About The Race.
.Why cyclocross racing? Plain and simple: it’s a ton of fun! Races are short – less than an hour – with riders navigating sometimes muddy terrain, slippery off-camber grass sections, jumping barriers and pushing themselves just hard enough to keep a smile on their face. If not racing, Pro riders can compete on any bike they might have in their shed – CX bike, mountain bike, fat bike or even that $300 Frankenbike – it doesn’t matter. Bring it on!
Did we mention fun? Cyclocross races thrive on inclement weather conditions; the wetter, the muddier, the better! And talk about spectator-friendly, you can easily watch most of the race from one vantage point thanks to the tight course layout and varying terrain. With various “hand-ups” on course shenanigans, cheering or heckling and loads of cow bell, you can’t help but get swept up in the cyclocross experience!
We’ll have ample on-site mechanical support from the crew at Life Cycles Bike Shop.
All lapped riders will finish on the same lap as the first place rider. If there are 45+ in a category, lapped riders will be pulled by the commissaire.
Call-ups will be based on Cycling BC Premier Series points, VCXC Series points, BC Interior Cross series and Cross on the Rocks series.
Podium and Awards.
All riders receiving awards are required to be present for the podium, and be in proper podium attire (clean cycling kit). Failure to do so can result in loss of prize or award.
