cycling BC will be enforcing this ban on disc brakes in competitive road events sanctioned at the provincial level, beginning June 13th, 2016 

​We're bound by these rules, even at the club level because our racing insurance won't support us if we break them. Therefore, please note that until further notice, participants in Wheelers' races will not be permitted to compete in our events using bicycles equipped with disc breaks until this ruling changes.  We'll keep you posted as the issue develops.  Thanks for your cooperation and understanding.
