2008 'Cross Nationals Awarded to Edmonton
It is finally official - the 2008 Canadian Cyclo-cross Championships will be held in Edmonton in Argyll Park on October 18th, with the UCI-sanctioned Jim Horner GP to be held the next day.
This has been the plan for quite some time, but it took a while for all the paperwork to be ironed out with the UCI. As for the early date - this is due to the UCI not wanting Canadian Nationals to conflict with other major 'Cross races later in the fall. The normal date for cyclo-cross national championships in Europe is early January, however, that doesn't work too well in our climate...
