Mud, Sweat and lots of Grit at 2016 Cross Provincials

Kudos to the youth cyclists (and their parents and coaches) at the BC Provincial Cyclocross Championships 2016. The weather was “classic cross” – 2 degrees and pouring rain with puddles and mud calf deep (deeper for some of the youth). Everyone who started, FINISHED! Great composure and sportsmanship, especially for a few youths who only started cross this season. 

Podiums: Ethan Pauly U19 Champion, Sarah Van Dam U17 Champion, Griffen Hart & Isla Walker U15 Bronze
