Pacific Cycling Centre Masters athletes will be competing in cyclocross this fall and winter on Vancouver Island. Cross on the Rocks is a seven-race series that is growing in popularity with cyclists of all abilities. Describing itself as ‘a grass roots, laid back, fun, social, surprising competitive cyclocross series,’ the second race of the series took place last weekend in McLean’s Mill, Port Alberni.

The 2nd Annual Lumber Cross featured 38 Masters athletes starting the race with Jamie Emery moving to a top six position within the first lap. Mechanical problems caused him to change his bike but he managed to maintain a solid position, finishing ninth. Robin Willard also had a strong race until a front tire puncture forced him to withdraw.

The race was held in the oldest stem sawmill in Canada, McLean’s Mill and had a record turnout with 140 riders in all categories. Cyclocross is a great off-season cycling discipline, ideal for keeping in shape and working on the technical aspects of riding. Subsequent races will be in Victoria, Nanaimo and Ladysmith.
