The Master Men’s field was the largest BC has seen in years, prompting race organizers to provide a separate start time for their race. An incident at the finish line forced race officials to neutralize the Master Men’s finish. There was no winner declared for the race. Cycling BC will be looking ahead to find a replacement race for the Masters.
