October 04, 2012 – On Sunday, October 7, Team Escape Velocity and Garneau Evolution are pleased to present the Escape Velocity GP of Cross in Port Coquitlam, the fifth race in the Vancouver SuperPrestige Cyclocross Series.
The race will be held at Port Coquitlam’s Lions Park. Look: it is Turkey Weekend, so get your ‘cross bike ready, come out and race. After the race you can go home to T-Giving dinner and throw down multiple plates of cooked bird, mashed potatoes, candied yams and pumpkin pie without feeling too guilty about it.
Although our expert course designers are still haggling over the final course details, you can expect a mainly flat, grassy course complete with an off-camber berm section, a ride-able (maybe?) pea gravel pit through the kids playground (NOTE: kids will be removed to comply with UCI regulations) and at least one set of barriers.
