Vanier Park Cyclocross

West Coast Racing and TREK Red Truck Racing are proud to present the longest running cyclocross event in BC, the 2011 Vanier Park Cyclocross.  The second round of the BC CX Cup series is back in the very heart of Vancouver at the beautiful Vanier Park with its fast, rolling course.

The event has something for everybody: Citizen categories, free kids event, master and elite races and of course a free BBQ to celebrate cyclocross in style. Thanks to our sponsor John Henry Bikes we have lots of prizes and goodies not just for the three on the podium. Please bring your cow bells and vuvuzelas to make some noise for some of BCs most dedicated racers and volunteers.

The course is mostly grass with tarmac sections, interrupted by stairs and the usual barriers, so pump up the tubies and get down to business. After last Sunday’s rather wet New Brighton event the weather forecast is looking better but be prepared for some wind and a few drops of rain. After all this is Vancouver and the cross season is now in full swing.

Hope to see you on Sunday in Vanier Park …
