Canada Cup Elite Series - Update

The first ever Canada Cup Elite Series race took place back in February at the Vancouver Sprint Camp. The WRE at the South Surrey Bike Park offered intense navigation and route choice in a labyrinth network of trails. Map and courses are here on RouteGadget. GVOC jumped out to an early lead in the series thanks to dominating performances by Thomas Nipen and Louise Oram. Both were well ahead of the competition and claimed the $150 winner's cheques. Here are the current standings!

The next race on the Elite Series program is Sage Stomp XVI on May 21-22. This event will bring competitors back to the site of the 2003 Canadian Championships, the Gardens Creek Ranch, a short drive west of Kamloops. The program will offer a Sprint, Middle and Long. All races count towards selection to the team that will represent Canada at the World Championships in France in August. Here you can find info and registration for Sage Stomp XVI.

The Canada Cup program will then continue with the races in the Yukon during COC week-long festival. The rest of the program is still to be confirmed, but we hope to have the Elite Series Final at the Ontario Champs in Ottawa in October. Stay tuned!
