November 23, 2012, Nanaimo, BC – Just a final reminder to all you cyclo-cross addicts: the COTR Island Championships are this Saturday at Beban Park, in Nanaimo.

MIVA (Mid Island Velo Association) is organising the championships for the second time. Comments about last year’s course were very flattering. Most riders loved the fast, technical, European style circuit with stretches for pace line, tortuous turns, and convoluted cross-camber.

This year there is a Real Canadian Superstore Nanaimo Bar hand-up for those who require mid-race sustenance, plus lots of good swag from the usual COTR sponsors, Island Cycle and Arrowsmith Cycles.

Just make sure to come out and ride or watch.
