Victoria is pleased to play host to this season’s Cyclocross Provincial Championships, slated for Sunday November 18th at Western Speedway and presented by Broad Street Cycles and Shimano.
Bookending a weekend of bike racing on Vancouver Island, the 2018 CX Provincial Championships offers an opportunity to line up with the best in BC, and vie for a championship jersey. As day two of a duo of race days at Western Speedway– Victoria’s perennial mud-fest CX venue– the provincial championships will offer an updated version of Saturday’s Cross on the Rock course. Come for the weekend, and explore the gritty side of Victoria: mud, gravel, and grime on a motorsport racing track.
Battling it out for a provincial podium, Cycling BC Race and UCI Licence holders will have the opportunity to compete in age categories throughout the day. Holding a Cycling BC Ride Licence, or still rolling as an unlicensed racer? Register for the Open Men and Open Women’s categories held that same day.
The fight for a men’s and women’s singlespeed CX title will be one of the most closely watched on the day, with racers struggling through slop with only one gear. Bring your flat-bars, fat tires and sense of irreverence: all are welcome in this category that defies categorization.
Details will continue to be released closer to the date, with details on provincial championship category ranking, as well as more event details still to drop.
