The first Cedar Shaker Cyclocross race was held on Sunday at Revelstoke Mountain Resort.

Heavy rain the night before the event made for some fantastic race conditions.  The wet landscape challenged the 40 racers who came out to test their fitness and riding skills against a course that weaved its way around the parking lots and the Turtle Creek area at the base of RMR. In the end, there were muddy smiles and lots of high fives.

The race of the day was the U12, with Nelson Luxmore winning in a finish-line sprint against Alex Jay.  Other notable local results were Aleks Klassen winning the U16, Heather Jay winning the Women’s Open, Thom Madlung finishing in third place in the Mens Sport and Rich Hamilton getting the same result in the Elite Mens. Big thanks to all the volunteers who came out and helped make the event a success, and to RMR for hosting. The out-of-town racers are already asking if we can do it again next year as they loved the course and the venue. So, if you missed it this year, make sure you check it out next year.
