Part of the 2016 BC Premier Cyclocross Series.
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 category, 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!
