CX racing at it’s very best @ South Surrey Athletic Park October 22nd and proud to be part of the Vancouver Lower Mainland Cyclocross Series!

We have included almost every type of terrain in the revised 3.4km per lap course. An uphill road start will take you onto the gravel by the water tower, through the JunkYard Cross Village and past the Red Racer Beer Garden and onto the grass. As you pass around the water reservoir you will encounter off camber hills before you plummet back onto gravel and onto the BLT trail in the forest.  Scramble up the Drop Zone, the steepest muddiest section and back onto gravel. A second pass of the beer garden, (perhaps stop in on your way by) then back into forested single track before popping out onto the off camber grass and sidewalk climb. Reverse direction back down the hill while on the off camber swoopy grass then back up the hill on off camber grass along the perimeter of Softball City. We’ve got it all to challenge and entertain you . . .


PIZZA, BEER & PHOTO INCLUDED! - with your entrant fee.

Receive a voucher for 1 slice of pizza. Fresh and hot on site!

Each entrant of drinking age will also receive a voucher for 1 beer at the Red Racer Beer garden.  But you’ll probably want an extra at $5 per while you cheer your favourite racer as they ride by the beer garden twice per lap. Or perhaps they’ll need hydration. U19 riders will receive a non alchoholic beverage voucher.

Scott Robarts Photography will be taking pro photos of your gritty race face so don't forget to show some teeth! Photos will be free to download for personnal use.





Cyclocross is a discipline of cycling that is growing quickly due to its accessibility (mountain bikes welcome in novice categories) and inclusive atmosphere (no one is serious here). With attainable race times (only 30-60 minutes!), short courses (usually around 2-3km’s), and fun factor (barriers, run-ups, dirt, loud spectators, prizes, smiles, beer garden and more), it’s no wonder everyone is eager to get their ‘cross on!
