Dark Cross, and ‘cross season, approaches


It seems every year as though cyclocross season suddenly springs out of nowhere, and that’s about to happen again!… The first race of the 2014 season is Dark Cross, on Saturday, September 6th.

Racing under the speedway lights has become a season opening tradition in Manitoba, and this year will be no different.  If you’re a participant this is an awesome way to kick off your fall campaign, and if you’re a spectator the racing is only a part of the action.  You also get to enjoy the live band, dj’s, and beer garden.

Below is the video of last year’s event.  If you like what you see, and you most certainly will, check out the whole Dark Cross site and get ready for some fun in less than a month.

Cycle-Smart ‘Cross Camp Aug 16 & 17


The Olympia Cycling Club is hosting the upcoming Cycle-Smart ‘Cross Camp on August 16 & 17th, where camp participants will receive instruction in technique and training for cyclocross in a hands on, one on one, two day format.  Skills covered include mounting and dismounting, carrying, cornering, off-cambers, starts, bunny hopping, line selection, course evaluation, and race simulation.

The camp is open to anyone but is limited to 20 spots and participants must be licensed members of the MCA.

For much more info check out their page on the MCA site or visit their Facebook page.

Registration closes at 11:45 pm this coming Thursday, August 14th, so act fast!

Back 40, August 10th

Check it out…After a year’s hiatus one of our favourite mountain bike events is back.

This race has some awesome flow and just enough technical stuff to make it interesting for the experienced rider while still being relatively newbie friendly.

What’s more, you don’t need an MCA licence to race.  Get all the info here, and then plan to take part on Sunday, August 10th.  There are distances and categories for every rider age and ability.
