    Canada cup #1

    So the first Canada cup is going to be this weekend. March 4. It is in Victoria so I assume there is no snow, but how about the rest of Canada?
    I live n the South Interior and none of my friends are going, we haven't even been riding outside yet.
    Doesn't it seem a little early for most of the country? If you are fortunate enough to have been south for training then you will be a big step ahead.

    Because it's a UCI C1 race a lot of racers who are looking to add some UCI points for the start of the year will be there, likely a bunch from south of the border too. It is unusually early considering Canada Cup #2 isn't until May 20.

    Forecast for Victoria on Mar 4 is light rain and 5C for a high which would make it like the Canada Cup race at Mt.Washington in July 2007 where it was some frickin' cold and rainy. I think it was all of 7C that day.

    Way too early for the rest of Canada. Just a way to gather the national team riders in one place for an event to keep them motivated. If I had deep pockets I'd love to go though. Course preview vid made it look like proper MTB trails.

    At least the weather forecast has turned to merely cold for Saturday, only 4C or 5C for a high but no rain or snow.
