2006 - Men's A hit the barriers
Oceanside venue, sunny skies, and a grand festival atmosphere all led into another fine running of the Vanier Park Cyclo Cross Classic, race #5 in the BC Cross Champs. Burgeoned with great weather, the race saw over 120 racers and 12 kids participate in the largest ever BC Cross event. This old mainstay of the BC Cross scene saw some fine new developments under new race director Sven Sturm. A faster course with a definate euro-style over the more technical singletrack routes of the past.

New for the 2006 season is the addition of the Cat B women's event. But despite the "novice" misnomer, the B group was full of talent.

Women's A
The Women's A group saw some stiff competition with some elite racers shredding up the course. All the usual suspects were out there, with Kelly Jones and Sarah Stewart leading the charge as usual. Kreb's own Christy Love despite suffering from a broken derailleur, battled on to a podium spot on a borrowed bike. True grit!

Men's C
Also new for 2006: the novice men event. But on the fast dry course, this event wasn't run anything near a pedestrian pace.

Men's B
The largest pack of the day, the Men's B hit the race course in storm. With heavy congestion, this competitive group saw the bulk of the carnage as racers sought gaps through rougher lines.

Men's A
The showcase Men's A event represented much of the "who's who" of the Men's BC Cross scene. All the usual suspects were up front for the grand finale, with Andrew Kyle nipping top honours. But we can't deny that race director Sven Sturm shone through with a fine performance despite being up at the crack of dawn setting up the event.
