$1500 Cash Purse for Elite Men and Women.
A waterfront and mountain view, sand, gravel, dirt, grass, run-ups, barriers, lots of sweeping turns, and several nasty sharp ones... The Wedgwood New Brighton Cyclocross race is a definite classic on the cross circuit.
In 2008, Team Wedgewood hosted the inaugural race at New Brighton Park, an eleven hectare multi-use ocean-front park in East Vancouver. Back for a fourth time in 2011 the team is planning yet another sweet Euro spectator-friendly parcours. Mark your calendar for "a date with dirt"; Sunday, September 25th is the day.
The Wedgewood Cycling Team and all our sponsors pride ourselves on our community involvement. In particular, Wedgewood Cycling donates proceeds from our races and fundraising events to the B.C. Cancer Foundation - an independent charitable organization that raises funds to support breakthrough research and care at the B.C. Cancer Agency. Their vision is a World Free from Cancer. Our aim is to help them make this a reality.
