alt There will be mud.  And rain.  And wind.  Sometimes in ’cross that’s just the way it has to be.  Violent, stormy weather pelted B.C.’s South Coast throughout the double-header weekend that featured the latest two rounds of the 2013 Vancouver SuperPrestige Cyclocross Series, presented by Shimano.  The weekend began in style with the New Brighton CX on Saturday and kept rolling with Vanier Park CX the following day.  One can picture many dimly lit garages and basements on Saturday evening full of racers rehabilitating bikes to be ready for the next morning.


Despite the Vanier event’s remarkable historical penchant for finding warm, sunny Fall days, this was the 13th consecutive annual running of B.C. most venerable ‘cross event.  In keeping with that ominous number, luck seemingly deserted us with the weekend weather biting hard.  The local racing community bit back harder, showing up in droves to make this our most successful Vanier CX ever with 230 registered riders on the full course racing for glory, plus two dozen hardy young souls turning laps and hopping puddles on the always popular kids’ mini-course presented by Steed Cycles.

Over 70 riders showed up Saturday July 13 to UniverCity at Burnaby Mountain to tackle what is arguably the hardest XC race in the province.
The 5th running of the Cardiac Classic: the Resurrection saw some bold changes including starting at the top of Burnaby Mountain at UniverCity, the beautiful oasis of homes surrounded by endless trails. In addition to the start location change we added some new trails such as Nicoles and Sidewinder making for a bit more technical descending and a little more climbing per lap. Racers chose to either tackle the short course or 2 and 3 laps of the long course. 
In the 1 lap short course David Magnusson took the win in a time of 41 minutes followed by Shane Patterson and Martin Kang. The women’s short course winner was Lisa Jeans, followed by Susan Weston and Alyssa Myshok 
The 2 lap long course winner was Chris McNeil in a time of 1:37. He was followed by Aaron Weiss and Sheldon Orr both representing Daryl Evans Racing. 
31 riders tackled the deceptively challenging 3 laps version. Fresh off his team of 2 win at BC Bike Race Kevin Calhoun had enough in the tank to take the win in a time of 2:17. He was followed by Sullivan Reed in a time of 2:21 and in third was Paul Berry in a time of 2:26.  
West Coast Cycling wishes to thank the many volunteers who helped stage the race. Special thanks also goes to UniverCity, SFU, City of Burnaby, BMBA, RaceFace, Schwalbe tires, Stans NoTubes for supporting the event.

altIn the spirit of Easter,  we at West Coast Cycling got together and decided that we too should get into the game of bringing stuff back from the dead, so we're bringing the Cardiac Classic back to life. With a brand new course layout and a Marathon format, it should prove nothing short of a revelation.  We're putting the 'fun' back in 'funeral': where the old Cardiac was a killer, Cardiac 2.0 is going to be a miraculously good time, with race options to suit everyone, from angelic to evil.
For those who just didn't enjoy the self-flagellation of racing up the steepest trails on Burnaby Mountain repeatedly over the span of a race, we're going to have a short course option.  For the rest who still like the taste of blood, you can still enjoy the downright religious experience of grinding up those climbs as many times as you like. 
Saturday, July 13th 2013 (NEW DATE!): grass-roots racing returns to Burnaby Mountain. It's going to be biblical.

West Coast Cycling is the new name chosen by the Board of Directors and approved at a special general meeting in the spring of 2012.

The new name is really the only change you can expect out of our club. Some will find the new name less intimidating than West Coast RACING while others may have enjoyed being part of a RACING club. Our sincere hope is that at the end of the day the name doesn't really matter so much. What should matter is that our club, WCC, provides members with a chance to meet other riders, train, race and feel supported by generous coaches and sponsors.

We also believe you should join other clubs and have priced our membership accordingly. Cycling is an inclusive sport best enjoyed with your buddies ripping around the trails or hitting the roads around the lower mainlaind. We provide all this in a casual and fun environment.

Check out the Membership page on how to register online!

Paying it forward

West Coast Cycling has always considered itself a good community partner. We enjoy organizing events that communities can get behind. We also like to give back in other ways too. Recently we became aware of a cause called Bikes for Tykes, spearheaded by James Wilson, Owner of Obsession Bikes. If you aren't familiar with James or Obsession, they are a passionate bike shop located on Lonsdale avenue in North Vancouver. We met up with James tonight to get more of an in depth look into the workings of this great cause. WOW, were we blown away at the operation James has running out of Obsession. James and the Obsession crew act as coordinators, mechanics, bike procurement gurus and accessory guys to ensure that those less fortunate have a 2 wheel steed to ride around. Partnering with local charitable organizations on the North Shore helps to identify the recipients. As the program grows so to does the list of beneficiaries. Needless to say we are thrilled to be donating $500 from WCC to this very worthwhile cause. The real success for Bikes for Tykes would be that other shops around the lower mainland take this initiative on. If anyone is interested and feelling a little philanthropic give James at Obsession a call and start doing some real good for your community.
