Interior Grasslands Cycling Club to host Kamloops Cacti-Cross

Kamloops Cacti-Cross is among the most important events on the Interior Grasslands Cycling Club schedule, a two-day cyclocross spectacle that will bring riders from across the province to the Tournament Capital.

“Cycling B.C. wants to support our events because they want to be more than just a Lower Mainland organization,” IGCC president Mike Moonie said. “It’s important that, locally, people support it and come out and participate and watch.”

Day 1 of Cacti-Cross will be held in Pioneer Park on Sept. 22 on a track that will feature a variety of natural obstacles. The race will double as a stop on the B.C. Interior Cyclocross Series.

More man-made challenges will present themselves on Day 2, when Cacti-Cross moves to Prince Charles Park on Sept. 23.

Cyclocross combines road cycling and mountain biking. Many intermediate and elite riders will be using cyclocross bikes, which generally look like road bikes, but have thicker tires and stronger brakes on a beefier frame.

Beginners are invited to register for the event and do not require cyclocross-specific bikes.
