Vanier Park Cylcocrcross - Sunday, September 29, 2013 presented by West Coast Cycling and TREK Red Truck Racing
It's time to get dirty. On Sunday, September 29, 2013 the 13th Vanier Park Cyclocross as part of the Vancouver Superprestige Series by SHIMANO, will be back in Vancouver, BC.
The North Shore mountains and False Creek will provide the magnificent backdrop as racers hit the beautiful Vanier Park in the very heart of Vancouver.
The race will be a true test of hardcoreness (!) and a double header with Saturday's New Brighton Cross in Vancouver, BC.
And the forecast is calling for rain ... the first time in years ... well, get ready, folks.
