Please Note we are guests of the City of Winnipeg and we must leave the park in similar condition to which we find it. We are required to rake the course after we are finished. All riders are requested to bring a rake to help rake the course. Raking will
begin as soon as the A race is completed.
This race is organized by the cyclocross committee. As well as teardown we require volunteers for set-up and registration. If you can help please contact the organizer.
