July 22, 2011 (Panorama Mountain Resort, BC) – The 2011 Canada Cup series cross-country (XC) race scheduled for July 30 at Panorama Mountain Resort has been cancelled, announced the Canadian Cycling Association on Friday.
Organizers were forced to make the exceptional and difficult decision to cancel the cross-country portion of the Canada Cup series due to low registration numbers.
The Canada Cup Series has been highly successful so far this season, both in terms of riders registration and quality of field.
The Canada Cup Series race in Edmonton, Alta, July 23, will be the series final race of the season. There will be changes to the calculations of the overall standings, as the best three results of the four events will now count towards the final standings.
The 2011 Canada Cup Downhill (DH) Series will end July 31 at Panorama Mountain Resort with the presentation of the third and final downhill race of the series.
