Official Press Release from Cycling Canada

We are disappointed to announce that the organizers of the Sun Peaks Canada Cup have decided to cancel the Cross-Country (XCO) portion of their event. The updated Canada Cup Calendar can be found here: 

Statement from Sun Peaks Resort:

After careful consideration Sun Peaks Resort and Race organizers have decided not to go ahead with the Canada Cup XCO. After many years of hosting these races throughout 1999- today there has seen a serious decline in registration of XCO style racing in western Canada, in favor of more marathon style races, so regrettably we will not be able to continue with the 2013 Canada Cup XC. 

Cycling CANADA and Cycling BC will continue to work together to build and strength XCO racing opportunities in Western Canada. We will continue to support the DH Canada Cup at Sun Peaks and work with the organizer to help build their event.


Please note that Sun Peaks is still holding the DH Canada Cup race along with the DH BC Cup.
