Vanier Park Cyclocross - presented by West Coast Cycling and TREK Red Truck Racing
It’s time to get serious about cyclocross. On Sunday, September 28th, the 14th Vanier Park Cyclocross will back in one of Vancouver finest parks.
After last year's muddy edition we had to do some serious negotiating with the City of Vancouver to be able to secure the site for one of Canada's oldest cyclocross races again.
So join us for the only way to cross race in Vancouver this year.
Bring your best tubular tires cause this is Euro-style racing on a grassy course, smooth and blistering fast.
Bring your family cause you can see the future champions compete (large free kids race, strong junior categories and all ages, with equal payout for elite women and men).
Bring your bike and not your car cause this is in the heart of one of Canada's greenest cities.
Bring your cow bells `cause it will be some fine cross racing.
