2006 FloraGLO Lutein, BC Cup #1, set to roll with Harris Roubaix Red Truck Classic

The FloraGLO Lutein, BC Cup Series, kicks off in less than a month, on Sunday, April 9th, with the 2006 Harris-Roubaix Red Truck Classic. The four-race Harris-Roubaix promises to test not only a rider‚s strength, stamina and determination, but also guarantees to push machinery to its limits. Last years winners include 3 time World Mountain Bike Champion, Alyson Sydor and Symmetrics pro team member, Will Routley.

The BC Cup Series is a high-performance cycling championship which awards points to the top 15 racers at seven events around BC. The Series is a stepping-stone to National and International competition, fostering the growth and development of BC's racers by providing athletes with highcaliber competition, and providing the opportunity to develop both physical and psychological racing skills in a unique Series format.

BC Cup #1, Harris-Roubaix Red Truck Classic, is modeled closely after the infamous Paris-Roubaix. The race is one of the most grueling, flat road races in British Columbia, featuring a 9.5 Km course with two sections of gravel or pavé. Over 270 riders participated in last years 2005 Classic, bringing out top caliber riders, including World Champion Roland Green.
