We also have some very disturbing reports of physical intimidation during yesterday's men's cross country race. It appears that certain Expert category riders were blocking riders in lower categories from passing and using physical violence to force their way past other riders. We hope that the officials and the provincial association will deal with this matter immediately, if true.
