Good weekend coming up in Canmorrrrre. (Roll those R's!). Canada Cup AND Cactus Cup.

Saturday is Cactus Cup day 1 (of two) with a full day's worth of racing. The Cactus Cup is a race where the combined results of 3 different events (Time Trial, Dirt Criterium and XC Race) determine an overall winner. There's also a fun to watch Team Relay Race.


9:00 - 12:00 AM: Time Trial. Racers start at 30 second intervals and attack a 5K single/double track course. Just like the Tour's Prologue, the Cactus Cup Time Trial is a good indication of who can ride fast over a short distance. This is the first event of the GC.

1:00 - 3:00 PM Team Relay. A short 1K stadium course where 4 person relay take turns and try to stay ahead of the other teams. 90 minutes of fierce but fun racing! Does not count toward GC.

4:00 - 8:00 PM Dirt Criterium. Survival of the fastest for 20 Minutes plus 3 laps. There's extra incentive to do well in the Dirt Crit so look forward to some of the best racing of the weekend. The race will feature breakaways, attacks, chases and sprints. The top five finishers get time shaved off of their overall (GC) time as follows:

1. 2 minutes
2. 1:30
3. 1:00
4. 0:45
5. 0:30

PLUS: There are special "Prime Laps" where riders can earn an additional 30 second time bonus.


1:00 (Elite Start) Canada Cup Cross Country Race. Also the final combined event to determine the overall Canmore Cactus Cup Champion. 9K of typically tough but beautiful Canmore Nordic Centre racing for all levels of racers. The Elite Pro races start at 1:00 PM. Riders compete for points in the Cactus Cup Race Series AND The Canada Cup Championship Series, the Canadian Cycling Association's premier mountainbike event.

The 2000 Arvid Geldsetzer Memorial - Provincial Track Championships was held on July 29 & 30,2000. Everything went well thanks to the riders, the officials, a great group of volunteers and of course the excellent weather.
