The Cedar Shaker Cyclocross race at Revelstoke Mountain Resort returned for its fifth year last weekend. These are our favourite photos from the event.
Approximately 60 competitors ranging in age from six to 60 attended the Cedar Shaker Cyclocross race in Revelstoke, British Columbia, last weekend. The event was held under beautiful fall skies and the contestants took part in either the 15-, 45- or 60-minute-long race.
For those not familiar with Cyclocross, it involves riding something similar to a road bike but with knobby tires and cables that are routed on the upper side of the top tube so the rider can carry the bike comfortably. This is important because aside from time on the bike, athletes also have to quickly dismount, sling the bikes over their shoulders, and run through and over various obstacles from hurdles to giant puddles.
Part of the BC Interior Cyclocross Series, the Cedar Shaker Cyclocross race has been held at Revelstoke Mountain Resort since 2014 and, as with years past, racers climb a technical gravel section on the course, located in the base village of the resort, and then zig-zag their way through the rest of the track, which ranges from two to three kilometres.
Here are some of our favourite photographs from the event.
